About me

I am a qualified and professionally trained Integrative- Relational Psychotherapeutic Counsellor MBACP.  

I have trained in Sensory Motor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems training (at the IFS institute the only official training) as well as starting Somatic Experiencing training.

I now mostly use a blend of IFS and Somatic Experiencing please look at my website for more details

I can offer help with a wide range of issues. I work with a diverse client group. I offer support with anxiety, depression, PTSD, Complex PTSD, OCD, sexual abuse,  abuse, DID, bereavement, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, relationship issues, sexual difficulties, identity issues, sexuality, coming out later in life, gender identity, spirituality and suicidal ideation. 

I work with Trauma at Khiron day care clinic Harley Street.

I have worked for many organisations including:

The NHS in primary care, a trans and non-binary people's holistic wellbeing and sexual health service in the Maudsley, a suicidal residential respite charity and other organisations such as Crisis and the Terrence Higgins Trust (Sex Workers In Sexual Health).

My background is in theatre so I like to bring creativity and fun into my work. I love yoga and dance which fuels my interest in work with the body. Mindfulness and meditation are tools i find helpful in assisting us living in the present.

I work collaboratively with my clients: it is particularly important to me to empower people to gain insight And relationship with parts of themselves and their body. 

Training, qualifications & experience

An integrative-relational psychotherapeutic counsellor means I work with a range of different counselling and psycho-therapeutic theories. This approach is extremely effective in valuing the uniqueness of each client. 

I am trained to Internal family systems level 1 and 2 (the official training), sensory motor psychotherapy and undertaking 3year somatic experiencing training.

I currently work both in private practice and in Khiron Clinic Harley Street a day clinic for clients wanting to recover from trauma.

I work with the body(somatically)- body responses often can uncover hidden states, emotion and trauma. Sensory Motor psychotherapy is holistic and studies the relationship between the mind and body in regard to psychological past.   Somatic experiencing was developed by Peter Levine a way of processing body memories and working with the nervous system.  Internal Family Systems is an approach which values and works with different parts of us.

Up to date research shows the old talking therapies and separating mind and body can be ineffective.  We will build an awareness of how body positions stature and responses can impact on thought process and vice versa.  With awareness and integration we can better live in the present moment.

I have had extra training and experience with

Trauma - trauma can show up in lots of different ways often disconnection us from our body's symptoms such as self destructive behaviour (anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, addictions),  disassociation, anxiety-pannick attacks and overwhelming feeling like sadness or anger   I can work with you to help overcome these symptoms and guide you through a process of stabilisation grief and healing.

Gender, sexuality and relationship diversity-  Some clients come to me want to explore sexuality or gender and what that means to them.  Others come from LGBT+ community and I support them with coming out, coming out later in life (and/or exploring this and what it means),self acceptance, systemic shame, discrimination and self image. 

Eating disorders and body image-I have experience in working with disordered eating and body dysmorphia.  I attend the body dysmorphia/OCD action conferences and training yearly.  I work with eating disorder recovery. 

Relationship/attachment-  I have trained with developmental psychology and attachment issues.  ranging from healing after unhealthy relationship,  struggling to form secure relationships, co-dependence, relationship with self and family dynamics.

I have worked for many organisations including:

Khiron Clinic- I currently work at this day clinic alongside my private practice work.  Here I run groups in psychoeducation and neuroscience for trauma as well as a range of other group activities and creative processes.

NHS- i worked within the NHS as a psychotheraputic counselling supporting people presenting with anxiety, depression, feeling of sadness and isolation, work stress, body image issues and eating disorders
Clini Q- I work for a trans and non binary health and wellbeing service as a psychotherapeutic counsellor with clients dealing with issues around gender dysphoria relationships systemic trauma 
Maytree- i volunteered for years supporting clients with suicidal thoughts within a residential respite centre. Often presenting dual diagnosis or issues with relationships, anxiety, depression and eating disorders.

If helpful we may look together at some ideas to explain and normalise your symptoms - drawing from neuroscience and ideas on the nervous system- Polyvagal. I use Janina Fishers trauma informed stabilisation treatment to work on safely integrating trauma memories and theories on the nervous system such a polyvagal theory to create a safety within your own body decreasing symptoms such as anxiety stress and depression.

My work is client led, we go at your pace - I see my role as support and empowerment.

My practice is in Fitzrovia central London I have a light, airy, comfortable room.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
