About me and my therapy practice

A safe place to talk and confidentiality are the foundation of my practice. My commitment as an experienced psychotherapist is to support you in the process of exploring your feelings and working through difficulties, relationships and changes in a respectful and thoughtful way. I have a long experience of many years working with a diverse range of issues and people from different cultures, ethnicities, faiths, sexual orientation and from different professional and educational backgrounds. These years of practice working with private clients, in the voluntary sector and as a therapist in different organisations in the UK and abroad, allowed me to acquaint myself with people who had made changes in their lives, moved countries and struggled with integration, adaptation and relationships.

I apply reduced rate for student and people on low income.

I qualified as a psychodynamic psychotherapist at WPF Therapy and hold MA in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy - Theory and Practice from Roehampton University. I specialise in supporting people who have suffered anxiety, separation, bereavement, loss or trauma - in particular post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
