About me

I offer a calm and safe space where you'll be listened to without judgment,  taken seriously and given space to reflect. Tailoring my approach in response to you as an individual, your particular needs and personality, I'll encourage you to be curious, not critical, about yourself, your life and whatever may be troubling you.  Therapy helps build your self awareness and supports you to know yourself better, regain your balance and find your own solutions.

Trained as an integrative psychotherapist my approach is holistic and I pay attention to the different aspects of experience (physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual) and how we each make sense and meaning in our lives. 

Alongside your current concerns we explore your life story, looking for links between your past and present experiences and behaviours, e.g. you may be repeating early family dynamics/patterns in a current relationship, without realising it. This understanding brings a new perspective and opportunity to change unhelpful patterns that limit you. 

My training and work as a Bereavement Counsellor in an NHS hospice for 5+ years means I'm  particularly skilled and attuned to this field.  My experience includes working with traumatic bereavements such as a suicide, accident, sudden deaths, death of a child. I'm also experienced in working with a wide range of other issues, for example:

  • Generalised anxiety disorder
  • panic attacks
  • loneliness and social isolation
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Depression
  • Family problems
  • Low self-esteem
  • Unresolved issues from the past
  • Life transitions (retirement, divorce, redundancy, illness)
  • student concerns (e.g.  exam stress, adapting to university life)
  • sexuality
  • long term illness
  • work difficulties
  • infertility and IVF

I offer long-term ongoing psychotherapy and time-limited work (usually 8-10 sessions).  I'm also experienced in working long term with psychotherapy/counselling/counselling psychology trainees from training institutions across London.
