About me

Hello! I am a warm, friendly and compassionate Creative and Embodied Psychotherapist offering a confidential, non judgemental and collaborative therapy space. I embrace what makes you unique, prioritising safety and trust from the get go, so you can embark on a therapeutic journey of exploration, healing and change.

Creative and Embodied Psychotherapy is a holistic and trauma informed approach to wellbeing, that works with the body and the mind to help you gain deeper insight and awareness into your inner world and experiences, whilst helping you connect with your strengths, resources and ability to heal. Creative therapy is dynamic, supporting emotional and nervous system regulation, and the building of new neural pathways, which can lead to sustainable and positive new habits.

Alongside talking, we may work with creative tools to support your process. This might be visualisation and meditation, movement and music, sand tray and objects, image cards and archetypes, art making, creative writing, role play, ritual and cycle work, tools which help you to tap into and give expression to deep unconscious feelings and processes, and to explore the different ‘parts’ of your psyche. 

My work is underpinned by attachment theory, neuroscience, polyvagal theory, Internal Family Systems and Psychodynamic concepts. Whichever way you choose to work, at the core, will always be a respectful and authentic therapeutic relationship.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience within the NHS forensic and probation services, and the charity sectors, working with complex mental health conditions. I am particularly experienced in working with clients with EUPD, suicidal feelings, attachment issues, neurodiversity and burnout.

I currently work in private practice at The Awareness Centre in Tooting, and as a psychotherapist within the Health and Justice Service for the NHS. My previous role was providing therapy for Autistic young people, and for a feminist theatre company.
