About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and currently in advanced training to become a Certified Transactional Analyst with an MSc in psychotherapy. I offer short-term and long-term counselling and psychotherapy for individuals, groups and couples in Kensington, south west London, and online via Zoom.

As a Relational therapist, I take the view that from infancy up to the here-and-now our minds develop through our relationships with others and within the sociocultural context of our lives. I believe we are all doing the best we can in the circumstances that we are in, but sometimes difficulties and traumas can make life feel unmanageable or can manifest in a multitude of emotional and physical symptoms.

I am especially interested in and committed to working with prenatal and postnatal mental health. 

Practice description

Working relationally means taking a theoretical and philosophical perspective that places emphasis on understanding a person’s experience of life within their social context. I will aim to explore with you your experience of the here-and-now in order to help you make meaning of your experience of life and to bring awareness to how you negotiate relationships.  

I have trained as a Transactional Analyst and I draw on theories from different schools of thought, including interpersonal, object relations, self-psychology, intersubjective theory and attachment theories. I also utilise current research in neuroscience, attachment and affect regulation.

A relational approach accommodates for issues of identity, attachment, neurodiversity, politics and other differences that may or may not be visible or consciously felt. My clinic is LGBTQIA+, kink and sex-worker positive and I take an active stance in thinking about difference and discrimination.

I have worked with the NHS, within the prison system, and in the charity sector. I have worked extensively with women experiencing prenatal and postnatal mental distress.
