About me and my therapy practice

I am currently unable to accept new clients.

I am a psychotherapist and counsellor working in Lower Clapton, Hackney, E5. I am BACP and UKCP registered, and in regular supervision.

My approach is founded on the principle that each of us has inherent potential to live a rich and fulfilling life. Buried complex feelings and distorted or defensive ways of thinking and behaving can block or limit this potential, and even our sense of who we are. This can lead to many distressing symptoms such as depression and anxiety, and prevent us from living as fully as we would like.

You may feel stuck in cycles of compulsive or sabotaging behaviour. Perhaps you feel misunderstood, that something is missing or that there is something wrong with you. It can be hard to believe that things could be different.

I will help you to identify the unconscious processes that perpetuate your difficulties. Learning how we relate to ourselves and others leads to increased freedom and choice, and in turn a renewed sense of purpose, vitality and connection to life, and more satisfying relationships.

I also work with what you want from life. Exploring your values and what is important to you can bring confidence and growth.

I work with dreams, and also writing, art and other forms of self-expression, if this is helpful to you.

The initial session will be a chance to talk about what you're looking to get out of therapy, and whether it feels right to work together.

I welcome any questions you may have.
