My Approach

As an Integrative Art Psychotherapist I work with a variety of psychotherapeutic approaches, which allows me to think about each person that I work with holistically. Broadly speaking, I adopt humanistic (relational, person- centred) and psychodynamic and attachment focused theories (how the past impacts the present).

About Me

I am an experienced HCPC and UKCP registered psychotherapist working privately from practice rooms in Shoreditch (E1). I offer an empathic, authentic, non-judgmental approach to exploring whatever questions, experiences, feelings or symptoms bring you to contemplate therapy. My hope is that through the therapeutic relationship you discover ways to feel better, more resilient, and to lead a more fulfilling life.

I am a psychotherapist who facilitates working with art materials alongside talking. The use of the arts alongside the core of speech-based psychotherapy, can offer another resource to help you more fully articulate and process feelings and experiences. This is particularly helpful at times when words are hard to find, or are simply not enough. There is no need for you to have any previous arts experience or artistic skills to benefit from arts psychotherapy. The use of creativity can benefit anyone.
