I am an Integrative therapist offering Counselling and Psychotherapy. I combine a variety of therapeutic approaches and techniques to fit the needs of each client. I believe everyone has the ability to heal and live a fulfilling life, I want to support you to find a way to do that. In my practice, I provide a safe, non-judgemental space in which to promote healing at all levels (mental, physical, spiritual and emotional). I work with a dual focus on the mind and body connection, which enables a person to enhance their awareness of suppressed or unexpressed emotions. Together we will gain insights into old patterns which may be causing current negative thought patterns, behaviours and distress. This allows a person to be more in tune with their authentic self, be more present in life and gain resilience in how to become more comfortable with the uncomfortable.
Much of the latest research and development in psychotherapy brings focus to how our minds can affect how healthy our bodies are (brain-body relationship). As well as talk therapy we might explore mind-body exercises such as, mindfulness, relaxation and breathing exercises, movement practices inspired by TRE ( Trauma Release Exercises) and bioenergetics. In my experience, I have found that a dual approach of working with the mind and body as well as reflecting on the past whilst building one's capacity to be in the present (here and now) creates the best conditions for clients to navigate forward to strong emotional well-being and newfound resilience in mental and physical health. My therapeutic style is warm, reflective, honest and direct in a way that is always supportive and challenging when appropriate.
I work in beautiful therapy rooms which are easily accessible from all locations in London. They are only 3 minutes walk from Gloucester rd tube in zone 1 on the Piccadilly, District and Circle lines.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
