About me and my therapy practice

I work with adults in individual therapy, both long-term and shorter-term. I have experience of a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, life changes, OCD, eating disorders, sexuality, relationships, identity, bereavement, regret and loss. I offer sessions online (via Skype, VSee or FaceTime) or over the phone, offering flexibility and support in the current situation. My practice is based in three central London locations in Holborn, Barbican and Islington.  

I have a lifelong love of music and a special interest in working with performance anxiety. I also run wellbeing workshops and mindfulness groups.

My approach: Existential therapy is a practical and relational approach. Therapy is a unique space to step away from the demands of everyday life and to talk freely about what is troubling you without pressure or judgement. I will bring an empathic and insightful approach to help you make sense your situation, and together we will look at the possibilities and choices available to you. Working together, we will identify what is meaningful to you, and help you to find a greater sense of freedom and authenticity.

What's the next step? You can get in touch with me via phone or email if you would like more information or to arrange an initial session. We would then meet for an initial 50 minute session, with no obligation to continue. This meeting is an opportunity for you to find out whether my approach suits you, and for me to find out more about you and your hopes and expectations of therapy. If we then decide to work together we would meet for a 50 minute session at a regular time each week.
