From my rooms in Oxford Circus I offer a calm, confidential space for you to explore whatever is concerning you. Being an integrative counsellor means I am trained in a number of therapeutic approaches which I draw upon to find the most appropriate way to work with you as an individual.
We all hold parts of ourselves which can feel elusive, or even deeply painful. By working together in therapy we can explore these shadow sides to soften their hold, breathing life into healthier ways of living and relating.
I offer both short term counselling and longer-term psychotherapy. My intergrative method incorporates psychodynamic, humanistic, existential, body psychotherapy, attachment theory and contemporary relational psychotherapy models.
I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and am a registered MBACP, abiding by their code of ethics in practice. I am a founding partner of The Thought House Partnership.
Through my work as a therapist in a GP practice and as a counsellor in a university I have experience in treating a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, low self-esteem, identity issues, self harm and eating issues.
Before training I co-founded a production company specialising in cause-related concerts. I went on to manage projects at a global maternal health advocacy organisation.
In 2010 I decided to train as a psychotherapist which has been as challenging and exciting as I could ever have hoped. It is a privilege to work with others through their distress and support people towards a healthier, more open and fulfilled way of living.
I am particularly interested in seeing emotional and psychological problems in the context of the body and mind as a whole system and I am currently undertaking a piece of research exploring different impacts of yoga from a psychotherapeutic perspective.
Therapeutic theory is ever developing and I am committed to increasing my knowledge and absorbing new ways of working by keeping up to date with the latest research.
