Hello and Welcome
I offer a therapeutic service that is confidential providing a safe space for you to explore and reflect on your concerns/challenges.
The main focus of therapy is the work we do collaboratively. A majority of my work is influenced by psychodynamic, psychoanalytic approaches. I work with the conscious and unconscious aspects of feelings and behaviour, exploring emotional thoughts, feelings, memories and dreams. This way of working aids us to understand ourselves and others by making meaningful connections between the past and the present. It also aids us to understand and resolve what may be concerning or disturbing us. The therapeutic process provides you with the security that you no longer have to struggle on by yourself.
What to Expect
Prior to starting any therapy, you and I would have an initial meeting to discuss your requirements. This would allow us to get to know each other better and establish what has brought you to therapy, if I can help you and we can work together.
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist who can help you on your explorative journey. I offer both short-term and long-term therapy depending on what is required. My training is pluralistic in nature and I work with psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, Integrative approaches. I work across these approaches in order to assist you with your individual needs. Although I am available to help with most psychological concerns and issues, I specialise in women’s health and well-being especially fertility, infertility, pregnancy support and pregnancy loss. I also have a particular interest in work-based well-being such as difficulties in the workplace and organisational dynamics. I am committed to and am experienced in working with difference, diversity, identity and cultural issues.
I believe in the importance of continuous professional development and regularly attend seminars/ workshops and training events. In addition to private practice, I also offer my services at an NHS general primary care practice in the City of London.
I hold an M.Sc. in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy at Birkbeck College, University of London and a B.Sc.(Hons) Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the School of Psychology at the University of East London.
