About me and my therapy practice

I have an MSc in Gestalt psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute and am a qualified child counsellor. I have worked with adults in diverse settings including the NHS and a number of charitable organisations since 2011. I have over two years' experience of working with children and young people, mostly in schools with Place2Be. In my City practice I cannot cater for under 18s but I have scope for children and also disabled access in my Lewisham practice. I have a particular interest in play therapy and in how a playful attitude and playful experimentation can enhance therapy for adults. If you are interested in contacting me for an initial meeting to see if we can work together please call me. I currently charge £10 for an initial assessment session. My fees are flexible as I am committed to providing low cost therapy to at least 50% of my clients

About me and my therapy practice

I work with adults and young people in my office at London Bridge and at home in Lewisham, where I also offer play therapy and sandplay therapy to adults, children and young people.

My primary training is in Gestalt psychotherapy, but I am also familiar with a person-centred and/or psychodynamic approach. I am currently completing Module 1 of a training in Internal Family Systems Therapy.

I believe each person deserves a tailored therapy, which respects their individual needs. I charge £10 for an initial assessment of one hour to understand the issues which have brought you into therapy and agree how we might work together. Subsequent sessions will each last 50 minutes, at a maximum cost of £50. I aim to offer subsidised places to up to 50% of my clients.

We will work together to explore your current patterns in relationship with others, and what may be preventing you from being able to make any changes you wish to make in your life. I will help you to heal any traumas from the past which are still having a significant impact on your life today. Gestalt is an optimistic therapy which believes in each person's potential to lead a satisfying life in connection with others. We will primarily focus on your day to day experiences in the here and now, while respecting your history and aiming to resolve unfinished business.

I provide long term therapy, with regular reviews with you of how the work is progressing. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions before proceeding to an assessment; I do not charge for initial telephone conversations.
