I am an experienced counselor and psychotherapist providing in-depth long-term counseling and psychotherapy or short-term work.I work with individuals and couples dealing with relationship issues, finding meaning and direction in life, anxiety, addictions, low self-esteem, work related issues, creativity, and sexuality.
I offer therapy sessions in Central London, N16 Stoke Newington, N15 (Seven Sisters tube station) and SW4 (nearest tube Clapham Common). Centrally located with easy access from all central London.

- You may feel anxious or depressed or struggle to make sense of things.
- You may be failing at work, feeling isolated and fearful.
- A relationship may have broken down leaving you feeling out of control.
The integrative approach I employ in therapy takes the client’s needs as the basis for determining the right approach. I believe that the therapy should be tailor made based on your needs and difficulties and that our therapeutic work can only be successful if the relationship between the therapist and the client is one of trust.
I have worked in the NHS, charity organizations and private practice and I have clinical experience with a wide range of issues including difficulties arising because of physical or emotional abuse or trauma, bereavement, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, stress, phobias, relationship issues, difficulties with anger, problems connected to infertility, eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia and overeating), and problems relating to obsessive behaviours or thinking.
If the profile created above fits your needs, I may be able to help you. I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist with whom you can look at your life situations, dilemmas, and difficulties in a comfortable private environment.
