I am a warm, experienced and straightforward therapist, registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and a member of the UK Council of Psychotherapists (UKCP).
Since 2010, I have worked successfully with people of various ethnicities, backgrounds, sexual identities and ages to address issues such as depression, anxiety, relationships, family, cultural issues, work, bereavement, loss, trauma, sexuality, identity, self-esteem and confidence amongst many others.
My experience spans work in the NHS as a psychotherapist, a bereavement counsellor with CCIWBS, a therapist with the Minster Centre Psychotherapy and Counselling Service, and as a Group Facilitator with Foundations UK, helping people address problematic eating behaviour.
I usually see people at the same time, location and day on a weekly basis, for both short-term (12-26 sessions), or for more open-ended, longer term therapy.
Weekly sessions provide the safety and consistency required for effective therapy and lasting results. It helps to promote an environment in which you can begin to drop the mask and dare to reveal and heal your true and whole self. Sometimes painful and uncomfortable feelings arise as a result, but this type of continuity means they can be experienced safely and worked through in our sessions. It also allows for the optimal amount of processing and integration you do in between sessions.
I am based in Shoreditch, Central London EC2, conveniently located near Old Street, Angel, Liverpool Street and the City of London. I also conduct sessions via Skype.
