About me

I am a Psychotherapist based in Stoke Newington, on the border of Dalston. I offer a private, strictly confidential, and non-judgemental service.

In my practice, I treat established conditions, such as anxiety and depression. I also work with less defined relational issues (tendencies that prevent connection and intimacy) and repetitive destructive behaviours. 

Having an integrative training, my practice is informed by multiple modalities, including CBT approaches. The core is however psychodynamic. What I ultimately try to achieve with therapy, is to leave you with a sense of agency and empowerment, so that you are better positioned, to determine your life, in ways that are important to you.   

I have practised at multiple psychotherapy organizations across London, working with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, physical and sexual abuse, addiction, compulsive and obsessive behaviour, and bereavement which I have a great deal of experience with. These issues all feature ongoingly in my private practice, and an additional growing area has been eating disorders. One specific area of interest I have, is the repetition of trauma and loss in relationships.

Beginning therapy can be intimidating. In my experience however, the first session is generally felt to be a relief. The first meeting is an assessment session, where you tell me about yourself and your reasons for coming, and it is also crucially about deciding whether you feel we can work together – do you feel comfortable, might therapy be beneficial to you, and if so, in what ways?

Please see my website for further information. I am also happy to answer any questions, so do feel free to contact me if you have any, or to discuss setting up an initial appointment.
