About me and my therapy practice

My psychotherapeutic approach is informed by my formative training in existential psychotherapy and my ongoing Zen Buddhist practice; both see life as inherently relational and dynamic. Both recognise impermanence, change, uncertainty, suffering and anxiety to be an inevitable part of our every day lives. The challenge of life is to confront and find meaning within these existential givens, as opposed to avoiding or denying them. Psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to do this. I invite clients to pay close attention to their experiences; we work collaboratively in clarifying and reflecting upon their situations in order to gain deeper insight and awareness into how they might choose to live with greater meaning and connection to themselves, to others and to the environment.

Practice description

In an age where the prevalent therapeutic focus lies within a medical model of symptoms, diagnostic categories and panacea, I consider existential psychotherapy to offer a valuable therapeutic alternative - one which does not pathologise difficult experiences or impose normative assumptions of what good ‘mental health’ should look like, but instead tries to understand the messages these experiences might be conveying. We work together patiently, sometimes repetitiously, in bringing painful, stuck patterns of behaviour into awareness. This practice of therapeutic inquiry can take time, commitment and is inevitably challenging. We include not only examining individual experiences, but situating these within the familial and social structures we are a part of, broadening our inquiry to include an understanding how social, cultural and political contexts may also be contributing to how particular narratives we might hold about ourselves and about others may have become normalized or sedimented. We may explore the impact of oppressive experiences. Psychotherapy is an opportunity to reflect upon the factors that construct our subjectivity and lead us to inhabit our lives in particular ways, enabling a (re)assessment of how these factors might both restrict and free us. It is through this ongoing practice of reflexivity that we can re-animate growth and cultivate a deeper connection to this practice life.

I work with individuals and couples / throuples. As well as working in person and online, I also work with clients in outdoor spaces, including the natural world within the therapeutic relationship.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer therapeutic supervision to individuals and groups for both therapists in training and qualified practitioners. My supervisory approach is rooted in phenomenological and feminist thinking and aims to support supervisees' develop and enrich their therapeutic practice and philosophy through a consideration of differing perspectives, alongside a deepening accountability of their own. 


I hold a Diploma in Integrative Supervision for Individuals and Groups and alongside working privately, also work at The Minster Centre, London as both a supervisor for trainees and as an EDI (Equality, Diversity and Intersectionality) supervisor for colleagues. In addition to meeting in person, I also offer supervision sessions by Zoom, outdoors. 

Practice description

As a supervisor, I prefer to work with psychotherapists and counsellors who have, or wish to develop, a critical, creative and socially engaged therapeutic practice and who are interested in exploring the parameters of what therapeutic practice can and might be. In terms of my own therapeutic interests and practice, as a supervisor I am better suited to practitioners who are do not work exclusively in private practice, but within community also, both inside and outside of the therapy room. For this reason, I welcome inquiries from not only therapists but also from people working in community who wish to work not necessarily on an individual basis but collectively, in order to develop a generative and supportive supervisory practice that is rooted in collective ethics and solidarity work.

Feminist Therapy Supervision Group

This online monthly supervision group is for psychotherapists and counsellors who wish to explore feminist contributions to, and critiques of, psychotherapeutic practice. Each session, discussion on a selected feminist text is our starting point for exploring the relationship between feminist praxis and theory and our therapeutic work with clients.

This group is suitable for practising psychotherapists and counsellors – at any stage of their practice - who wish to explore the psychosocial dimensions of their therapeutic work, considering the interstices between the personal and political and the individual and society from varied feminist perspectives.

For more information and to express interest in the group, contact me via email.

My first session

I offer a free thirty minute meeting, in person or online, to discuss your supervisory interests and needs to enable us to make a shared decision on whether we wish to work together.
