My Approach

I am an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist providing a safe and confidential space for the exploration of feelings and thoughts. I respect everyone is unique and has their own way of engaging with this process. As an integrative psychotherapist, I draw on a range of theoretical frameworks and resources, including Gestalt, Psychodynamic and Transactional Analysis approaches. It is my belief that through engaging with therapy one can achieve a better understanding of self, feel more fulfilled and make the most of life.

I have helped people suffering from severe anxiety and depression including presenting factors such as addictive behaviours, past trauma, abusive relationships, work stresses, physical illness, people with complex mental health diagnosis such as BPD and conditions accentuated by the Covid 19 crisis.

The initial session will be an opportunity for both of us to introduce ourselves and explore the areas that could be the focus of the therapeutic work. This will allow us to reach an agreement in the type of support that will be suitable and could take the form of establishing goals or allowing space to see what might emerge later in therapy.

Alongside traditional talking therapy, I encourage the use of other modes of creative and artistic expression. This can provide further and useful insight, resonance and self-understanding. Often this will involve drawing or painting a picture to express a thought or feeling. Other times it could be listening to music or discussing art images. You do not need to have any experience to be able to engage with this aspect of the therapy. I have found the arts have a surprising and welcome ability to support the psychotherapeutic work, to enhance the therapeutic relationship and bring into the client's awareness relational processes that occur within the space. 

About Me

As well as running a busy private practice, I work as a therapist and supervisor at an addiction service in Central London, as well as supporting students at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education, Islington and delivering workshops to many organisations, including Aldeburgh Music, BAPAM and community groups.

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.

I have spent 5 years supporting people suffering and recovering from alcohol addiction as part of the organisation CGL, based in Central London. Addiction is a complex area that is prevalent throughout society. As a therapist I am interested in treating and helping the sufferer understand what lies behind the addictive behaviour; this could be difficult trauma or other early painful experiences that once understood or given meaning can support the person's recovery to find a way out of the addiction.
I have supported clients through the pain of bereavement and loss. I am particularly interested in supporting men and woman who are struggling with pregnancy loss and miscarriage.
Depression can feel like being stuck or lost in a fog. It can feel debilitating, confusing and sometimes frightening. Therapy, especially using the arts, provide a safe space to find meaning and relief, gradually emerge from the fog and to understand the patterns that might trigger depression in the first place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiCrniLQGYc
