About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative child, adolescent & young adult psychotherapist offering weekly face-to-face and online sessions.

Since 2012 I have worked with schools in Peckham, Brixton, Bermondsey and Hackney; providing therapy to students aged 5 – 18.

I now specialise in work with older adolescents/young adults, aged 15-25, supporting them as they make their transition into adulthood.

My approach is primarily psychodynamic. This means allowing the client to bring whatever content they wish to share, whilst I try to respond to the underlying anxieties and conflicts being expressed. I integrate psychodynamic, person-centred, attachment and mentalization theory to inform the work, enabling connections to be made with the client's past and present state of mind.

Therapy can provide a safe and confidential space, within which a young person can think and gradually come to understand their own inner world. Consistent weekly sessions create a sense of continuity; of being held; of having parameters within which to build trust, explore relationships and communicate.

Practice description

My practice is based in East Dulwich. 

If you are a young person seeking help, please include your age and whatever details you wish to include about your current circumstances.  

If you are the parent(s) of a teenager and wish to make an inquiry on their behalf, please include their first name, age and a brief account of why you are seeking help.

To get in touch, either use the BACP contact form or email me directly:

I will do my best to get back to you within 24 hours. 

My first session

If you are a parent inquiring on behalf of your teenager, we would begin by arranging an initial phone call to discuss your concerns in more detail. If we then decide to proceed, I would invite your teenager to attend an initial assessment session on their own. 

If you are a teenager or young adult looking for support, I would be happy to provide a free 30 minute online (or telephone) consultation with you. 

Please see my website for more details. (website currently offline while being updated)
