I work from my private therapy room in Clerkenwell near, Farringdon and Kings Cross and Angel. I offer a quiet, confidential, non-judgemental space where we can work together. My approach is an integrative one, combining different ways of working to suit you as an individual to help you bring about change.
I believe the therapeutic relationship is a creative and collaborative process. The relationship works in two important ways. Firstly, it is creative, in that new thoughts and solutions may be considered. Secondly, it is collaborative, in that you, the client plays a major role in achieving ways to move forward. Between us we can gain insights that let us see things differently. This allows the space to make changes and choices that can lead to a more contented and fulfilled life.
Alongside my private practice I currently work as a volunteer for a Bereavement agency in central London.
