About me

Experienced, accredited therapist in East London offering telephone counseling, online therapy or face to face work, to explore emotionally difficult patches, stress, anxiety and to help you to move forward. I am an expert at working with a range of clients but have a particular additional skill set in working with tech sector employees and those who have a trauma history .

At this unusual time many people feel very stressed or worried about a wide range of topics. Common worries right now include : quarantine, difficult life events, insecurity about work, comparing oneself to others, anxiety and feeling pressured.

Most people have what therapy calls “an elephant in the room" (meaning that they have a hidden large problem or worry) that recurs frequently and they try to ignore it. They hope it will just go away, but it can take up more and more of their energy and thoughts. It could be compared to allowing too many programs to be open, at the same time on a computer. This also puts strain on the machine and makes it slower and less efficient . In people too, unresolved background anxiety can drain them, and makes thinking slower and less efficient. In extreme cases, these wild thoughts and worries, running unconsciously in the background, keep running even when your body is asleep. They can lead to strain in all areas of life.

If some of that sounds like you, then talk therapy can better file and cope with these worries better, process life events and allow your brain to return to optimal efficiency, as information gets stored away more appropriately and the body learns to be less in panic mode, when it should be relaxed.

Knowing when you need some extra help is a sign of strength.

I am an accredited member of  a professional body and appear on their online  register which offers an assurance of quality and confidentiality. I am also police checked ( DBS registered) and GDPR registered.

I can help you cope better with life's challenging segments. People seek help for topics such as: workplace stress, anxiety, depression, feeling sad or unfulfilled, managing an abuse history, anger management, addiction concerns, panic feelings, Imposter syndrome, poor self esteem, post traumatic stress symptoms, bereavement, and dissociative disorders to name but a few as examples.

This style of counselling helps people experience more self confidence, a better understanding of difficult past experiences and better ways to cope with present difficulties.



Training, qualifications & experience

In addition to being a therapist in private practice in Stratford, London, I have experience as an N.H.S. specialist practitioner and work as a consultant and supervisor.

I work in an integrative style meaning that I use different approaches like a tool box to suit different people.  I will support and challenge you, working collaboratively and with respect for your own life choices and beliefs.

The primary goals of the way I work are to teach people to steer better through stress, not just mentally hang on and allow it to control them. Therapy does not simply address symptoms, but supports people to take positive steps of permanent change. This is done by building on the resources they already have. It teaches skills for stress management, we may find it is not usually the actual things that distress us, but how we interpret those things,  or our own outdated way of reacting to those things. Learning how to pause, reflect on inner experience, not react hastily and emotionally and just let thoughts and feelings be, can help ease stress and anxiety. Understanding why past life events can sometimes trigger overwhelming feelings, is a process that can be thought through, understood and changed for the better.
