My Approach

I am a relational, integrative psychotherapist which means that I integrate different therapeutic concepts and theoretical ideas when working with clients: I do not believe in a generic approach to psychological therapy, as we are all unique. I aim to develop a deep understanding of each client I work with, to tailor the best techniques to your needs and the therapeutic work. I draw primarily from psychodynamic, attachment, trauma-focused, existential and cognitive-behavioural theories, alongside interpersonal neuroscience research, holding the person-centred values of compassion, empathy, respect and care.

I offer both long-term and short-term therapy. We would meet for an initial meeting and discuss what you are looking for. If we agree to continue our work together, we will book a set of sessions. These sessions would be weekly, on a Friday, and last for 50 minutes.

About Me

I am an integrative psychotherapist and counselling psychologist in the final stages of training, with over seven years of cross-cultural experience. I work in a relational way with adults and young people on issues like addiction, relationships, bereavement, anxiety, depression, stress. I have experience with various mental health charities, a substance abuse service in a London hospital, the student counselling service of a London university and in a London school. When working with clients, my aim is to provide an open, caring environment to develop our therapeutic relationship and to understand the problem, its impact and the possibility of change.

  • Couples
  • Individuals

Special Interests

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.

For two years, I worked in a multi-disciplinary team in an addiction service at a London hospital. I have also worked with people who have addictions in various counselling charities.
I am currently completing my Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and Integrative Psychotherapy by Professional Studies at the Metanoia Institute and am writing up my research dissertation. The topic is on men's making meaning after the loss of a loved one.
I have experience of working as part of the counselling team in a women's charity where many clients had suffered domestic violence.
I am often drawn to trauma-focused theories when I am working with clients, whether it is to help with the impact of childhood abuse or the impact of (a) major, traumatic life event(s).
