About me

Whether our contract is long or short term, my intention is to help you to find hope and a way forward whatever your issues may be.  I am a friendly, warm and calm person and I aim to create a supportive environment through which you can make sense of your circumstances, even when they may feel overwhelming.  You will be able to talk about anything in a confidential space, knowing that I will not be judging you or being critical and through this, you will be able to think about new perspectives, new solutions and gain some relief.

How I work

Being an integrative therapist means that I am able to adapt my way of working depending on your needs, personality and timeframe. That said, I always work within a person-centred framework, which gives you space and time to bring whatever you need.

Sometimes it is important to talk about your past to understand where patterns of behaviour first started and sometimes it will be helpful to use creative methods, like working with stones and shells in order to help you to talk about what is going on. I bring an holistic approach so that we can work with any pains, fears or other sensations in your body.

What happens next

Please get in touch and we can talk a little more on the phone about whether I am the kind of therapist you are looking for.  At our first meeting I would like to hear more about why you are looking for therapy at this time and then at the end of this first session we can decide whether we would like to work together.  All of my appointments are 50 minutes.  Willen House is just off the Old Street roundabout and close to the City, Shoreditch, Hackney and Dalston.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am curious about each person’s unique experience and outlook, and would welcome the opportunity to stand beside you, whatever distress or difficulty you are going through.

I completed a BACP accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of East London in 2013, and am now a Registered Member of the BACP working within their Ethical Framework.

I have worked with people from a range of different backgrounds and with a variety of problems. I worked for a bereavement charity for a number of years and also with carers trying to cope with enormously stressful situations and loss. For several years I have been working with university students, including mature students and have valued the opportunity of accompanying them through an important time of transition.  In addition, I have worked for two holistic services in North London, offering longer-term therapy to clients with any kind of problem.
