About me and my therapy practice

I'm trained as an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, which means that I integrate different theoretical approaches, including mainly person centred and psychodynamic approaches. In practice this means that I focus on what is relevant in the here and now (person-centred) whilst also looking at how family relationships and early life experiences impact and influence the present issue (psychodynamic). Although, this is my main approach I’ve been trained in a wide range of different theoretical frameworks such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mentalization Based Treatment (MBT) and working with trauma.

Practice description


I strive to provide a safe, nourishing and empathetic environment that enables my clients to get in touch with their true selves and find the best version of themselves within. In the counselling room, the therapeutic work is collaborative and cooperative, and the therapeutic relationship is the vehicle for the clients’ self-discovery journey.

In my work as a counsellor, I’m experienced in working with self-esteem issues, anxiety, depression, early childhood trauma and its impact on adult life, and a whole wide range of emotional problems that arise during a person’s lifespan, such as bereavement, finding purpose and meaning in a new season of life.

Previously and additionally to my therapeutic work, I worked with young adolescents as Head of Pastoral Care in a secondary school in West London, which has granted me a lot of patience, resilience and most of all creativity and out of the box thinking! I’m always open to think about and create new ways to meaningfully attain therapeutic outcomes with my clients.

I am registered member of the BACP and have an MSc in Health Psychology.
