About me and my therapy practice

I specialize in two deeply challenging aspects of the human experience: trauma and end-of-life. I support adults who have been in or have witnessed a life-threatening event and grappling with the enduring impact of these events on their overall well-being.  Additionally, I  support adults who navigate the complexities of their terminal illness, clients who care for a loved one in their end-of-life stages as well as clients who cope with the aftermath of grief and bereavement.

These challenging experiences tend to have an overwhelming impact on our wellbeing and can result in anxiety, depression or relationship challenges. Fundamental existential concerns, such as the nature of life and death, freedom, isolation, and meaning, frequently come to the forefront during these trying times.

I provide a safe and non-judgmental space where clients who face these life challenges, can explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I believe that everyone has the capacity for personal growth and healing regardless of the challenges faced or the stage of life one finds themselves in. I love supporting clients on their unique journey towards self-discovery and it is my experience that it is never too late for individuals for positive transformation.

Practice description

My experience covers a wide spectrum of traumatic experiences, secondary traumatic stress, PTSD, grief and loss, critical illness, palliative care and complex bereavement, enabling me to offer expert guidance to individuals and families navigating these deeply challenging personal and emotional journeys.

Throughout my career, I have been a successful frontline humanitarian aid worker, a hospital chaplain and a meditation teacher. I worked across diverse clinical settings, including hospitals, hospice care facilities, and private practice.

Meeting individuals, families and communities in their darkest hours I know, from experience, that everyone has the capacity for healing and recovery. I love supporting clients on their unique journey towards well-being and transformation.

A member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), I trained in and drew from evidence-based modalities including psychodynamic, person-centred therapy, Mindfulness, and EMDR. I tailor my approach to meet the individual needs and goals of each client. 

I am available for sessions at three locations in South West London—Wimbledon, Clapham, and Kensington. These locations are conveniently accessible from surrounding areas like Mitcham, Twickenham, Streatham, Brixton, Chelsea, and Mayfair.

Counseling sessions typically last 50 minutes and occur weekly. I currently offer a limited number of low-cost therapies for individuals interested in EMDR; feel free to reach out to inquire about availability. EMDR sessions extend to approximately 90 minutes, while initial assessment appointments last around 75 minutes.

My first session

 I'm happy to have a free 20-minute phone or video introductory chat about your needs and answer any questions you may have; we can then arrange an initial session for us to decide together if we are a good fit for your particular needs.
