About me

I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist. I offer counselling and psychotherapy in London Bridge, West Norwood and Forest Hill. I offer short-term and long-term psychotherapy, depending on your needs.

My Approach

I believe that everyone deserves to have someone in their lives who can listen compassionately and hold a space of non-judgemental understanding. I try to offer that space, first and foremost. Psychotherapy is also about helping you to make sense of your past and present situation. How you achieve this varies, according to the approach that works for you.

Ultimately, the purpose of psychotherapy is to support your growth. Psychotherapy is not always easy. Therefore, it is important to find the right person for you: someone who you can trust and who you feel safe with; someone who values you, and your potential. If you feel we could work together, I would like to offer that space for you.

I respect and appreciate my clients' wisdom and knowledge, as well as acknowledging the input they need from me. I believe in listening to what my clients want and working with them to help them make real changes in their life. As an integrative psychotherapist, I use a number of theories (including humanistic, gestalt and relational/intersubjective psychodynamic), as well as draw on recent neuropsychological and trauma research, to provide the best approach for you. The underlying core of my approach is based on respecting your needs and safety.

Through psychotherapy, it is possible to feel better, as well as approach your life and relationships with more awareness, gain self-esteem, and find more direction and purpose in life. This has been my experience and the experience of many of my clients. I acknowledge that different things work for different people, and I am happy to speak with you about what you would like to get out of therapy.
