I am a BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist with fifteen years' experience of the global corporate world. I currently work for the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, where we specialise in treating anxiety and depression. I also volunteered for the Samaritans for several years where I helped clients suffering from severe mental health issues. I trained at Regents University School of Psychotherapy & Psychology, a top-tier training institution in its field. I run a private practice in Bromley and Orpington.
I grew up living in different continents and spent the first part of my professional career working in high-pressure environments in Europe and North America. These diverse experiences enabled me to develop a keen sense of observation for the varied manifestations of human behaviour, a sensitivity for its less visible facets and an appreciation for the impact that life's events, both past and present, can have on our sense of self and our relationships with others.
I believe that therapy entails more than just listening. There has to be an inter-subjective experience between client and therapist, where affect and meaning are reflected upon and processed in realtime - this is the micro-world of the present moment.
In psychotherapy, we value the sequence of present moments that occur between therapist and client as these offer an opportunity to explore those implicit assumptions that govern relations with ourselves and with others. It is in the supportive context of a mutual exploration of our affective world that we can forge novel pathways to improve the quality of our lives.
