I am an Integrative Psychotherapist based in Stoke Newington, with over twelve years’ experience.
I offer a private, strictly confidential, and non-judgemental service.
In my practice, I treat established conditions, such as depression and obsessive compulsive disorder. I also work with less defined relational issues and repetitive maladaptive behaviours. This second class, would involve tendencies that prevent one from being close to others or, behaviours that sabotage desired outcomes.
As a treatment method, psychotherapy aims to remove barriers to living a full life. What I ultimately try to achieve with therapy, is to leave you with a sense of agency and empowerment, so that you are better positioned, to determine your life, in ways that are important to you.
I have practised at multiple psychotherapy organizations across London, working with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, physical and sexual abuse, addiction, compulsive and obsessive behaviour, and bereavement which I have a great deal of experience with. These issues all feature ongoingly in my private practice, and an additional growing area has been eating disorders. One specific area of interest I have, is the repetition of trauma and loss in relationships.
Beginning therapy can be intimidating. In my experience however, the first session is generally felt to be a relief. The first meeting is an assessment session, where you tell me about yourself and your reasons for coming, and it is also crucially about deciding whether you feel we can work together – do you feel comfortable, might therapy be beneficial to you, and if so, in what ways?
I am happy to answer any questions or queries so do feel free to contact me in this regard, or to discuss setting up an initial appointment. Please also see my website for further information.
