A new Women's Therapy Group is starting in April 2018. Please contact me for further details.
I am an experienced psychotherapist, based in East London.
I trained and qualified at Regent’s University School of Psychotherapy & Psychology and have been working therapeutically since 2010 with both adults and adolescents. My professional experience includes working within private practice, palliative and bereavement counselling in a London hospice and school counselling. Trained in existential psychotherapy, I believe deeply in the capacity of open, compassionate and contemplative dialogue to heal and transform. Alongside private practice, I work as a psychotherapist with the Psychosis Therapy Project and as a training supervisor at The Minster Centre. I am also the Book Reviews Editor for Self & Society, the journal for the Association for Humanistic Psychology (AHPb).
I continually develop and extend my psychotherapeutic work and experience through further training in areas including group therapy, working with complex trauma, Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Focusing. My current research focuses on psychotherapeutic practice as a form of philosophical praxis and the ethics of social activism within psychotherapy practice. I enrich my therapeutic work through a committed meditation practice in the Zen tradition, attending regular retreats, seminars and meditation groups to deepen and inspire my practice. I also teach meditation to individuals and groups.
In addition to individual therapy, I also offer a Women's Therapy Group. This is a therapeutic group for women to explore any challenges they might be experiencing in their lives, within a safe and supportive environment. Please visit my website for further information.
My psychotherapeutic approach is informed by the traditions of existential philosophy and Zen practice which both see life itself as relational and dynamic. Both recognise impermanence, change, uncertainty, suffering, anxiety and death to be an inevitable part of our every day lives. The challenge of authentic living is to confront and find meaning within these existential givens, as opposed to avoiding, or denying, them. Psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to do this. I invite clients to pay close attention to their experiences; we work collaboratively in clarifying and reflecting upon their situations in order to gain deeper insight and awareness into how they might choose to live with greater meaning and connection to themselves and to others.
