I work flexibly, around my clients, and can offer online or face to face sessions, throughout the week.  I have availability in my private clinic based in North London. 

About me and my therapy practice

My approach to psychotherapy is integrative, adopting a wide range of modalities though I am existential at heart: I  tailor my  practice to suit each client individually, working with their preferences. This could include CBT, or person centred, psychodynamic and positive psychology. 

Clients have experienced me as especially warm and approachable; I am passionate about supporting and empowering those within my care, to make the changes they would like – to increase their experience of a feeling of control, and enjoyment to a more fulfilled life.

Practice description

I work to provide a safe space to explore difficulties and am comfortable working on a range of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship issues, addiction, trauma, self- esteem, or that relating to a sense of identity and the search for meaning in life. 

I have particular experience working with the LGBTQ +community and performers (professional musicians, actors etc.) 

I work collaboratively with my clients and emphasise the importance of autonomy- working alongside my clients to find alternative responses to live more contentedly and fully. 

I am currently undertaking a doctorate in counselling psychology, with a specific research interest in post traumatic growth in new mothers. 

My first session

During the first session I will go through what brought you to therapy in the first place, and why you have chosen this time in particular to explore what is going on for you.

It is an introduction to see how  we work together, as therapist and client, and create a space where you will feel comfortable and at ease.  

There is the option for a free 15 minute consultation over the phone or via zoom.
