You are welcome here.

 

The first step looks like this: once you’ve made contact with me, we will decide together a day and time to meet. Then we sit in a room together for fifty minutes, where you can experience a taste of what therapy feels like with me. Here you’ll be able to ask questions, express whatever you’re feeling and assess how comfortable you feel in my presence. There is absolutely no obligation to meet again after this. Therapy will always be guided by you; you will let me know when you’d like to begin and when you feel ready to end. You are the director of your journey.
With offices in Liverpool Street and North London, I will commit myself to you, if you will commit to yourself.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or if you wish to book an appointment.
I look forward to connecting with you.

The word of our head councillor

Training

I completed my Doctorate in Psychotherapeutic and Counselling Psychology at the University of Surrey and I’ve been trained in various models of therapy including: Person-Centered, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness. A benefit of being trained in various therapeutic models is that I am able to tailor a unique therapy for every individual. Having an array of therapeutic tools to choose from means that through collaboration, a client and I are able to create something very unique together, picking and choosing the aspects that fit the situation best.

Experience

My experience includes working within the NHS, Universities, charities and private practice. In addition to this, I have also been a part of specialist services providing support for those suffering with addictions and chronic pain. The types of issues I’ve worked with therapeutically are varied and include but are not limited to: depression, anxiety, trauma, addictions, relational issues, psychological disorders, as well as those seeking insight and personal development. I provide therapy for individuals and couples both on a short-term and long-term basis. In addition to this, I lecture in psychology to Undergraduates and Doctoral students.

My way of working

My way of working therapeutically values the uniqueness of every individual and aims to provide a non-judgmental and safe space where clients can feel free to express themselves. This therapeutic space can take many forms. For example, if words feel difficult or insufficient, creative work can be utilized, such as drawing, using role-play or even imagery exercises. Whatever form therapy takes, it’s always tailored through collaboration with the individual and based on their personal needs at the time.

The way I work with clients aims to promote a supportive environment and above all else, what I can offer and what I can promise you is that I will be human, just like you.
