About me and my therapy practice

Hi. I am an integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor working privately from Shoreditch E1 and online.

As I witness my clients transform, I am often reminded of the ancient Japanese art of mending pottery with gold. In order to survive emotional pain, loss, and trauma, we fragment parts of ourselves, that we can disown, or see as flawed, broken or wrong. The process of therapy is reclaiming these parts, seeing their pain, acknowledging their wisdom. We cultivate self-compassion and understanding, which results in more harmonious and satisfying relationships, helps us get unstuck, opens up space to be creative in how we see the world and achieve our goals.A bit about me. 

I trained at the Minster Centre in London, one of the most rigorous and respected psychotherapy courses in the UK. In my practice, I work with a variety of issues, both long and short term. I have experience working with relationship problems, family issues, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, depression, suicidal thoughts, loss and bereavement.

I worked at a London charity for several years, where I received specialised training in counselling women and men going through difficulties with infertility, birth trauma, pregnancy loss, IVF, GH. 

Practice description

The most important thing for me as a therapist is to be accepting, gentle and empathetic, to create a space for you to be heard and seen, where you can explore, feel, think, relate.

As we work together, I will draw from a wide range of psychotherapeutic approaches. This allows me the flexibility to tailor the theory to you and whatever has brought you to therapy.

Our bodies are key to unresolved feelings, which is why we will be paying attention to your bodily sensations, while using mindfulness and meditation techniques. We will explore the past, focussing on how it may manifest unhelpfully in the present. And as humans are, by nature, social we will be looking at the larger societal context, while keeping in mind the unique matrix of diversity that makes you, you.

What I can help with

Anxiety, Bereavement, Child related issues, Cultural issues, Depression, Identity issues, Infertility, Loss, Post-traumatic stress, Pregnancy related issues, Relationships, Self esteem, Sex-related issues, Trauma, Women's issues

About me and my therapy practice

Hello there. I am an integrative therapist with special interest in infertility and perinatal mental health.

I worked at the London charity CPCP for three years, where I received specialised training in counselling women and men going through difficulties with infertility, secondary infertility, IVF, pregnancy loss, birth trauma, pregnancy after stillbirth, ectopic pregnancy hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) and post natal depression.

There is a culture of silence when it comes to these issues, which is why I am passionate about supporting clients as they often struggle alone at a time when they feel extremely vulnerable.

Practice description

I work both short and long term. Sometimes clients want the space to tell and process their stories and 10 sessions are enough. Sometimes there are deeper issues at play, which require more time and attention. 

I trained at the Minster Centre in London, one of the most rigorous and respected psychotherapy courses in the UK. I work integratively, which means that I draw from a wide range of psychotherapeutic approaches - psychodynamic, existential, body psychotherapy, mindfulness, trauma theory. This allows me the flexibility to tailor my approach to you and your issues and go to a greater depth and longer term therapy if necessary.

What is most important for me, when I work with these issues, is to be gentle, accepting and empathetic, and create space for you to voice whatever you are holding.
