About me

I am an experienced and fully accredited Integrative and Transpersonal Psychotherapist, Creative Arts Therapist and Counsellor offering individual psychotherapy sessions in North and East London.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to express and process whatever brings you to therapy. Perhaps you are going through a transition or a relationship breakdown, feeling low and unmotivated not knowing why, feeling dissatisfied with your job or relationship, or you want to work on some issues from the past. Whatever brings you to take this step, it can be very supportive to talk about how you feel to someone who is authentically present to you, begin to address the root of these issues and feel empowered to make the changes you wish to make in your life.

I am trained both as a talking therapist and a creative arts therapist which means that I work in a unique way; with creative & imaginative tools as well as talking- depending on the needs of every individual. My approach is relational, soulful and integrative; I draw upon a range of theories including Jungian, developmental, psychodynamic and transpersonal.

In my experience, therapy process can help us understand some of the unhelpful patterns we find ourselves stuck in and supports us in having greater awareness about ourselves, building our resilience, and accessing our inner resources. It is a transformative space where we can learn to live and relate from our authentic, creative, free selves- which I am passionate about in every individual.

Experience:

I’ve been practicing as a therapist for over 10 years. I’ve worked as the Lead Therapist in counselling organisations, founded and ran the Dramatherapy service in one of the leading mental health charities of Hackney and worked as the placement manager and supervisor of creative therapy trainees. My experience also includes working in psychiatric units, schools and geriatric care centres.

I’m experienced in supporting people with a wide range of issues including: depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, body image issues, eating difficulties, sexuality, relationship difficulties, loss of meaning, cultural identity and belonging, life transitions, bereavement and loss, spirituality, and experiencing creative blocks. I also do therapeutic sessions in working with creativity.

I work with clients from diverse backgrounds, ages (including adolescents and young adults) and cultures, and have specialist experience in working with people who are living away from their home countries.

Practicals:

We'll have an initial contact via email or a brief phone call, and then meet for a first session. During this session we’ll talk about what brings you to therapy and decide whether we want to work together in supporting you.

I practice from 2 beautiful consulting rooms; first location is just a few minutes walk from Manor House tube station. I am also based in HQ Therapy Rooms, a few minutes walk from Haggerston overground station.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
