I help people create rewarding and fulfilling lives in which they feel able to reach their goals and be their true selves. I believe that we are all trying to build better lives for ourselves, but due to the lasting impact of past experiences, the unhelpful habits we develop over time, and the fear, self-judgement and self-criticism that we often carry round with ourselves, we can end up feeling stuck and finding it difficult to move forward.

The one constant in life is change. Life, unavoidably, involves loss. Pandemic has affected many of our core relationships. Losses of human life, jobs, health, homes, identities and connections resulting from the pandemic have left many people with grief. Addressing this emotion can be a complex process that varies from person to person. Loss is not just about death. It can refer to a wide range of changes or life events, including divorce, breakup or immigration. The pandemic has caused spikes in break-ups and divorces. Old wounds caused by immigration with the uncertainty of tomorrow may make you question your ability to succeed.

Choosing a therapist can seem overwhelming so I am happy to arrange a 10 minute phone chat, free of charge, so that we can decide whether we will work well together before making an appointment for our first session. Clients bring a range of challenges. These are sometimes linked to emotional injuries from the past that need gentle, careful attention and exploration, while other clients need to focus on difficulties in their adult relationships, either at work or at home.

Fed up of friends or family not listening to you, butting in and giving their personal advice? Wouldn’t it be good to talk to someone who could look at your life from an outside perspective but who has empathy, experience & training and who always stands by you and with you, trying to unravel what works for you? The solution is to find a therapist you can connect with, who helps you to find and value your true self and not the person that others or yourself expect you to be. Please feel free to call/text me, to discuss how I can help you and if you wish, you can book a session where we can figure out what is best for you.

Sometimes people believe that their issue is not "worthy" of receiving the therapist's attention, but this is never the case. I am here to offer you a safe, calm, confidential, non-judgmental space, and listen to whatever you want to bring into therapy, no matter how serious or benign you might be finding it. Certain issues that you might want to address in therapy include: anxiety, depression, chronic illness and pain, family and/or relationship issues, academic and/or work pressures and stress, as well as cultural and identity issues.

I am a transactional analysis psychotherapist and counsellor. I always appreciate that it takes courage to seek support and the first step can seem daunting. Therapy can help to organise your thoughts and feelings and free you from repeated patterns of behaviour that prevent you from leading a happier and more fulfilling life. You can learn to understand why those patterns are there and how to change them, so that they no longer control what you are trying to achieve for yourself. Following the pandemic, I work online and face to face (depending on availability of space). The virtual setting is calm, confidential and safe.

Well done! you have taken the hardest step and acknowledged that things aren't ok, this is where the healing begins. I am a warm and effective Therapist, who works on the basis that the problems we are struggling with can very often be traced back to our past relationships and experiences. I will gently yet firmly work alongside you to explore the origins of your emotional difficulties and help you change unhealthy patterns of relating. This should lead to real relief from the painful and uncomfortable thoughts and feelings you are currently experiencing.

None of us are immune to the experience life throws at us and sometimes we can develop difficulties with depression, anxiety or both. This often affects how we think, feel and act, falling into negative cycles that can maintain problems. I specialise in using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to help you identify and break these down so you can move forward positively in your life. Where helpful, I integrate other psychological approaches which sit well with CBT, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy, to tailor a course of therapy which will support you best.

Maintaining your mental health is vital to living a happy and healthy life. Mental health is more than just the absence of mental disorders. It is an integral part of health; so much so that there is no health without mental health. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps the way you feel to improve what you think and what you do. By being able to approach situations in a more balanced way, you will hopefully be more effective in solving your problems and feel more in control of your life.

My great passion in my job is bringing healing to people who have been through a traumatic/stressful experience, helping them to find a healthy perception of themselves. The psychotherapeutic relationship is a safe and creative space that enables you to explore yourself and your relationships with other people, and various other aspects of your life without feeling judged. Psychotherapy helps you to better understand your past experiences, but it doesn't always have to be focused on your past. It often explores how you feel, here-and-now, and the ways you can bring more vitality, creativity and happiness into your life.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in London are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in London then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in London, or Child Psychologists in London.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like London psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in London specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
