I work with adults in individual therapy, both long-term and shorter-term. In addition to private practice, I also work at London Metropolitan University Counselling Service and at Claremont Psychotherapy Service. I have experience with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, life changes, OCD, eating disorders and bereavement. I have a lifelong love of music and a special interest in working with performance anxiety. I also run wellbeing workshops and mindfulness groups.
My approach: Existential therapy is a practical and relational approach which focuses on your real, lived experience rather than theories of the mind. In working together we will shed light on the difficulties you face and explore the possibilities and choices available to you. Through this collaborative working relationship we aim to identify what is meaningful to you and help you to move towards that with a greater sense of freedom and authenticity.
What's the next step? You can get in touch with me via phone, email or text if you would like more information or to arrange an initial session. We would then meet for an initial 50 minute session, with no obligation to continue. This meeting is an opportunity for you to find out whether my approach suits you, and for me to find out more about you and your hopes and expectations of therapy. If we then decide to work together we would meet for a 50 minute session at a regular time each week.
