About me

I am a qualified UKCP accredited psychotherapist and counsellor working in Chelsea and North Lambeth, I am also a trained bereavement counsellor. I have over fourteen years experience working with adults from different age groups, cultures and backgrounds. I offer individual long and short term therapy.

People come to therapy with a wide variety of issues and emotional difficulties they want to address.Therapy can be an opportunity to address feelings that are often difficult to talk about with friends or loved ones.

I offer a safe, non-judgmental relationship within which to explore your sense of self, values, relationships, and patterns of behavior. My approach is influenced by attachment theory and relational psychoanalysis, I believe that childhood experiences and relationships can tell us a lot about our ways of relating, I also place importance on an exploration of current experience, behavior, and values, with a view to taking responsibility to promote positive change in your life.
