About me and my therapy practice

I offer a warm and engaging approach to exploring what's troubling you. We will work to find out what you need to live a more fulfilling life. 

I am a multi-cultural, integrative relational psychotherapist. My approach combines psychodynamic, humanistic, existentialism and body awareness. This includes raising awareness of your thoughts, feelings and actions with compassion. We will explore your relationship with yourself and with others and your needs, choices and inner resources. My aim is for you to understand yourself better by looking at your past and present experiences and beliefs in order to feel empowered to live the life that you want. 

In addition to talking, I welcome creative expressions, such as drawing, writing or working with the imagination.

I have experience working with a wide range of clients in EAPs and academic institutions. I see clients privately with a special interest in working with diversity/difference, cultural displacement and identity. I often work with clients who feel multi-cultural tensions in their life and with TCKs.

I offer online video sessions for clients who live internationally or move around frequently. 

If you feel you want a confidential space to explore difficult aspects of your life or need support from an objective perspective, therapy could be a great place to start. Contact me if you're interested in how I can support you and we can meet for an initial session to decide if we would like to work together. I am a BACP registered member and adhere to their code of ethics.
