About me


Psychotherapy / counselling often accentuates 'problems' or what's wrong rather than helping people to cultivate and strengthen their innate strengths. I believe that we are all essentially healthy beings and my focus is to support people to reconnect with their healthy internal resources. Whatever it is that brings you to therapy, you have the ability to heal and grow; all you need is a safe, supportive space in which to do this


I have developed my own way of working as a therapist, over the past twenty five years. In technical terms, I'd say I'm an Integrative Therapist, meaning I draw upon several ways of working (humanistic, psychodynamic, CBT, gestalt, mindfulness, body psychotherapy). I believe different approaches work for different people so together we will find out what's best for you. At the heart of it though, is our working relationship. If that feels safe and comfortable then the work will happen. I work with a diverse range of people and feel incredibly privileged to help facilitate change, transformation and healing in my clients.


I run my own private practice, teach mindfulness, facilitate retreats and deep work writing groups, and supervise counsellors and therapists. My learning is always ongoing. I'm interested in body psychotherapy for trauma and anxiety, energy psychotherapy, the creative process, LGBTQ issues, life transitions, spiritual and existential questions, prenatal states and how these impact on us as adults, psychedelics, plant medicines, and creative approaches to therapy.
When I'm not working as a therapist I'm probably getting enrichment through the arts, meditating, writing or travelling.
I have experience working with Ayahuasca and psychedelics and have helped clients to integrate such experiences. Currently, I am training in Energy Psychotherapy, working with the body to restore balance and calm when in trauma or stressed.


I work with a diverse range of clients and have over 20 years experience working in organisations, hospitals, education and privately. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email if you'd like any more information or just want to get a feel for how we might work together.

My office is in Homerton, in Hackney, close to Hackney Central, Hackney Wick, London Fields, Dalston. Nearest station is Homerton Overground, and then a six minute walk. There is off street parking available in my block. I also offer Skype sessions if travelling is not an option.

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.
