I initially worked for a charity providing counselling in East London and also at a counselling and psychotherapy service in Islington, London. My practice is now in my home in North London.
My approach is as a Relational Transactional Analyst. I work relationally with clients as I believe it is the relationship that is formed between client and therapist that is paramount - for it is in relationship where trauma and pain occurred, so working with a relational therapist is where the healing can begin. Through understanding how we relate to others, we gain insights into how we relate to ourselves and find the potential for healing and change.
Sometimes we lose sight of ourselves and need a little help reconnecting, sometimes we become lost and sometimes we have that familiar experience of "why is this happening to me again?".
