About Me

Hi and welcome.

I provide a warm, confidential and non-judgemental space to explore your feelings and experiences. I'm a psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor which means I work with you in an in-depth way so that we can better understand your inner world. Through my warm and empathic approach I provide you with the security and space to pause and reflect, to feel your feelings and contemplate the relevance of earlier experiences and relationships to make sense of the present, make links, and gain new insights. From working with me I hope you would gain an improved understanding of yourself, feel more confident and better equipped in managing your difficulties and live life with increased pleasure and meaning.

People choose to start psychotherapy because of the struggles they face; often there is pain, sadness, suffering and loss with a sense of being stuck in it. It may be that you feel depressed, unfulfilled or anxious or perhaps you have experienced a trauma which continues to affect you. We can work through these difficulties and others together safely.

I value the individuality of each client I work with and I am skilled in building meaningful therapeutic relationships with clients. Where relevant, I consider the importance of race, culture, class, sexuality, community, society, and its impact. 

I am experienced in providing long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy and short term counselling to adults, children and young people in private practice, the third sector and the NHS.

In our busy lives where it is more convenient to have counselling online I value the benefit and quality of in-person therapy and I encourage you to truly carve out some time for yourself and feel the impact it has on you. I take great care in providing clients with a warm, calm, nourishing physical therapy space. I work from a contemporary therapy room in east London and a more luxury room in central London. 

I offer short-term counselling, time limited and open-ended psychotherapy.

You may want short-term counselling (e.g., 8-12 sessions) to work through a specific issue or there may be a few areas of your life which you would like to spend time exploring and working through in a long-term capacity. We can discuss your needs during your initial meeting and contract accordingly.

I would be happy to talk about how we might work together in a free 15 minute telephone call consultation.
