About me and my therapy practice

I provide a comfortable, relaxed and safe environment suitable for people from all walks of life.

During my 3 years of training I have worked with clients struggling with bereavement loss and grief, I currently work in a rehab part time as well as clients within my thriving private practice.

The issue with addiction is that it is abandonment of the self, and there is usually an underlying unprocessed trauma or issue that is troubling the person consciously or unconsciously. I particularly enjoy working with the inner child, helping clients to nurture and build themselves up with a new encouraging internal system rather than a critical, punishing one that no longer serves a purpose in recovery whilst looking at shame, codependent tendencies and other unhelpful coping mechanisms developed to survive traumatic experiences.

With grief, I find that it's not a linear process and it can usually bring up any past loss and traumatic experiences and the difficulty can be the overwhelm of navigating through it all. 

Practice description

Within my own practice I work with anything from generic anxiety, trauma and depression which is what brought me into becoming a therapist myself. 

I have a fondness for spirituality and love yoga, meditation and other practices which help me with my journey to healing the self. I am passionate in what I do for a living and have dedicated myself to helping others having found freedom from some of the issues I was afflicted with, why wouldn't I want to help others!

I am part of AZURAMINDS in Harley Street an organisation developed to support people within the workplace do look us up, my private practice consists of working via the zoom platform until it is safe enough to have people in my home again in North London (Highbury). 

My first session

I offer a free 20 minute chat to see if we are suited to each other before we go through the assessment process. 

During our first session together, we will focus on what it is you feel you are struggling with currently and we will go through an assessment to cultivate a care plan on how we will move forward with treatment options.

I offer short-term and long-term therapy depending on your needs or preference.

I will look forward to hearing from you, Best wishes on your journey!
