About me and my therapy practice

I  am psychodynamic therapist based in inner London. My focus is on behaviour and the catalysts behind it.

 I am the founder and creator of the Sport and Thought, Football as Therapy project which as an organisation works in both primary and secondary schools within the United Kingdom and Europe. I also set up and run the Pause,Reflect,Progress adolescent respite provisions in both London and Luton, working with children experiencing school based difficulties.

I work with both adolescents and children in a therapeutic context and offer consultancy on institutional dynamics alongside senior leadership teams in inner-city secondary schools and within the corporate world.

I set up the Sport and Thought organisation 10 years ago as a direct response to the lack of accessible spaces to support young people to have a place to understand themselves.My objective was and remains to make thinking and thinking about the self, more accessible to all and to remove what may be perceived to be the difficulty to this.

Prior to setting up Sport and Thought, I spent 10 years working with adolescents at the Brent Adolescent Centre with a focus on working with children and adolescents presenting with substance misuse issues, educational, home based behavioural difficulties and gang association.

If you feel your child, a young person within your care, yourself as a parent, carer or your organisation could benefit from talking with me, please do not hesitate to contact via email.

Consultations and work undertaken with individuals will take place online unless otherwise agreed.
