About me and my therapy practice

Whether you need help for a specific issue, or you feel that something just isn’t right, we can work together to identify, understand and sort through your problems. Therapyfolk is a safe, open-minded and positive space where you’ll be listened to without judgement.

I’m a qualified psychotherapist and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), with wide-ranging experience in both private and community-based practice, including The School of Life, the LGBT charity, London Friend and Examined Life

Everyone has their own unique story that shapes who they are. But we rarely have the opportunity to tell that story in a setting where we can feel truly heard and accepted, without shame or judgement. I take a Humanistic, person-centred approach to therapy, which simply means we’ll be guided by your needs. Ultimately it’s up to you how long you want to attend therapy for and how deep you want to go. I will be actively involved in the relationship, and will listen to you and support you with empathy and honesty as we explore and address the root of your concerns.

My first session

At the first session we’ll learn a bit about your needs and your goals for therapy. I’ll answer any questions you have about my approach and my experience and how the sessions will be structured. After that, we’ll work together to understand why you feel the way you do, and develop ways to cope with and make sense of these feelings so that you can live a more fulfilled life.

Talking about painful and difficult emotions and memories can feel scary or intense, and you may experience unwanted or new feelings. This can be an important part of the process and we can manage the unknown and the unexpected together.
