About me

We all experience times in our lives where things just get on top of us, be it for example through bereavement/loss, relationship issues or traumatic experiences. Sometimes the issues are more subtle such as feelings of dissatisfaction with life or a sadness we can't quite shake off.

I provide a safe, empathic and confidential space where distressing issues can be explored together without becoming overwhelming and a new understanding of yourself can be fostered.

Working in both the psychodynamic as well as the CBT (cognitive-behaviour) approach, I offer therapy for individuals on short-term and long-term basis. During an initial session we would establish if and how we can work together, whether working with unconscious dynamics or with a more skills- and solution focused approach.

I can help with issues such as: depression, anxiety, worry, panic, trauma, domestic violence, domestic abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, relationship problems, phobias, addictions, bereavement, loneliness, infertility, dissociation, self-critical thinking, low self-esteem, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), stress, divorce and separation, self-harm and suicidal thoughts.

You are welcome to contact me without obligation if you would like any further information about the way I work or simply would like to discuss the possibilities of psychotherapy.       

I currently practice from therapy rooms in the Telegraph Hill area and in Brockley (SE14 and SE4).

Training, qualifications & experience

I studied at Birkbeck University for 5 years, where I gained a BSc (Hons) in Psychodynamic Counselling and CBT. My clinical experience stems from working with a diverse client group in various settings, including the IAPT-service at the Maudsley Hospital in SE5 as well as voluntary organisations such as MIND in Southwark/Lambeth, Centre 70 Counselling Service in West-Norwood and Blenheim CDP in Bexley.

As well as working as a private practitioner I currently work for a voluntary organisation specializing in gender-based violence and trauma.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and comply fully with their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
