About me and my therapy practice

I am a Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor working with adults and young people of all backgrounds - mainly here in East London, but also online. If you find yourself stuck, having a difficult time, or simply unclear about anything in your life, I believe I can support you in taking the next steps forward.

Practice description

My practice is grounded in the here-and-now: what is it like talking about difficult subjects in this moment, what does this bring up? In this way we can often approach the essence of your own process and work on that together. This interpersonal and existential approach mainly leverages my training in person-centred and gestalt modalities. However, I integrate a range of clinical thinking into my work, and encourage the use of the arts or any form of creative expression in therapy.

It is my belief and experience that the quality of our working relationship greatly influences how much you are able to get out of therapy. I have seen clients make great strides in their life when we have been able to find out exactly how to best support them. My hope is to be able to do that with you.

My work is trauma-informed and interpersonally-oriented, which means I strive to work at a pace that suits you, and remain sensitive to the nature of our encounter and conversation. I will be curious about your whole person; your specific lived experience and how you find meaning within your everyday world.
