About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified, experienced psychotherapist based in North West London. I work with adult individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space so that you feel supported to explore your concerns are better equipped to take steps that will enhance the quality of your life. 

I work with people who suffer from depression, anxiety, low-self esteem or stress; those who have just received a diagnosis or are living with a long term health condition or disability; those who are bereaved, facing relationship or work difficulties; those who are trying to process a traumatic past or are experiencing a crisis of identity or meaning in their lives. I have particular experience working with patients with a cancer diagnosis or whose lives have been impacted by cancer in other ways.

As an integrative practitioner trained across a range of therapeutic modalities, I can adapt to my clients needs and offer more exploratory, supportive or practical approaches to our work as required. I am particularly influenced by attachment theory and relational psychoanalysis. I believe that our minds and sense of self are built primarily through relations with others and that the relational interactions that we have throughout our lives, including the therapeutic relationship, provide us with new perspectives on ourselves as well as opportunities for growth and transformation. 

I offer initial 'trial' sessions and more details can be found on my website:
