About me

Therapy offers a place to start to open up about what you are going through, experience empathy and feel heard. Throughout the therapeutic process you can start to build awareness and insight into their own psychology, change thoughts, behaviours and relational patterns that no longer serve you and to change your relationship with your self.

I offer therapy that focuses on reducing suffering and supports clients to find ways to a less troubled and more fulfilled and meaningful life. Clients come to therapy for various reasons which may include experiencing emotional or psychological distress, difficulties in relationships, going through challenging life transitions, wanting to understand themselves or their life better or wanting to work through past trauma.

I am integrative in my approach drawing on Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Relational psychotherapies. I am experienced in supporting clients with depression, anxiety, addiction, low self-esteem, clients experiencing relational difficulties and clients going through life transitions. I am also trained and experienced in working with PTSD and complex trauma. 

My area of special interest is understanding how mindfulness, meditation and yoga philosophies can inform therapeutic practice. I have trained in Ayurvedic Lifestyle and Nutrition at the Ayurveda Institute UK and Yoga at S-VYASA Yoga University in India.

I practice at the Kailash Centre in St Johns Wood, London and The Brighton Therapy Centre in Brighton. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a MA in Counselling Psychology, Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling and trained in Relational Psychotherapy, Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies. I have worked with clients in distress at counselling centres and charities in the UK, India and Canada over the last five years.
