My approach is humanistic and integrative, and my style is embodied, relational and creative. Alongside Gestalt, I also draw from disciplines like Psychodynamic, Existential, Neuroscience, Somatic and Sensorimotor therapies to meet and support the different situations my clients present. I understand the significance of the mind-body connection in healing and how important the therapeutic relationship is for nourishing the safety necessary for this to happen. I am especially focussed on using embodiment and creative methods in a whole systems approach to therapy; issues of culture and difference; and the role of therapy in the service of social justice and equality. I am trauma-informed, attachment-focused, and deeply committed to antiracist, anti-oppressive practice. I am an ally and an LGBTQA+ and neurodivergent-affirming therapist.
I support clients facing a range of challenges, including anxiety, depression, work-related stress, relationship difficulties, sexuality issues, body image and eating disorders as well as bereavement/loss.
I’m a Gestalt therapist and I split my practice between working one-to-one with individuals and doing relationship therapy with romantic partners (spanning the Gender, Sexuality and Relationship diversity (GSRD) spectrum), as well as with siblings/family members, friends, and co-founders/work colleagues. I also co- facilitate personal development groups for The Centre for Better Health in Hackney, and I am currently working with cultural change agency Senseia on the roll-out of an antiracism programme for Cornwall and Devon Police.
With a background in factual and documentary filmmaking, I have always been captivated by the power of human stories to inspire and connect us. As a therapist, I view every person’s story as a potent force for self-discovery and self-renewal. By working creatively and collaboratively with you, I hope to breathe fresh life into your outdated narratives and turn dramatic life moments into important opportunities for meaning-making and personal growth.
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.
