About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative therapist who can support you to navigate challenges and upheavals in your life, reflect on emotions, behaviours and relational patterns that may be causing you difficulty, and explore ways forward.

My priority is to create a warm, welcoming environment where you feel accepted and listened to with compassion and respect, and where, together, we can unpack any thoughts and feelings that you may be struggling with. 

As part of this process, we may consider how experiences or narratives from the past are affecting you in the present, giving attention to what troubles or limits you, while also identifying sources of strength and resilience to draw on. We will also explore what gives you energy, meaning and purpose, and how this can support and inform the way you live.

Practice description

I offer sessions online (via Zoom) and in person, in the King's Cross/Bloomsbury area of London. 

My interests include working with bereavement, living losses, uncertainty and life transitions, and patterns of perfectionism and people-pleasing. I am also passionate about supporting parents and carers who have experienced the challenges associated with having a baby or child who is very unwell, including those who have had to spend time in neonatal or paediatric care, and adults who may have been through such experiences themselves in early life.

I have a Diploma in Counselling and a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychotherapy, both from The Minster Centre, London, a leading integrative therapy training institute. I am also a trustee of MumsAid, a maternal mental health charity.

Prior to training as a therapist, I worked in the charity sector. I originally studied history at the University of Oxford and have always been fascinated by how the contexts we live in, and the narratives we inherit, inform our experience.

My first session

If you are interested in finding out more please email me to arrange a brief 15-minute telephone call, during which we can explore what you wish to gain from therapy, talk through any questions you might have, and discuss whether my approach feels like the right fit for you. There is no fee for this call.

I offer both short-term and open-ended work, and I usually suggest that clients book an initial series of six sessions, at the end of which we will review how things are going and whether you feel therapy is addressing your needs, with the possibility of booking further sessions after that.
