About me and my therapy practice

I provide an Integrative approach to psychotherapy, where I work relationally with my clients, creating a safe, non-judgemental and supportive environment. This takes place either in-person or remotely over Zoom.

I am fully qualified with an MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy, both from Regent's University London.

I also have a Diploma in Sex Addiction and Compulsivity from The Laurel Centre, London.

My approach is to integrate a Humanistic, Person Centred, Relational approach, with Psychodynamic and Phenomenological theory to fully relate to my client. I use Motivational interviewing and CBT techniques particularly with people suffering with addictive behaviours. 

Experientially, I have found Mindfulness and Focusing to be of great value, both personally and in my client work.


Practice description

I have many years experience working with LGBTQ+ people; sexual and gender identity, HIV/AIDS, youth homelessness, male sexual abuse or rape. 

My work has encompassed working with young people, as well as adults, across a wide socio-demographic, in areas including; sexuality, HIV/AIDS, addiction (drugs, sex, alcohol, chemsex), male sexual abuse/rape, anxiety, depression, family issues, relationships and gender identity.
