About me and my therapy practice

My style is warm, open and empathic. I am engaging and direct. My job is to keep you safe and be alongside you helping you resolve what is troubling you.

I am an integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor working with adults.  I work in private practice and in the NHS. I am accredited by the BACP and comply with the BACP and UKCP ethical guidelines. 

My clients tell me that they feel safe and comfortable with me; able to tell me what is troubling them without feeling judged. That I'm not afraid to get into the weeds alongside them to help them gain perspective and heal. That I've helped them face and overcome past traumas as well as practically grapple with the day-to-day issues in front of them. 

Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked around the world for the UN and British Government as a conflict adviser and human rights lawyer, helping people in countries affected by trauma, including war. 

My depth of experience has led me to respect how different we all are and how we suffer pain uniquely. I bring these qualities into my work with you as your therapist, offering you respect and empathy.

I offer private sessions in the Harley Street District and in Islington, both in London, U.K.

While I prefer and encourage in-person sessions, I do offer on-line sessions for international clients or clients just preferring it. I also offer a limited amount of walking therapy sessions in Hampstead Heath in London, please enquire.  

In addition to my traditional therapy practice I am a qualified mediator and facilitator. 

Given my experience of conflict, human rights and justice systems across the world, I reserve a proportion of my practice for persons affected by these issues.  This includes working with clients grappling with civil or criminal legal proceedings, especially divorce.  I also work with persons navigating the impact of conflict or rights abuses/atrocity crime, whether that be primary or vicarious trauma. 

I do not offer legal advice.  

Practice description

As a relational integrative therapist, I undertook extensive training in different psychotherapeutic modalities to allow me to work with you in different ways depending on your needs.  I draw on these multiple models of psychotherapy during our sessions. 

Psychotherapeutic modalities I draw upon:

• I am trauma-informed, including being able to use somatic interventions to ensure you are safe and move at a pace that works for you.

• I draw on humanistic and psychodynamic modalities to maintain trust between us and help you to explore and heal from your past.

• I use existentialism, especially phenomenological enquiry to help you reflect and get to know yourself better.

• I use attachment theory and neuroscience to help you better understand your attachment style and manage your emotions.

• If you are feeling stuck, I can help by experimenting in the here-and-now with Gestalt techniques or use Transactional Analysis to work with different parts of you.

• I use Compassion-Based CBT to help you develop new healthy behaviours, especially to strengthen capacity for self-compassion, resilience, and to empower you.

My first session

Research shows that one of the key determiners in whether therapy will help you is the psychotherapeutic relationship you have with your therapist.  

If you like my profile please contact me.  After making contact if you decide you would like to start therapy with me, I will invite you to a 50-minute assessment session.   

This first session is an opportunity for us to get to know each other better.  I will want to know more about you and your history, about what brings you to therapy now and your goals.  You will want to get sense of how I work, what it is like to be in a room and in conversation with me.  

In this session I will also go over practicalities such as confidentiality and timekeeping.   I will invite you to ask any questions you have about the process of therapy.  

Studies show that just being able to tell your story to a trained therapist in an initial session can be healing. If we choose not to work together, I will want to help you however I can by signposting you to other services.
