About me and my therapy practice

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist & Counsellor based in Hackney (E8) and Woodford Green (IG8).

Whether it is your first time in therapy, or you are revisiting, understanding the therapist’s approach can be helpful. As an Integrative Psychotherapist I draw on a variety of therapeutic modalities but my overall therapeutic approach is grounded in existential and relational psychotherapy. My aim is to support individuals to explore their possibilities and choices to enable them to be agents of change in their own lives and to feel empowered by that change.

The therapeutic relationship is fundamental to the therapy and will be key to stimulating change for the individual. I provide a confidential and non-judgemental space where through talking, individuals can explore and understand their lived experience. The therapeutic work is guided by the client’s needs at a pace the client feels comfortable with.

I have experience working in both private practice and placement work, predominately working with individuals living with HIV or long term illness.

I am available to work with clients both face to face or online.

I have a MA in Integrative Psychotherapy & Counselling (Existential) and a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychotherapy & Counselling. I am registered member of the BACP and a member of the UKCP and SEA.
