About me

I am a trained existential psychotherapist practicing in London; I am currently working at the Dilemma Consultancy, and in my private clinic in North West London. I am also currently working with a number of Cancer support charities (Paul’s Cancer Support Centre, Breath Cancer Haven).

In my doctorate research project, I explored the lived experience of the bi-rooted migrant as such focused on themes such as migration, identity, home, belonging, transitions and choices.

I believe that every change in life may challenge our sense of self-rootedness and as such this research is relevant to many experiences of change or desire to change.

I am particularly interested in existential themes relating to experiences which confront us with our freedom of choice, our life choices and circumstances in past, present and future, and the growth it entails when we take ownership of it.

How to make a initial appointment: Please call me or send me an email, after an informal phone chat we will arrange an introductory session by the end of which we will decide if and how we will like to work together on a regular basis.
