About me

I am an experienced Psychotherapist and a supervisor, UKCP registered, practicing in N2 East Finchley and W1G in Oxford Circus.

I have many years of experience working with a wide range of issues. Relationship issues, anxiety, depression, anger management, panic attack, eating disorders , low self-esteem and lack of confidence are amongst the most frequent issues that I work through with my clients.

As well as working in private practice, I have had experience working with people from diverse backgrounds in a number of mental heath settings and NHS provisions.

I also supervise qualified psychotherapists, counsellors and trainees .

My approach is integrative which means I can use a combination of several different approaches. The Integrative training has given me both in depth and rich training in different modalities and the freedom to choose what is right for a particular person or an issue. As there isn’t one single approach, which would suit all.

Therapy in my view is about creating a safe and trusting environment in which you can express yourself as freely as possible and get the opportunity to explore the roots of your problems and gain insight into patterns of living that may be destructive. This awareness can bring about the possibility of having choices, hence the ability to shift the stuck-ness or repetitive cycles.

Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I was an artist and a lecturer. I have found that therapy can bring about creativity in clients not necessary in its obvious forms (e.g.; painting, music) but in learning how to deal with frustrations, internal and external conflicts.

I provide short term counselling 6-12 sessions as well as open ended long term psychotherapy. I have experience working with a wide range of concerns and issues. As well as working in private practice, I have had experience in a number of mental heath setting.

I am a supervisor to both trainees and qualified psychotherapists. Currently I supervise at Maya Centre as well as in my private practice.

Training, qualifications & experience

I was trained at the Minster Centre (5 years) where I received an M.A in Integrative Psychotherapy and an Advanced Diploma in integrative psychotherapy and counselling. I have also completed Diploma in Integrative Supervision from the Minster Centre. I hold a diploma in advanced clinical Hypnotherapy. I am registered practitioner with the UKCP. I am professionally supervised by an integrative UKCP registered supervisor.
