About me and my therapy practice
Coming to therapy, especially for the first time, can feel daunting. I aim to provide a space for all thoughts and feelings to be explored freely, safely, and without judgement. I'm here to offer you a supportive environment where you can get to know yourself deeply.
Everyone goes through difficult times in life, but sometimes our familiar ways of coping become less effective and we can find ourselves stuck in a rut, feeling, thinking, and acting in ways that have become unmanageable or overwhelming. Therapy can be helpful for exploring why old patterns aren't serving us anymore and it can help us develop new ways to carry ourselves forward.
I'm an integrative relational therapist which means I draw on several approaches in my work and I'm interested in all aspects of relationship. I can help you explore childhood roots and family history, alongside relationships in your life currently. I encourage reflection on the relationship you have with yourself, and the one between us. I'm interested in the relationship you have with the world around you, where you find yourself culturally and how you feel about your place in the world.
I work from a trauma-informed perspective which means that therapy will be steadily paced. I'm always curious and mindful about how the things we explore in sessions feel in the here-and-now for you. I endeavour to facilitate an environment where sameness and difference can be safely explored, and it is my intention to work from an anti-discriminatory position.
I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from The Minster Centre in London, one of Europe’s leading psychotherapy training institutes, and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I have been working with clients since 2018, in low-cost and charity settings, as well as in private practice.
My first session
Our first session will be a mutual assessment during which I will ask some direct questions about what brings you to therapy and your history, discuss your goals, and help us both consider if we're a good fit.
Assessments are charged at the usual session rate.
