My approach is Integrative which means that I draw upon different models of psychology and psychotherapy. This allows me to work flexibly, depending on your particular needs and experience.
Overarching my approach is an Existential Perspective. I work in a way which acknowledges that life is not straightforward or easy. At the same time I hold the perspective that to explore and consider life’s difficulties can lead to a new sense of meaning and direction in living.
I also work Relationally, and consider how life can be complicated by difficult experiences in relationships – past or recent. Negative experiences with others can have a very powerful effect on one’s well being. They can shape how you feel about yourself and how effective or satisfied you are in your life.
I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist and supervisor based in Islington, North London (N7).
I provide a confidential space in which individuals and couples can explore difficulties they are experiencing in their life.
Some of the issues I can help with include depression, anxiety, bereavement, self esteem, stress, relationships, separation, divorce,
illness, abuse and trauma, family, work, meaning and purpose.
