About me and my therapy practice

I believe in the power for each of us to heal ourselves; we need the right right environment to begin this process and Counselling and psychotherapy can be an important part of this.

I am a fully qualified therapist living and working in east London. I have over twenty years experience of counselling, motivational and coaching experience with a background in both mental health work and the field of substance use.

I also specialise in the area of Trauma and deliver Training on this subject to social services.

I want to encourage you to use the space to explore whatever has brought you here- this might be issues connected to past experiences, even childhood; it might be issues to do with relationships with other people in your life. It could be issues to do with food, body image, sexuality, health or how we are dealing with worry, stress, or feeling stuck.

As a Therapist I offer a safe, empathetic, and non judgemental space for you to explore whatever areas of your life you want to focus on. As we go though this process together this journey and process may change but as long as we are committed to working in an alliance with each other we can flow with these changes.

It will be my job to help you achieve more clarity for yourself and together we find ways to help you achieve a greater sense of freedom and self understanding .
