About me and my therapy practice

Taking the first step  to enter therapy can feel anxiety provoking and overwhelming. I do keep this in mind and endeavour to make you feel as safe and comfortable as possible to start exploring what has brought you to therapy. 

I have many years of experience providing individual and group psychotherapy in humanistic, psychodynamic, and CBT modalities with clients from all backgrounds. 

I am currently in the final stages of completing a professional doctorate in counselling psychology at the University of Roehampton. Some information about my research project can be found here

I work with adults on an individual basis, usually meeting once a week. The therapy can be for a limited number of sessions or open-ended depending on our agreement. 

Practice description

I am a registered member of the BACP working in private practice in East London. 

I believe that the needs of the client come before my affiliation to one specific therapeutic approach. I have had extensive training in theory and practice of person-centered, psychodynamic, and CBT frameworks. I believe all these approaches have something to offer and my practice borrows from the approach I think best suit the needs of the client.

Above all else I am an open, caring, and warm therapist and my clients have thanked me for offering a safe space to explore their difficulties and strengths. 

My first session

Psychotherapy sessions usually last 50 minutes. In the first session I will ask you some questions about what has brought you to therapy and we will discuss what you wish to gain from the therapy and come up with a plan.
