About me and my therapy practice

Associate Psychotherapist The Gestalt Centre London (UKCP Reg. 1996-present) - practising from the Gestalt Centre London NW1 (King's Cross-St. Pancras, Camden Town or Mornington Crescent stations); and from The City EC2 (Liverpool Street station area).   

I offer a therapeutic relationship affirming creative renewal, integration and wholeness, promoting clarity and mindful self-compassion. I draw on humanistic, attachment, relational, trauma recovery, Internal Family Systems (The Center for Self Leadership, level 1 cert. 2016), neuroscience, psychodynamic, cognitive and addiction perspectives. 

A core interest is the coping/survival adaptations, beliefs & self-judgement that can be triggered by relational distress, neglect and trauma, and how this can compromise self-image/esteem, diminish our expectations of self, others and life, and be a significant factor in various compulsions/addictions.  

By affirming the stability needed to safely attend to distress, identify our needs, better regulate/integrate intense feelings and trauma, we can feel increasingly embodied and at home in the present, to find greater clarity, peace, enjoyment, lightness and self-acceptance. 

Associate Tutor University of Surrey Psychology Dept (2010-2018) - facilitated personal/professional development groups for Counselling Psychology doctorate students.  Past group facilitator/supervisor the Gestalt Centre London.  Counsellor (1990-present) Reg.
