About me

I work with people struggling with sex, love and drug and alcohol Addiction specialising in young people and women. However I do also work with men and with other disorders such as anxiety related issues. I have been working with Addictive disorders for the past 7 years and currently manage an all female drug and alcohol service for the Amy Winehouse Foundation in East London. I have also worked within Complex Mental Health Services and currently run a private therapy practice in North London.

I am able to offer both Skype and Face to Face Sessions. I work with a range of modalities and seek to provide excellent care and support to enable all those suffering from addictive disorders to achieve their goal of reduction or abstinence based recovery.

I will allow you a safe and non-judgmental space where you can talk and explore difficult or uncomfortable experiences or feelings. I use a combination of modalities to help you with your addiction and will support you through every step.

​You might be caught up in behaviours or thought processes that you learned from a young age that are causing you pain, or you might have had experiences that have been challenging to process. I will encourage you to express your feelings, emotions and experiences in an open, compassionate and non-judgmental way. I will also offer some directive support to help you tackle your addiction.

I can support you with the following​:

  • Addiction
  • Sex Addiction
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship issues
  • Stress management
  • Anger management
  • Bereavement
  • Low self esteem
  • Lack of meaning and purpose in life
  • Abuse
