About me

I offer an approachable, friendly and informal space for clients to come and explore whatever they feel necessary. I am non-judgemental, open and empathic and believe these qualities make me an effective and desirable counsellor and psychotherapist. I aim to provide a personable space where clients feel like we are collaborating and working together on their issues and concerns. I value humour and informality in making therapy an enjoyable and pleasurable experience for both me and my clients.

Who I work with

I offer individual (adult and adolescent) and couples sessions which can take place face to face in, remotely via skype or in certain cases, in the comfort of your own home.

I have experience of working with clients presenting with a broad range of issues and welcome the opportunity to meet you and hear about your particular situation.

I have a special interest and experience in working with mothers, parents and young people.

Some issues I work with:

Relationship issues
Separation and divorce
Postnatal depression
Weight loss
Eating disorders
Gender and sexuality related issues

How I work

My practice is best described as existential-phenomenological psychotherapy. Existential psychotherapy is a non-directive form of therapy. This means that I believe you are the expert, I do not claim to have any answers that you cannot find yourself, however it can be helpful to be supported in finding these answers and this is where therapy plays a part. As an existential psychotherapist I believe that enabling you to gain increased awareness of yourself and the implications of the choices you make, will lead you to live in a more meaningful and fulfilled way, and this is a main goal of therapy. The work is always collaborative, with me acting as a guide for you to explore what you choose.

Existential Psychotherapy

Existential psychotherapy is a talking therapy that draws on ideas from existential philosophy. Some central themes that inform my practice are: choice and responsibility, the search for meaning in life, mortality, freedom and relationships with others, ourselves and the natural world. Existential psychotherapists understand that emotional crises are devastating and need help to be resolved, but also believe that resolution can lead to a deeper sense of meaning in life and therefore enhanced well-being and life satisfaction.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm a BACP and UKCP registered psychotherapist with a pending professional Masters in pscyhotherapy.

I have experience of working as a therapist with a wide range of issues and in a variety of settings including the NHS and a women's domestic abuse counselling service. I've lived overseas and travelled extensively, working with non-profit community and human rights organisations. I have considerable experience working specifically with young people and youth workers. I'm inspired by philosophy, art and culture and enjoy working as an existential psychotherapist due to its innate links with these worlds. I have been running my own private psychotherapy practice in London for the last 5 years and see individuals and couples.

Member organisations


Accredited register membership


I offer a few different services, please see below for the option that best suits your needs.

(Prices vary depending on Location)

Standard one on one: £70

These are face to face, 50 minute sessions held at my practice.

One on one Skype / Phone Sessions: £60

Skype / Phone sessions last 50 minutes and occur at a regular time on the same day each week. These sessions suit people who have a busy lifestyle or are unable to attend a face to face session.

One on one double session: £110

Sometimes 50 minutes can seem too short for everything you feel you need to work through. Occasionally, following discussion you may choose to have a double session which lasts for 90 minutes.

Relationship sessions: £90

I offer relationship sessions for clients who feel it would be most helpful to come with a partner or family member in order to work through challenges in their relationship. These sessions typically last for 50 minutes.

​Supervision: £60

My formal training is in the existential approach, but I bring person centred and other humanistic elements into my practice which is best described as integrative. I welcome the opportunity to work with supervisees from all modalities.

Home visits: £130 (within the North London area)

Following discussion and an assessment (in person or by phone), we may decide that it would be best for you to have psychotherapy sessions in your home. These sessions suit those who do not feel able to travel to a session in my practice. Single sessions last 50 minutes.

Outside of North London, prices are to be discussed.
