About me

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist living and working in London. If you are reading this, you may be feeling that you are not living the life you want. It may feel overwhelming to start addressing things that are painful. Or to open up conversations for parts of you that don’t often get expressed. There could be a specific issue that you feel needs resolution in the short term. Or there might be more continual difficulties that remain unresolved.

A therapy conversation may feel very different from talking to friends or family and can be an opportunity to learn how to feel better and live more authentically. I believe change can occur when we work together to create new possibilities. Our sessions are led by you and supported by me.

As an ‘Integrative Therapist’, I draw upon a combination of ideas and techniques. I feel it's helpful to provide both understanding and the chance for introspection, as well as proactive tools to support positive change. The range of disciplines that I draw from includes Humanistic Psychotherapy, Narrative Therapy, CBT and Solution Focussed Therapy.

I have an approachable, conversational style when working with a variety of issues, including:

- Relationships and dating, including dating apps
- Worries about sex
- Worries about social media
- Feeling down
- Family relationships
- Worries about work
- Concerns about health and wellbeing
- Anxieties about socialising
- Wanting to move on from the past

If you would like to talk further about therapy please feel free to get in touch. Following that, we can arrange an initial session and discuss how you would like to work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I come from a professional background in the creative industries. In 2015 I chose to train in counselling and psychotherapy and graduated with my diploma from BeeLeaf Institute in Contemporary Psychotherapy in 2019, and completed my psychotherapy placement at Local Counselling Centre in Letchworth.

During my training, I gained experience working with some of the specific issues that face younger adults, and am very at ease working with the 18-30 age group.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

What it’s like to have remote psychotherapy.

Technology has given us lots of new options for counselling and psychotherapy. Many clients are now meeting their therapists online or on the phone.

When our appointment time arrives we will speak either on the phone, using FaceTime or the video conferencing software VSee. I will send you more information regarding remote working before the session and you can let me know at any time if you have any questions.
