About me

I am a qualified individual and couple psychotherapist/counsellor, offering both short term and long term relationship therapy. I have trained at Tavistock Relationships, a well-reputed institute for psychotherapy and relationship counselling, where I also work as a Visiting Clinician and Assessor.

Starting therapy can be an exciting yet daunting process. You may have a lot of questions or feel trepidation at the idea of embarking on it. What I hope to provide you with is a safe, empathetic and non-judgemental space where we can begin to explore these anxieties and work towards reducing conflict, fostering curiosity and building self-awareness. I specialise in the psychodynamic model, with the focus on making sense of past experiences and understanding its effect on the present.

Below are some of the areas that I work with:

  • Difficulty Building Lasting Relationships
  • Breakdown of Communication
  • Anxiety, Depression, Grief & Loss
  • Lack of Intimacy
  • Pre Marital Counselling
  • Infertility & Trouble Conceiving
  • Parenting Difficulties
  • Affairs & Betrayals
  • Life Transitions
  • Separation & Divorce.

I also have experience working with couples and individuals from different ethnic communities and welcome clients from the cross-cultural, mixed-race and immigrant backgrounds.
