About me and my therapy practice

Due to coronavirus guidelines, I am currently working with clients via phone or online video conferencing rather than face to face.

I'm a qualified and BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist. I aim to work in a warm, trustworthy and down-to-earth way, to support you with whatever is troubling you, whether it be anxiety, stress, depression, relationships, work, or other issues.

We all have times when life feels challenging. Feeling heard and supported, thinking through options and exploring the difficult aspects and feelings in our lives can make a real difference.

In counselling terms, I’m an integrative therapist. This means I’m trained to work in a flexible way, drawing on a number of therapeutic approaches, to find the best way of working for you. Some clients may prefer a more practical approach, perhaps developing coping skills or considering solutions. Others may want to explore past experiences, or find creative techniques using drawing or objects helpful. We will work together to find what’s most helpful for you. Above all, I will always try to listen to you, and help you in working through your thoughts and feelings to find the goals and decisions that feel right for you.

I work out of my therapy room in Old Street. My room is part of a suite of therapy rooms and is in easy reach of Islington, Shoreditch, Moorgate, the City, and many other areas of North, East and Central London.

I offer face-to-face counselling, and can offer short-term (time limited) or open-ended therapy.

I believe we all have our unique ways of understanding and finding meaning in the world, and of coping with the difficulties we face. Exploring the ways we have been living, developing those that serve us, and discovering new ways, can lead to renewal, hope and change.
