I offer individual psychotherapy in comfortable surroundings for those who are in crisis or looking to explore who they are and/or who they want to be.
I practice in an existential way predominantly, which looks at the meaning that people give to the various facets of their lives. Issues such as authenticity, freedom, responsibility, choice, and interacting with others often surface, as well as any anxieties a client may be experiencing. Patterns of behaviour are also explored, so that clients can find a way of being that works better for them.
Depending on the circumstances, I also draw from my experience in psychoanalytic, person centred, CBT and trauma work.
What to Expect
Therapy sessions last 50 minutes and within this time the client decides what to discuss. My role is to guide this discussion, and create an environment that enables the client to trust the process and speak openly about issues.
Although I see adults with a range of issues, I also have a clinic at Dulwich Therapy Rooms specialising in mothers and mothers to be. Therapy sessions here are provided to help women to prepare for or adapt to their new situation and to deal with a new set of responsibilities and roles.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a doctorate in counselling psychology, with chartered psychologist status with the British Psychological Society, and registration with the Health and Care Professions Council.
I currently work in the NHS in an IAPT service where I see clients with a range of issues including perinatal concerns. I also conduct assessments there, including trauma and perinatal assessments. Whilst in training I also worked in a number of NHS placements, including a perinatal service, and a project for people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. I have also worked in a charity for women suffering from domestic abuse. In my private work, I have been seeing clients with a range of issues for the last four years.
