About me and my therapy practice
I am a BACP registered integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, practicing in Clapham, Battersea and Chelsea as well as online. I have a flexible, sensitive, relational approach. Over the course of our sessions, I will work very much in collaboration with you to share my observations of your difficulties and formulate a treatment plan.
I focus on your presenting difficulties in the context of your early relationships and environment, helping you to create links between past and present to bring about a deeper and more cohesive understanding of yourself.
I support and encourage ways of contacting your own inner experience, the embodied felt sense of what it means to be you whilst building a robust therapeutic relationship together. Engaging in therapy can help you reconnect with a sense of aliveness, contentment and find more creative ways of participating in the world.
The core of my practice rests in relational psychoanalytic thought and humanistic-existential philosophy with its emphasis on the joy, pain and complexity of simply being human.
I offer both short-term work (up to 12 sessions) with specifically agreed goals as well as long-term (open-ended) for those who would like an in-depth exploration of their problems and a more stable change in their sense of self.
Training, Qualifications and Experience
I trained as an integrative psychotherapist with Regent’s University London, a highly respected and innovative therapeutic community.
I have worked in both private and NHS sector for a number of years with adults and young people supporting a diverse range of clients from many differing backgrounds, sexual orientations and cultures suffering from a wide range of presenting problems.
My previous career in the corporate world gave me much insight into the high levels of stress, the challenges and expectations that many people experience in their daily working lives, the loss of balance between public and private. This in turn can have a detrimental effect on our relationships, state of mind and on our health in general.
