About me

People seek help from a professional when they are feeling overwhelmed from life issues such as stress, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, isolation or depression.  A current emotional difficulty could be a symptom of something related to past experiences. 

As a therapist, I will create a confidential and a safe space where you can explore your worries and problems. I understand that contacting a psychotherapist could be a big and daunting step. However, you might be surprised how talking to a trained professional could help you enormously not only to address your problems, but also to re-establish a relationship with yourself. 

After contacting me, I would arrange an assessment session, which we would use to understand what is the best way of helping you. If you should like to proceed, the therapy sessions are 50 minutes, on weekly basis.

I offer long-term therapy but also short-term work, which could be helpful for specific problems such as anxiety, loss of motivation or low level of depression.

Long-term psychotherapy is more in-depth work and explores the past experiences and how they  might have shaped who you are today. By working through these experiences, they could be fully processed and this brings a better sense of understanding yourself and taking control over your emotional life. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy. The UKCP is the professional association for psychotherapists who practice in the UK.

I have a Masters degree in psychotherapy and I have had further training in group psychotherapy with the London Institute of Group Analysis.

I have worked for many years in different treatment programmes, facilitating group and individual therapy sessions. I have experience in the field of addiction, substance misuse, dual diagnoses and I have worked with clients who have suffered from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, loss of meaning  and past difficult emotional experiences.
