At the heart of my approach to therapy is a belief that the answer to life’s dilemmas is not ‘out there’ but within us. When we start to love and accept ourselves as we are, we can begin to feel more empathy for others, our relationships will improve, and we will find it easier to have the sort of life we want. It is my view that most people could benefit from therapy. It is a space where you can speak your mind without fear of upsetting friends or family. It is a chance to talk over problems with someone who is not going to be judgemental or tell you what to do. It is a place where you can consider your options and make choices.

I believe that every individual has the capacity to live a nourishing life and deserves to feel fulfilled. However because of past or present experiences, as well as learnt behaviour, we can find ourselves stuck with unwanted feelings, desperately wishing that partners, parents, friends or situations were different. In these moments we can feel powerless and unable to speak our truth, so it is important to have an external guide, who can help us navigate through the storm and find our voice. I am committed to helping my clients reach a place of empowerment and well-being, by becoming the best versions of themselves that they can be.

Whatever the reason you are seeking therapy I will offer a safe and non-judgmental space for us to explore the difficulties you might be facing in your life. I bring a relational and empathic approach to the work. In other words, I am simply myself and I welcome whoever you are and whatever you may wish to bring. I believe such a relationship can prove to be the reparative foundation for the change and growth you seek.

You may be stuck with difficult relationships, or work-related issues, or struggling to cope with the loss of someone or even something important to you. You want to move on. It may be difficult to know what you want exactly, but you know that something needs to change.

I believe that we are all influenced by many factors in our lives, both past and present, and that sometimes we need help to understand how these can get in the way of being able to live life fully and with ease. Therapy can provide a dedicated safe and containing space in which to explore thoughts, feelings, beliefs and unhelpful patterns of behaviour. Considering the origin and development of these can be helpful in terms of deciding whether we want to change some of our ways of being so that we can live a happier, more fulfilled life. Equally, sometimes focusing on the here and now may be what is needed.

I offer long term, open ended and short term face to face Psychodynamic counselling/psychotherapy to individuals and couples, who as a result of traumatic life events experienced in both childhood and adulthood have felt they have been unable to cope with or make sense of life. I provide therapy for individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder, Anxiety, PTSD. Individuals who are genuinely interested in exploring themselves and are looking for self knowledge and awareness as to why they behave the way they do, as well as trying to understand and change "negative" behaviours, will benefit most from the therapy that I offer.

I'm a warm and down-to-earth psychotherapist, currently working both online and in-person in Dalston, London E8. I work weekly with adults on a 1-to-1 basis. I've worked with people experiencing anxiety, depression, low self-worth, relationship difficulties, loneliness & isolation, bereavement, conflicts at work or home, traumatic experiences & finding meaning, amongst many other issues. You may have a more vague sense of dissatisfaction and you don't need to be in crisis to find counselling useful; attending regularly can also be seen as an act of generous self-care, bringing greater insight, perspective & ease.

My clients include adults, teens and children. I work integratively, combining ideas from psychodynamic, humanistic and behavioral theories. I see each client as an individual with her unique needs and I create a bespoke treatment to help with the specific issues. This all happens in a non-judgemental, safe and caring environment where the client gradually feels comfortable to open up and share her life experience. Alongside talking therapy I also use arts especially with younger clients. We look beneath the surface of difficult emotions to see what is at the core of the problem to help the client to make sense of her story.

I provide a warm and confidential space to support you in finding your own way. Often, to give voice to what's troubling you offers relief. We'll also discover and affirm your talents, achievements and strengths, as we travel the road to growth and evolution. I don't take the 'blank screen' approach, meaning I don't stare at you in silence. If I don't share my thoughts with you, the therapy is only taking place in my head. I value you for the unique individual you are. This kind of environment can be rare to find, and powerful to experience. Clients have said that they feel supported by me, and that they've gained fresh insights.

You might be feeling anxious or low. Life events such as a loss or bereavement or any kind of very troubling experiences such as relationship or work problems may be causing you distress. Issues from your past may be causing you difficulty today or, you may simply have a more general feeling of not being as content with your life as you would wish to be but are unsure of the reasons why. Counselling can help you to explore and understand what is going on for you and how your life experiences may have affected you and help you find more satisfying ways of living. Counselling helps thousands of people in this way.

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.
