I am an attachment-informed integrative psychotherapist. Attachment theory stresses our need for relationships throughout the lifespan, while contemporary models of psychotherapy also stress the key role of the therapeutic relationship- as a foundation for growth, healing and change.
My background has been formed in working as a therapist in educational settings, where I initially worked on raising awareness in young people about global issues before I began training to become a therapist. Alongside private practice I developed and now manage an in-house counselling service for an arts organisation, as well as offering training, consultancy and psychological support to many educational organisations in London. My interests include working with issues of loss and adjustment for London’s diverse student population, often following developmental or complex trauma, or after changes in life circumstances. I believe therapy is an opportunity to deepen communication between parts of our own history and between people, and find creative and expressive practices, such as meditative and artistic traditions also contribute to this end.
