67 Grosvenor Street
As a fully registered and insured psychotherapist, I offer psychotherapy from a calm and discrete location in Mayfair. Whatever the challenge you are facing at the moment which has led you to consider psychotherapy, my intention is to work with your struggle in a compassionate, confidential and non-judgemental way. I warmly invite you to get in touch.
Perhaps you are struggling with overwhelming moods or emotions such as depression, jealousy, anger, shame, guilt, low self-esteem or anxiety. Perhaps you are facing difficulties within your relationships, within your friendships, within your family or within work? Or perhaps you are struggling to make new relationships and connections. Or perhaps you are struggling with a long-standing issue such as childhood abuse or trauma which may be impacting your life today.
Psychotherapy can bring relief from pain, depression, anxiety, trauma, low self-esteem, loneliness and shame. It can empower you to feel less stuck and give you more confidence and clarity. Psychotherapy can help you to understand and heal from traumatic events, either recent or in childhood.
I am always respectful of the autonomy and inner resources of each individual. I believe that therapy can be an empowering experience. I will foster a compassionate, creative and confidential space for healing and exploration. I trust that you will discover and strengthen your own inner resources and discover a way of experiencing your emotions and living your life in such a way that isn't overwhelming or confusing. For me, therapy isn't about receiving advice or ready-made 'solutions' to life's difficulties. Rather, it is a collaborative process of discovery which can be creative, healing and challenging.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a UKCP registered existential psychotherapist, supervisor and workshop facilitator with extensive experience working in private practice, NHS, charities, and academic institutions. I have experience of working with clients of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicities. I completed my 5 year training at Regents University.
Prior to my training in psychotherapy, I worked as a teacher in secondary schools and within the music industry, primarily in studios and publishing. Teaching and the music industry can both be stressful environments, this experience was what inspired me to retrain and work in a more therapeutic way. I am also a published writer, avid reader, lover of music, foodie, mental health advocate and mother. I draw upon all my experiences above in my work as a psychotherapist.
I have a particular interest and extensive experience of working with adult children of toxic, alcoholic, addicted, abusive, narcissistic, and/or absent parenting. I also work with clients who have come from divorced backgrounds.
Toxic family environments can extend to our working environments and I have extensive experience of the everyday trauma and impact of working in stressful situations, especially within academic settings and within the music industry.
I am also one of the Music Industry Therapist Collective - http://musicindustrytherapists.com/
We are a group of ex-music industry psychotherapists and counsellors with a broad range of music industry experience and a variety of therapeutic trainings, orientations and specialisms. Our therapists have experience of working at record labels, recording studios, publishing, as bookers/promoters, tour managers and as artists and producers
