About me

I believe the experiences we are presented with, as well as the resources we have available (both emotional and physical), directly impacts how we cope/ respond in life. Because experience is diverse, it is important to tailor our work in therapy to your needs.

My special clinical focus is anxiety, bereavement, burn-out, compulsions (e.g. alcohol, substances, sex), existential crisis, loss, panic, problems with eating, self-harm, stress management and relationship issues (partner/ family/ friends/ colleagues).

I also offer therapy for diagnosed mental health problems in conjunction with a GP or Psychiatrist.

My Approach

I understand that we cope in the best way we can but still may be left with feelings such as powerlessness, fear, shame or guilt. For people who are hurting or feeling numb, I offer a resource of support.

Human connection and the quality of the relationships we have really matters in life and I value this in therapy to. My approach is sensitive to this. While I do draw on my expertise, the work we would do is collaborative.

My Qualifications

I am a chartered psychologist (BPS), a Counselling Psychologist (HCPC) and a registered supervisor (RAPPS) with twelve years experience.

In terms of my professional background, I am a faculty member at a London University, teaching on the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology. I lecture on psychological theory (attachment theory, psychodynamic theory, phenomenology, existentialism) as well as issues of social justice and cross-cultural therapy.

Previously, I worked with aid workers and refugees/ asylum seekers, young people in care and parenting support for their carers, in bereavement support services, and have manged various psychotherapy services in London (for people bringing a broad range of issues).

Length of Therapy

This depends on what we agree on the first session and you an also change this at any point. We would first meet for an initial consultation, where you can talk about your concerns/questions and where I will ask  bit about you, so we can establish how we might work together.

It may be in short-term focused, goal-orientated sessions or open-ended, exploratory therapy.

Sessions are typically weekly, but again - this can be tailored to suit your needs.

Length of Sessions

Sessions typically lasts 50 mins. 90 min sessions are also available.


Face-to-face (individual or couple therapy) sessions are in my practice, located less than 1 min walk from Liverpool Street Station, at 154 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 4LN. Please note it is on the 4th floor - there is a lift but no disabled access.

I also provide online therapy (e.g. via Skype) and/or telephone sessions to accommodate the needs of busy professionals or people living outside London or the UK.


Face-to-face: Thursdays 4.30pm - 10pm.

Skype/ telephone sessions: Monday daytime / some evenings.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Counselling Psychologist and Chartered Psychologist with ten years of experience in counselling and therapy within private healthcare, public and third sector contexts.

I am currently a lecturer and placement coordinator on the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at the University of East London. I also work as an academic consultant for the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling.

Previously I have held various posts, including: Clinical Manager of a psychotherapy service in North London (5 years); Counselling Psychologist within therapeutic residential units for adolescents in care (5 years); Clinical Manager in a service supporting people experiencing domestic abuse (3 years). I have also worked within in an addictions service, a forensic rehabilitation unit, a private therapy clinic and for Mother Tongue - a charity providing support through skype to humanitarian workers stationed abroad (e.g. in refugee camps). My research experience is with forced migration and humanitarian aid and so I am particularly attune to working cross-culturally.

I am registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and as a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS).
