About me

I am a qualified psychodynamic practitioner working privately in Shoreditch London and for a North London charity.

I provide a supportive non-judgemental, confidential, therapeutic environment for individuals to explore their worries, thoughts, feelings and everyday challenges.

I am experienced in working with overwhelming anxiety, feelings of isolation and aloneness, panic attacks, depression, stress, relationship difficulties, work-related issues, abuse, bereavement or loss, race or cultural issues, shame and guilt, low self-esteem, self-harm, eating-disorders, and family issues, all of which we can talk about in therapy.

How I work

I work in an empathic relational way and I provide a safe space where both of us (therapist and client) work together to explore your thoughts feelings and behaviours. The quality of the therapeutic relationship is an important part of the work together and I’ve found that gradually overtime you develop trust and security as we make sense of your current challenges. We make links to your past experiences with the aim to make the unconscious more conscious. This can lead to more self-awareness, provide relief from emotional suffering, building up a more robust person and ultimately promote significant changes to enable you to live more fully and creatively in the world.

I offer an initial consultation meeting which gives you the opportunity to discuss what has brought you to the point of seeking counselling and whether you feel comfortable working with me and if I think I can help you.

I offer short-term counselling (12 weeks) which usually focuses on an immediate issue you are experiencing or open-ended psychotherapy which allows us to work more in-depth over a longer period of time.

What to do next

Sometimes taking the first step to therapy can feel daunting; the idea of sharing your thoughts and feelings with a stranger can be anxiety provoking which is understandable. I work to support your first steps by taking the time to listen well without judgement. I respect individual and cultural differences and I take confidentiality very seriously.

My consultation room is located in easy reach of Liverpool Street Station, Shoreditch High Street, and Moorgate Station.

Please email or call me with any questions you might have or to arrange an initial consultation.
