Training, qualifications & experience
I work as a counsellor and therapist in private practice in Dalston, E8. I have worked for several years in NHS Homerton Hospital as a psychotherapist.
I have experience of working with a diverse range of people in the voluntary sector, the NHS and in private sector. I have worked with people from a variety of different backgrounds and suffering from different psychological issues such as depression, chronic fatigue, anxiety and panic attacks, addiction (sexual, gambling, drugs), sexual abuse, trauma, grief and bereavement.
I have also volunteered for the Samaritans providing emotional support for people who are experiencing feelings of distress, despair or suicidal thoughts.
I have gone through a five year intensive psychotherapy training at WPF, one of the leading training centres for psychotherapists in the country.
I hold a Post-graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice from Roehampton University.
I also have a BSc in Psychology and have done a great deal of research on human behaviour and mental health.

I offer open-ended sessions that continue for as long is necessary to resolve the issues you’re dealing with.
