About me

I am a Chartered Psychologist offering private counselling and psychotherapy in Central London as well as Online.

I work with a wide range of presenting issues, and my areas of specialty include:

  • Depression and low mood
  • Low self-esteem
  • Low self-confidence
  • Anxiety
  • Managing stress
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Video gaming (including video gaming addiction)

How I work:

  • Collaborative and integrative approach: I tailor my work to your needs and preferences, integrating different techniques and theoretical approaches.
  • Focused on your goals: Our work together is always informed by what you believe is most important to work on.
  • Structured and with a sense of purpose: We have a clear purpose for our work together, with regular reviews to assess how we are working towards your goals.
  • Safe, confidential and welcoming space: Sometimes, our difficulties may feel daunting to talk about with others and attached to feelings of shame or embarrassment. I can offer a safe, confidential and welcoming space where whatever you bring to therapy can be discussed openly and managed without fear of judgement.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Video gaming

One of my areas of special interest is video gaming, including both healthy and problematic engagement with gaming (including video gaming addiction).

In my private practice, I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals for whom video gaming is a significant part of their lives. This could include working in the gaming industry, streaming or e-sports, or otherwise be involved with video gaming in their day-to-day life.

I also work with individuals who would like to cut down on their video gaming or feels that their gaming hobby has become problematic.
