I am a warm and down-to-earth psychotherapist currently working online on Tuesdays and Thursdays and face-to-face or online from my practice room in Dalston, E8. I can help you with anxiety, depression, low self-worth, relationship difficulties (professional or personal), loneliness and isolation, bereavement, traumatic experiences, life transitions and finding meaning - amongst other issues. You may have a more general sense of dissatisfaction or unease and not know exactly what's wrong. Whatever brings you, I am committed to helping you to 'see the wood for the trees,' to working with you to address your difficulties and to helping you to move beyond them.
I am a qualified and experienced Person-Centred Psychotherapist, which means that my work will be uniquely tailored to you. I offer a caring, safe and professional therapy relationship which keeps you at the heart of our work together. You will steer us: you decide what to explore at your own pace and for how how long you want to continue. I will do my best to empathise with you and will be honest and genuine with you, accepting and respecting you for who you are.
My initial academic and vocational training was in the performance arts. I bring my experience and understanding of the particular difficulties faced by actors, musicians and dancers to my work with them.
In addition, my MSc Dissertation research explored the experience of attending boarding school and the particular reverberations those who boarded might feel in their adult lives.
What motivates us to begin a therapy journey is as unique as we are and I strive to approach every client without preconceptions, regardless of age, sexual identity, gender, belief systems, levels of ability, ethnicity or cultural and social background. Do get in touch to find out more by dropping me an email or text or by leaving me a voicemail and we can arrange to meet. There's no obligation to continue.
