About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working in London for the last ten years. Talking to a therapist can make sense of painful events and feelings, helping you to heal, move on and fulfil your potential. I offer a secure, confidential, non-judgemental space where you can explore your experiences at your own pace. I am currently seeing clients online via Zoom or FaceTime but hope to restart face to face appointments as soon as possible.

Often our past informs our present and determines our feelings about the future. Sometimes it can prevent us from being truly ourselves. I work with you to explore your experiences in order to better understand who you are and what you might become, to find meaning and a greater sense of purpose in life. This in turn can help to create better relationships with partners, colleagues and family and to stop repeating negative thoughts, behaviour and relationships. Whether you are struggling with a traumatic life event or a more general feeling of sadness and a lack of purpose, therapy can help.

I trained in humanistic, existential and psychodynamic approaches to psychotherapy, and I like to draw on whatever seems most appropriate in each individual case. But central to my practice is creating a strong relationship with my client.

I generally see you for fifty minutes, once a week. You can have either short term counselling, or longer term open-ended psychotherapy.

To start with I offer an initial non-obligatory consultation which gives us the opportunity to meet, talk through the process, and see if I can help.
