I work primarily as an Existential Therapist, namely I am interested in how you see yourself in the world, your relationships with others and what it means to be you. My approach is conversational and collaborative. You maybe struggling with a particular issue or feelings of being stuck. Or you may just have a feeling of things not being as they were but cannot see a way out. I do not seek to treat or cure your difficulties, but together we can deepen your understanding of yourself and become open to new possibilities. Gaining insight into your life and making small shifts can bring about surprising change.
If you would like to explore working with me, please get in touch and I will offer you a free 30 minute initial meeting online. If you then decide to work with me, we will meet once a week for 50 minutes on the same day at the same time.
I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist with a Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Existential Psychotherapy. I am registered with the UKCP and accredited by the Society of Existential analysis. Having grown up in different parts of the world, I am familiar with cultural diversity, and feelings of not belonging. Prior to my psychotherapy training, I studied Social Anthropology and worked in the financial and charity sectors.
Alongside my private practice, I work for a community counselling service with adults as well as with young people, a community youth centre and a NHS health centre.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
