I’m a qualified and experienced Person-Centred psychotherapist and have been working with clients since 2014.
There may be a number of reasons that bring you to therapy in this particular moment. These could be long term concerns, such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-esteem / self-identity and past trauma(s), or more immediate concerns such as the impact of COVID-19 on your mental health. You may also be looking to understand yourself better, perhaps with some sense of unease about yourself that you can’t quite put your finger on yet.
I offer a safe, warm and accepting environment where we can explore what is relevant for you, try to make sense of what you are experiencing and move towards more clarity.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a registered member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP); the leading organisation for psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors in the UK.
I hold an MSc in Person-Centred Psychotherapy from Metanoia Institute. Prior to my psychotherapy training, I have been in academia specialising in Neurobiology. Although I’m not actively in academia now, my understanding of the brain continues to enrich my therapy practice.
I have worked as a volunteer therapist, providing long and short-term therapy at London Friend, West London Centre for Counselling and Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Service.
Throughout my practice I have worked with a wide range of clients whose issues have included anxiety, depression, relationship issues, gender identity issues, self-esteem, cross-cultural issues, loss and grief amongst many others.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
