MA Integrative Psychotherapy, UKCP registered

About me

Working as an integrative practitioner means that I draw from several theories of practice. I believe each person is wholly unique and what works for one person may not for another. At the foundation of all my work is our relationship, a safe, confidential space in which we can explore together what you’re going through.

I work with people who come to therapy for all sorts of reasons. Life can be messy, and we can feel lost. We can experience pain, stress, and anxiety. We can struggle with our self esteem, finding meaning in the world, or where we fit into it. We may be grieving those that we’ve lost and we can be thrown off course by life’s events.

It may be that you know what you are coming to therapy for, but it also might not be clear. You may just feel that things are not quite right - and that’s ok. There is no criteria for coming to therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy at Metanoia Institute. I work privately and in the community, seeing clients as a senior honorary therapist at Mind in Hackney and at the Centre for Better Health. 

I am a member with UKCP (one of the governing bodies who monitors ethical practice for counsellors and psychotherapists). My work is fully insured and supervised by a senior practitioner.
