About me

I am an Integrative clinical psychotherapist and Arts therapist; working humanistically and relationally, in order to create a tailored therapeutic approach for each individual.

Offering a compassionate, confidential and non-judgmental therapeutic environment that can support the expression and integration of complex feelings, which leads towards greater awareness and healing. This allows me to support people with a wide range of issues.

My many years experience of working within a range of arts includes theatre, music and writing. Over the last 15 years my focus has been on facilitating the self-development of others through psychotherapy, creativity and mindfulness.

I run a private practice in North London as well as working part-time with the Cognitive Analytic Therapy team at Guy’s Hospital, with previous experience on the Acute wards at the Maudsley Psychiatric Hospital (South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust).

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.
