About me

I am a Chartered Psychologist (BPS) and a registered Counselling Psychologist (HCPC) offering therapy to individuals, couples and families, from a diverse range of cultural, social and religious backgrounds. I work flexibly, dialogically and interactively, tailoring therapy around the unique needs and difficulties of each client.

For many individuals, the decision to seek help with personal struggles through therapy is an understandably daunting experience. An important part of this journey is finding the ‘right’ therapist. Although theories and techniques are important, in my view, the success of any therapeutic work is largely dependent upon the quality of the therapeutic relationship. With this in mind, my approach is always aimed at facilitating a genuine, honest and real engagement with my clients founded upon trust, care and openness that allows for exploration of personal and sensitive issues within a safe and confidential therapeutic space.

I have several years of experience working with different client groups across a wide range of settings (NHS, private and charity sectors) including primary, secondary, inpatient and forensic services. My experience therefore involves working with varying levels of human distress that have included both short and long-term therapeutic interventions.

How I work

As an integrative practitioner I draw a variety of different therapeutic approaches including; humanistic, existential and psychodynamic. These approaches are utilized flexibly, in accordance with your own subjective needs, and with the aim of helping you understand your issues and find clarity in your situation.

I take a relational stance towards my therapeutic work which means that I pay particular attention to the intricate ways in which the relationship with ourselves, with others, and with the world around us, impacts how we engage with problems in living and life in general. The focus of our work is holistic in nature, taking into consideration your past experiences, your present situation and your future ambitions, in order to connect with important existential questions about what is meaningful to you and how you wish to live.

How can therapy help?

There are many reasons why someone might benefit from therapy. It can enable people to widen their perspective on themselves and the world around them, to understand themselves and their dilemmas better, to come to terms with past, current or future crises, and to gain clarity in discovering a sense of meaning, passion and purpose in their lives, helping them to take stock of their current predicaments and enabling them to finds ways of living that are most satisfying to them.

I am currently seeing clients online as well as face-to-face 

Training, qualifications & experience

As noted in my profile, I have several years of experience working across NHS, charity and private settings with individuals with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, phobias, psychosis, post-traumatic stress, personality difficulties, meaninglessness, and relational difficulties.

In addition to my clinical practice, I am also a supervisor, trainer and a recognised fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I have spent several years working in academia on doctoral trainings in counselling psychology and psychotherapy, including leadership roles, teaching and training, clinical supervision, research, and viva-voce examinations. I am deeply passionate about existential, phenomenological, and postmodern philosophies, and their application to clinical practice.
