About me and my therapy practice

I offer a warm and engaging approach to exploring your thoughts, feelings, experiences and relationships with the aim of understanding yourself better. 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: 1. linking the past to the present to raise awareness of the unconscious; 2. compassion and awareness of your relationship with yourself and others and discovering your inner resources and higher potential; 3. exploring human existence, where you have choice, control and responsibility and where you do not; 4. raising awareness of your body responses to your feelings, thoughts and experiences. 

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.
