About Me

I view psychotherapy as mainly an endeavour to “know thyself”. I take the position that through the acquisition of self-knowledge, the possibility of change can gradually manifest as a dynamic possibility.

My style of working is flexible, relational and dialogical. I will help you to gradually explore what the origins of your current difficulties are and create the meaning that is significant to you. You will be provided with a supportive and empowering space to explore how you want to project yourself into the future, by also carefully acknowledging the limitations along the way.

Although I am an existentially trained psychotherapist and counselling psychologist, I also value and employ humanistic and psychoanalytic ways of understanding human difficulties and dilemmas in my therapeutic practice. I will be therefore equally interested in your past and present experiences, but also your future potential.

I am an HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) and BPS (British Psychological Society) registered Counselling Psychologist and accredited Clinical Supervisor, and a UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and UPCA (Universities Psychotherapy and Counselling Association) accredited Existential Psychotherapist. I hold a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy, a BSc(Hons) in Psychology and an Advanced Diploma in Social Sciences.

Throughout my professional experiences thus far, I have held various clinical, organisational, research and leadership positions in the NHS, the social care services, the Department for Education, the Higher Education, the local government and charity sectors. I have significant experience in working with families, children, adolescents and adults in both individual and group ways of working. I have been trained and have particular interests in play therapy, psychodrama, family work, and intersubjective approaches to severe distress. Aside from my clinical work, I am also a Lecturer in Counselling Psychology at Regent's University London and provide freelance academic consultation and research supervision.
