My Approach

My clinical approach is integrative with a specific interest in psychodynamic, humanistic, existential, Jungian, and attachment theory alongside neuroscience. A solid therapeutic relationship is key to facilitating the client’s inner strength and healing process. I understand the importance of providing a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental space in order to promote a journey of self-discovery through the creative process. I recognise the transformative potential of the creative process: it can aid the expression of feelings that are difficult to verbalize. I have worked in several clinical settings within the National Health Service (NHS), including the specialist personality disorder service, gaining experience working with adults with a variety of psychological difficulties. I have expertise in offering medium and long-term individual and group therapy. Currently I am offering online sessions.

There are many reasons for considering psychotherapy: you may wish to explore a specific topic or longer-term difficulties. The initial consultation will be an opportunity to explore together what brought you to therapy, your background history, to ask questions and decide whether we can work together. If I am not the right person, I will connect you with a trusted colleague who can help you, from the London Art Therapy Centre or beyond.

About Me

I am a qualified integrative arts psychotherapist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and the UK Council for Psychotherapy. I am also a medical doctor specialized in neurology, and an accredited practitioner of Mentalization-Based Treatment (MBT). I completed my PhD at the Institute of Neurology, University College London. Having always had an interest in psychology, psychotherapy, and the arts, I went on to complete an MA in Integrative Arts Psychotherapy at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education London. I am trained in both talking therapy and art therapy, and completed a foundation course at The Institute of Group Analysis, London.
