About me

Hello and thank you for visiting my page. You are likely here because you are going through things in your life that you need support with, and you might be considering if counselling can help, or if I am the right therapist for you.

I have a warm and down to earth approach. I bring this into my work as an integrative UKCP and BACP therapist, where I use different skills and theories which I tailor for each person I work with. This collaborative approach helps me to understand your unique needs, and how you can be supported with your hopes and goals for therapy.

I work with people dealing with depression, anxiety, work-related stress, relationship issues, loneliness, bereavement, low self-esteem, anger, bullying and much more. Please visit my website to get a more in-depth feel for me and how I work.

Very often we have the answers to life’s challenges inside of us, but they can seem out of reach when we are distressed, resulting in feelings of being overwhelmed or stuck. This is where therapy with me can help you. I provide a confidential and non-judgemental space where we will work together to untangle your thoughts, behaviours and feelings to help you gain clarity, personal growth and the means to identify and change unhelpful patterns in your life.

I work from a bright and well located room on Shoreditch High Street; currently these appointments are full. My Clapham practice is full, though I have some availability for weekday online sessions. Please contact me to make an appointment

My approach:

To give you a clearer idea of what 'integrative therapy' looks like in practice; I may use psychodynamic thinking to help you understand your past or how you relate to people, or humanistic (person centred) theory to focus on developing a stronger sense of your identity. Perhaps you have broader questions about life and death, so we may look existentially at what you are going through. If you are open to it, we can also think about how the body holds your emotions to help you understand and work through your feelings - this can be done with simple breath work and mindfulness.

For many years I worked in public relations and marketing in London, so I understand the demands and stresses of the corporate world, and the impact this has when living in a busy, and often anonymous city.

Finding the right therapist for you:

In your search for a therapist, it’s important that you find someone you feel safe and comfortable with. The best way to figure this out is to meet face-to-face, and you can start things off by emailing or giving me a call - I offer a free 20-minute telephone consultation.  Afterwards, we can decide together how to take things forward.
