About me

At different points in our lives, we struggle with the feeling that our life has lost its sense of purpose or direction. This experience of aimlessness may lead to feelings of depression, anxiety or confusion.

Sometimes this lack of meaning arises after a sudden change in our circumstances such as the loss of a job, the end of a relationship, or a bereavement. At other times, we may feel that over time our lives have drifted further and further away from what we’d hoped for ourselves. At times like these, speaking with an existential therapist can help.

I am a London-based psychotherapist offering individual, group and relationship therapy, online and in person. I have a passion for working alongside people to help them uncover what gives their lives meaning. My goal is to create a safe and supportive environment where we can explore the challenges you’re facing. Together, we’ll discover what a life well-lived looks like for you. My therapy is queer, trans, and polyamory-affirming which means that I provide a safe space to explore life's challenges regardless of your sexual or gender identity or your relationship style.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a London-based psychotherapist offering both individual and relationship therapy, online and in person. I have a passion for working alongside people to help them uncover what gives their lives meaning. My goal is to create a safe and supportive environment where we can explore the challenges you’re facing. Together, we’ll discover what a life well-lived looks like for you. 

I initially trained in Integrative Psychotherapy  at the Minster Centre in London where I learned to work in a number of ways including Psychodynamic, Somatic and Humanistic approaches. I continued my post-graduate training in Existential Psychotherapy at The New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling in London. I draw upon all of these schools of thought to create bespoke approaches for each and every client I work with, ensuring that our work is suited to your goals for therapy and your views of the world. 

I also hold a BA in Gender & Sexuality Studies and a MA in Gender, Sexuality & Culture. Prior to my career as a therapist I worked in the arts and culture sector, specialising in supporting artists from marginalised communities make ambitious new work. Alongside my work as a therapist, I am an award-winning artist working across theatre, television, prose, poetry and mobile games.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Further information

As a therapist I acknowledge both systemic and overt forms of oppression that people experience when moving through the world, and so I strive to be aware of (and challenge) how those systems might be replicated in the therapy room. I have a particular focus in working with clients whose identities may be informed by experiences of otherness including:

  • LGBT, queer, and non-binary people
  • People practicing polyamory or other forms of relationship diversity
  • Working class people
  • People of colour
  • Disabled people including those with long term illness

These identities may or may not present issues that we look at in our work together, but working with a therapist who is sensitive to and knowledgeable about these identities can help you feel safer about being your fullest authentic self in the therapy room.
