I am an Integrative Psychotherapist with proclivities to Existential philosophies. I believe that neither the mind nor therapy can be compartmentalised with immersion in any one modality. Clients offer varied levels of grasp and reflectivity into their own situation and the ability to apprehend their experience free of nuance, presuppositions, formulaic templates and inferences would constitute a pre-eminent concern for me. I therefore devoutly focus upon exploration of experience as the starting point of the hermeneutic phenomenology that I practice as against beginning, accepting or succumbing to categorizations such as depression, personality disorder, etc.
In my private practice and in my experience at IAPT compliant MIND Enfield & MIND Wandsworth & Westminster, I worked with the phenomenological mode of being with my clients. I have experience as honorary CAT therapist (Cognitive- Analytic) at NHS South London & Maudsley Hospital (SLAM) where I dealt with complex secondary care clients. I was also the Talking Therapies Assessor at MIND Wandsworth & Westminster. I specialised in Existential Psychotherapy (ADEP) from Regents University, London and also have an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and been practicing for the past 7 years. I further specialized in Trauma from Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation and have acquired Counselling for Depression (CfD) accreditation from Metanoia. I have appended and contrasted my understanding of Trauma, Anxiety and Depression from an Existential, Cognitive and Psychodynamic perspective and this is an ongoing research endeavour. I attest importance of content as well as context and remain respectful to other therapeutic modalities from which, I offer myself, the lenity of abstracting academic conceptions augmenting constructs and analogies.
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.
