About me and my therapy practiceI am currently offering online video link counselling sessions via Zoom and can be flexible on session times. I am also doing some face-to-face work and am fully vaccinated for COVID-19. The forced isolation we have all experienced is creating heightened levels of anxiety for many people. If you are struggling with your mental health and need someone to talk to, please get in touch.
I use a psychodynamic approach, which is about exploring how you interact with people and how your patterns of behaviour have developed in response to your life experiences and key relationships. You may have a specific aim for the therapy but beyond this, the purpose for me is to try to help you understand yourself better and to like yourself better. Being more aware of aspects of yourself or your behaviour that you don't like will allow you to reflect on how or why this might be the case and can lead to change or acceptance. As well, negative impressions of oneself are often based on the behaviour and responses of the adults around you when you were a child and it can be helpful to revisit and reframe these. For example, depression can sometimes be about unconscious deep-rooted feelings of anger or frustration that were originally a response to someone else and couldn't be expressed outwardly. Over time, these strong feelings can turn inwards on oneself.
I hold a Masters Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy (with Distinction) from Birkbeck College, University of London, gained after 3 years of professionally accredited training. I have worked for several years as a Student Counsellor at two top London universities, where I saw a wide range of people and problems. More recently, I ran a counselling service in a Drama School. I have also worked in the NHS at a specialist psychotherapy service. I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
