About me and my therapy practice

Whether you're facing a crisis, aiming to improve your quality of life, or simply seeking a deeper understanding of yourself, therapy can help you navigate the experience. As a psychodynamic psychotherapist my therapeutic approach centres on exploring the unconscious and often overlooked processes that influence our thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Together, we'll work to uncover patterns in your life, and to build an understanding of the interplay between your past experiences and current struggles. Therapy is a collaborative process, the insight gained can help us to look at life from a different perspective, to develop a better understanding and acceptance of ourselves and to foster more meaningful relationships.

I bring to my practice, over a decade of experience in the international development sector, where I focused primarily on gender equality and women's rights. I worked closely with others to tackle complex social and human rights issues, including gender-based violence, and the real-world impacts of exclusion and marginalisation. My work as a psychotherapist is grounded in this experience, drawing from an awareness of broader social and cultural issues. We live in a world that does not treat us all equally, this can have a profound impact on our wellbeing and sense of self. In our sessions we can explore these influences and seek to understand how they have shaped you, and your experiences. 

I have a Masters in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Counselling from the University of London, and experience working within the NHS and community counselling service. I am currently training in Mentalisation-Based Therapy with the Anna Freud Centre.  

Practice description

When you work with me, I will offer you a warm and authentic space. My aim is for you to feel safe, and able to share your intimate thoughts and problems without judgement.

 I work both online, and in-person. My clinic is in Dorking, accessible to surrounding areas such as Leatherhead, Reigate, and Redhill.

I offer shorter-term (3-6 months), and longer-term open-ended therapy. We can discuss this during the initial assessment session.

Sessions are 50 minutes long, and will occur at an agreed, regular time each week.

My first session

If this resonates for you, please send me an email. I aim to respond within 24 hours, and will invite you to a free 15 minute introductory call to see if we think we are a good fit.

We will then schedule an initial consultation session of up to 70 minutes which is an opportunity for us to talk about what is going on for you in more detail, to think through what has brought you to therapy at this time and to get a feel for how we might work together.

During this session we will agree a regular weekly time and day to meet and I can answer any questions or queries you may have about the therapy.

If your situation is outside of my clinical expertise I will do my best to assist you with a further possible referral.
