About me and my therapy practice

I am a highly experienced counsellor and psychotherapist offering a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space in which to help you understand your emotional struggles and the thoughts and feelings that drive you.

I am psychodynamically trained which means I am able to observe how you relate to me, providing me with an understanding of how you might relate to others in your life. My role is then to reflect on your behaviour, whilst working with you to help recognise how your own life experiences might be affecting your current situation, and together we explore the patterns of thoughts which keep you from moving past your fears, anxieties and depressive feelings.

My experience:

I work extensively with clients with varying degrees of mental health concerns and I specialise in addictions, ADHD, anger, anxiety/depression, and loss/bereavement.

I also have a particular interest in working with culturally diverse clients as well as sexually diversity.

Currently I work time part as a Counsellor at a London University where I see young adults experiencing a variety of emotional concerns. I have also worked for several years with individuals at Mind in Camden from the Phoenix Wellbeing and Recovery Service, a mental health service set up for adults experiencing distress through hearing voices, visions, unusual beliefs, paranoia, hopelessness and extremes of depressive moods as well as conditions including schizophrenia and personality disorders.
