About me and my therapy practice

Developing greater awareness about ourselves increases the possibility of living a happy and fulfilling life, making empowered choices and creating positive change. To understand and know deeply that you have the ability to influence how you feel in yourself and how you are in the world can be transformative and liberating.

I am a humanistic psychotherapist, accredited and registered with BACP and practising at Spectrum in north London. Spectrum was founded in 1976 and is a centre dedicated to humanistic psychotherapy. The humanistic approach to therapy supports clients in recognizing and developing the inner resources and potential they may be overlooking or not know quite how to harness.

My theoretical frames of reference include gestalt and formative psychology, which means that the focus is on the here and now and what is going on for you right now. What is working for you? What is not working for you? I also draw attention to how emotions are embodied. Your mind does not exist in isolation from your body; they are interconnected. How you think and feel affects how you are physically and vice versa.

In addition to offering talk counselling and psychotherapy, I have a specialist training in expressive arts therapy and can draw on visual arts, drama, poetry, creative writing and sandplay therapy techniques where useful. There is, however, no pressure or necessity to engage with arts approaches if you prefer simply to talk.

I work with individuals, couples and groups, with adults and teens. My fee for individual therapy is £65 and for couples £70.
