About me

I am a warm and empathic psychotherapist, counsellor and coach. I believe that these approaches, when used effectively, are able to raise our awareness of our behaviours, our patterns and our less effective ways of dealing with life and relationships. When we identify these patterns, we may find new ways of responding and relating to ourselves and to others, which can help us make important changes in our lives.

As a humanistic psychotherapist, I see you as an individual with your own unique story and response to the world. I work with you in a confidential, non-judgemental environment so that you are free to explore any issue you choose and at a pace that is comfortable for you.

I began my career in Public Relations, working in the City in London where I developed an attention to detail, coaching and communication skills, and a keen interest in how people behave and respond to their life experiences. I understand the challenges of balancing work with other demanding commitments and pressures we might have in our lives, including relationships, parenting and family. I work closely with people to help them manage this balance, particularly when life can seem overwhelming or flat. As a parent myself, I am interested in supporting parents, both in their roles as parents and as individuals in their own right.

Through my practice at the Barnsbury Therapy Rooms I work with individuals and couples both face-to-face and using Skype. I have previously worked with parents and teachers at the St John of Jerusalem Primary School in Hackney, as well as carers at the City & Hackney Carers Centre. In both places I ran groups as well as individual sessions.

Some of the issues I focus on range from self-esteem to addiction, eating disorders, body image, anxiety, burnout, anger management, career changes, and communication skills.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a member of the BACP (MBACP) and am in ongoing training, supervision and professional development at Spectrum, a UKCP registered centre for humanistic psychotherapy and training. I draw primarily on Gestalt Psychotherapy and Formative Psychology, as a basis for my work.

I hold an Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Certificate in Counselling Skills and am trained to work with both individuals and couples in the areas of Anger Management, Addiction, Eating Disorders, Sexuality and Childhood Sexual Abuse; and Pregnancy and Pregnancy Loss.

I comply with the BACP's Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
