About Me

I am a UKCP-registered integrative existential psychotherapist with extensive experience in delivering long and short term psychotherapy to individuals and couples. I have 12 years’ experience of working therapeutically in higher education, the NHS and in private practice.

As an existential psychotherapist, I am particularly interested in how we make meaning of the world and of our lives, and how this affects our day to day functioning. Experiencing a crisis of meaning can be a major source of stress and anxiety. If your life starts to feel meaningless to you, you may end up in a hopeless and depressed state. The therapist’s role is to navigate the difficult feelings that can arise in the process and help you find renewed purpose in your life.

As an integrative psychotherapist, I combine elements from different schools in my approach, including psychodynamic, humanistic, existential, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and mindfulness. I have worked with clients experiencing many different issues, including (but not limited to) anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictions, relationship issues and religious and spiritual matters. I am also experienced in supporting team members and managers with work-based conflicts. Additionally, I have considerable experience in supporting clients with diagnosed mental health conditions, including bipolar disorder, personality disorders and clinical depression.

My research interests include spirituality and mental health, holistic wellbeing and integrative and pluralistic psychotherapy. I currently teach at the Existential Academy in north London. I am also available for clinical supervision and academic supervision for doctoral students and would be happy to hear from potential supervisees.
