About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified individual and couple psychotherapist, offering both short term and long term psychotherapy in Shoreditch. I have trained at Tavistock Relationships, a well-reputed institute for psychotherapy and relationship counselling and have years of experience working with a diverse range of clients.

Starting therapy can be an exciting yet daunting process. You may have a lot of questions or feel trepidation at the idea of embarking on it. What I hope to provide you with is a safe, empathetic and non-judgemental space where we can begin to explore these anxieties and work towards reducing conflict, fostering curiosity and building self-awareness. I specialise in the psychodynamic model, with the focus on making sense of past experiences and understanding its effect on the present.

The below are some of the areas that I work with: Difficulty Building Lasting Relationships, Breakdown of Communication, Anxiety, Depression, Grief & Loss, Lack of Intimacy, Pre Marital Counselling, Infertility & Trouble Conceiving, Parenting Difficulties, Affairs & Betrayals, Life Transitions, Separation & Divorce

I also have experience working with couples and individuals from different ethnic communities and welcome clients from cross-cultural, mixed race and immigrant backgrounds. 

Practice description

My practice is located in Shoreditch and is easily accessible from Shoreditch High street station or Liverpool Street station. There are hand sanitisers available and my therapy room is suitable for socially distanced in person sessions. 

My first session

The first step of the process is an initial   consultation during which we will explore your present situation, past experiences and your family history. This may be done over 1 or 2 sessions depending on material. After this, we discuss the next steps including the fit between us and whether to proceed together, and the suitability of either short term or long term open ended work. We will also go over any questions or concerns you may have about the therapeutic process or my practice.
