About me

Hello and welcome to my page. I am a warm, down to earth and experienced psychotherapist, offering short-term and long-term counselling and psychotherapy to adults in London.

Whether you are finding it difficult to cope, would like support for a specific issue or are feeling stuck, therapy can offer you a safe space to explore any difficulties and develop more self-awareness.

I have extensive experience working with people of varying ages and from a range of cultural and social backgrounds. Common issues I work with include: depression, anxiety, relationships, family, culture, work, bereavement and loss, identity and self-esteem. I also have specialist training in trauma informed therapy and experience working with people suffering from the effects of trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD).

How I work

I believe that everyone is unique and tailor my approach to suit individual needs. I see my role as helping you to become more aware of your own resources, supporting you to gain greater self-awareness and self-acceptance so you can make meaningful and lasting changes in your life. I aim to co-create a space of trust and will work with you to explore the issues you bring to therapy.

I take a holistic approach where I see you as a whole person (mind, body and soul) and am sensitive to cultural, sexual and social differences. As well as talking about your thoughts and emotions, I may also encourage you to notice your breathing, body sensations and beliefs in relation to what we are discussing to support your self-awareness.

Next steps

Research shows that the relationship between client and therapist is key to successful therapy, therefore it is important that you find a therapist who will be a good fit for you.

If you are thinking of working with me, please get in touch. I am happy to answer any questions you have and I offer a free 15 minute telephone discussion to help you decide if you would like to meet me for an initial session.

Coming to an initial session can help us both decide if we would like to work together, but there is no obligation for you to continue.
