About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified and BACP-accredited counsellor willing to help you explore any problems you are facing in your life in a safe and confidential setting. I seek to aid clients in coming to a better understanding of themselves so that they can bring about long-lasting improvements to their relationships with other people and to their own well-being. I have a respectful, empathic and accepting attitude towards my clients whatever their background and life-history.
I follow a relational approach that integrates elements from the psychodynamic, person-centred and transpersonal traditions within counselling. I am particularly interested in exploring the influence of childhood and other past experiences on a client's current difficulties and in working with the unconscious.
I am doing further training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy in order to be able to work with clients several times a week and for longer periods. I am interested in strands of psychoanalytic thinking that are critical of classical psychoanalysis and of the discipline's anti-feminist stance and its history of oppressing sexual minorities.
I see clients at my private practice in Tottenham. I have worked as a counsellor for a charity that supports adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, as well as for a mental health charity in East London, a bereavement service in North London and a GP surgery in Putney.
I am experienced in working with adults dealing with bereavement, discrimination, depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, shame, addictions, traumatic loss, domestic abuse, relationship problems, self-injury, HIV, ADHD, anger management, LGBT issues and questions about their sexuality.
