My approach has been shaped by my professional and personal journeys. Through growing up in a diverse area of East London, I have experienced and observed community struggles and problems which have influenced my outlook on life, and nurtured an interest in trauma, attachment, and resilience and the legacy of family relationships. I see my role as a facilitator and therapist providing a scaffold to explore options and support a journey of self-discovery and growth. I believe a life is a dynamic collection of experiences and emotions, and my role will involve helping to make sense of these, encouraging reflection on why you do the things you do and why you are the way you are.
I am a qualified systemic psychotherapist and systemic supervisor.
I have worked within the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and with young people and their families involved with the youth justice system and children’s social care. I support adolescents and parents to make positive life choices; develop their skills in emotional regulation and communication and learn ways to manager feelings of anger and aggression.
I also specialise in working with people who struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma-related symptoms and relationship struggles.
I have a private practice offering therapy services and professional development.
I am a volunteer with a charity which supports survivors of child sexual abuse, rape and sexual violence, and have experience working with people who are living with trauma.
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.
