As a therapist I believe that we need some one-on-one time with another in order to stop, step back and reflect. Many people come to therapy at a point in their life when they are stuck, thwarted or feel they have stopped living.
I am a psychodynamic practitioner, which means that I am interested in how your past experiences play out and affect your life and relationships today. In therapy we can think about how some internalised experiences can prevent you from living the life you want to live, and together explore other options that can offer solutions.
I have experience in working with a wide range of issues including: depression, anxiety, eating disorders, loss and bereavement and self-harm. However, my speciality lies in working with women affected by physical, sexual and emotional abuse both in child and adulthood. In a warm, confidential space, we can together explore the past and present experiences that block you from moving forward. Together we can work towards finding ways to break repetitive patterns that hold you back from the changes you would like to see in yourself.
I offer an initial consultation to see how we might work together, as well as to give you an idea of how I work. If you don’t feel psychodynamic therapy is for you, we can explore other options and therapies more suitable to your preferences.
Training, qualifications & experience

Qualified member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)
My work includes running therapy groups at a well-known organisation for female survivors of abuse, as well as providing private therapy sessions.
I also work with parents and their children through art and creative play in primary schools within London.
I incorporate art into my private sessions with adult clients if it is something they feel interests them. It can be a great way into ourselves; especially at times that we may be emotionally stagnated or unable to articulate feelings.
