About me

Welcome. I'm a psychotherapist/counsellor, dialectical behaviour therapist (DBT) and mindfulness teacher. I welcome clients with a range of personal difficulties whether expressed through anxiety, stress, depression, relationship and family problems or other life challenges.

Whatever your current difficulty, my training and experience gives us a choice of possible approaches from the structured and logical to the more fluid, creative and intuitive. My approach to therapy in private practice is integrative. This means that I trained in a number of therapeutic models, including relational, experiential and behavioural therapies, which enables me to tailor your therapy experience to your emotional needs and concerns rather than trying to fit you into a particular type of therapy.

I have continued my professional development in couple counselling and have special interest in supporting couples to regain and enhance emotional intimacy by exploring and understanding their difficulties and putting into action more helpful ways of interacting and communicating. The approach I have found particularly transformative is based on Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, pioneered by Dr Sue Johnson.

During the initial meeting, which lasts 50 minutes, you will have time to speak about your concerns in a non-judgmental and confidential setting. This will enable you to see if you feel comfortable with me as your therapist. We will then allow for a few days for you to think and decide if you want to continue working with me. Following assessment I will adjust my way of working to your personality, expectations and specific needs. My goal is to work with you to help you become aware of what holds you back from living your life to the full and to manage obstacles more effectively.

During subsequent sessions I will help you to make sense of your circumstances and to put in place workable solutions. These will provide you with a greater meaning of where you find yourself in life. We would further develop such solutions to ensure self-fulfillment in the present moment as well as equipping you with the tools for a positive and well prepared future to meet life’s challenges.

I am also the founder of the only independent London-based ‪programme in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy as developed by Dr Marsha Linehan for self-harm, intense emotionality and borderline personality disorder. Along with my colleagues I share Dr Linehan's vision to make compassionate and scientifically valid treatments available to people with complex emotional difficulties.

I work from a counselling room in London Bridge which is located only a brief walk from the station. For people who cannot access this service due to location or mobility reasons I am offering therapy and mindfulness training via Skype and other online platforms.

I also facilitate mindfulness-based retreats and personal development programmes in the beautiful setting of Gozo in Malta where through unique experiences you can feel supported to live with an awakened mind, open heart and relaxed body. By using modern mindfulness practices, as well as yoga, bodywork and horse-assisted therapy you are supported to improve your ability to manage emotions, cope with stress and gain deeper understanding of your relational and social patterns. Although these retreat are open to general public they can be of particular relevance to people with a history of depression and anxiety, stress, addictions and those who are seeking alternative methods for healing and personal development.

Experience
I have a wealth of experience providing counselling and psychotherapy in the NHS, third sector and privately. For a number of years I worked specifically with people experiencing difficulties with low mood/depression, anxiety and phobias where I supported them using techniques based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). Between 2012 and 2017 I provided team-based Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) at an NHS personality disorder service to people experiencing longer-term difficulties associated with self-harm, emotional instability, impulsivity and borderline personality disorder. Along with my colleagues at Mind-Reframed we have successfully supported over 150 private clients with similar difficulties since 2015.
