About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I am an experienced, accredited psychotherapist and counsellor working in specialised counselling/therapy rooms in Shoreditch, London. I aim to provide a secure, open, non-judgemental, and trusting environment so that through self-understanding you are able to discover effective ways of supporting yourself. My client base is varied and ranges from adolescents to people in late adulthood, and my clients often describe me as warm and attentive.

My main therapeutic approach can be described fairly simply: I aim to be present and interactive with you throughout each session, discovering how you view yourself in relation to others and the difficulties you want to understand or resolve. I will also be reflecting back what I have observed and heard so that you can discover some important things about yourself, enabling and empowering you to see things from different perspectives, and opening up opportunities to make more informed decisions.

My general approach is eclectic, incorporating a variety of ideas and approaches that might be helpful or effective. Some of these include Existential Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, or Solution-Focused Therapy. Furthermore, I value empirical/evidence-based findings which help inform my work.

Every individual processes things at different speeds, and so the work we do will accommodate the pace in which you feel most comfortable. Moreover, while much of the work occurs in the counselling room, the majority of personal work can be done in-between sessions. I offer both short and long-term limited work, and we will discuss how appropriate whatever option would be best for you.

I have worked in various settings and institutions ranging from a counselling centre, a prison, drug and alcohol recovery/rehabilitation centres in clinical settings, a secondary school, and in a higher-education setting.
