We all face moments in life which can be challenging, where we can find ourselves feeling out of control, struggling to cope and in emotional pain. At the heart of my practice, I prioritise building a warm, trusting and non-judgemental relationship as a strong foundation for you to feel safe to explore in-depth your most difficult thoughts, feelings and experiences. Working together, I believe therapy can help increase your self-awareness, which can bring about new possibilities and real change in your life. Therapy can also help you develop healthier strategies to cope with new challenges and past experiences.

I completed my doctorate in clinical psychology at the University of Hertfordshire and currently work in a specialist NHS service for people with learning disabilities. I also have a special interest in working with people with psychosis and unusual experiences and much of my pre-training experience was in this area.

If you are reading this, I sense you are seeking someone to discuss an issue you may have with alcohol or substance misuse and other compulsive behaviours and/or struggling with anxiety and depression, which may or may not be connected to the compulsive behaviours. These problems may also impact your various relationships, which can cause you to feel guilty. The thoughts, feelings, and emotions one is left with can make dealing with daily life difficult. Therapy begins to help you make sense of and understand your why of it all.

Life disturbances can silence us; silence us into disbelief, fear, isolation and suffering. You need not suffer alone in silence. My experience upholding clients with various personal and professional challenges has enabled them to live healthier, more balanced, authentic lives that meet their need. I have uplifted clients troubled with identity and confidence issues. I have supported clients tormented from abuse, grief and trauma. I have helped clients struggling with depression, anxiety and stress. I have facilitated workshops to encourage self-discovery and self-transformation. I volunteered in primary schools with Place2Be

At The Bodart Practice we know that life can be fast-paced, stressful and overwhelming, leaving you without much time or energy for focusing on building the life you had imagined for yourself. As psychologists and holistic therapists, we recognised that the keys to creating fulfilment required helping people connect with all aspects of their life, not only their mental health. We believe that every person deserves to find the clarity and direction they need to understand their past, live more fully in the present, and take steps to build the future they want.

We get a sense of ourselves in the context of our relationships in childhood, and as we find our way in life, we can get trapped in dysfunctional patterns. The aim is to find a compassionate inner connection that would free us from these patterns in therapy. Openness and commitment are important qualities in making the most out of it. The process will get challenging from time to time, as life does as well. The important thing here is to build a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship that would enable us to work through these challenges in a relational way as we transform ourselves and our lives based on our desires.

You might be looking for a counsellor or therapist but not know how to go about it. You might be struggling with difficult feelings, a painful loss, relationship issues or unhelpful behaviour patterns and need some support understanding what is going on for you. Clients who have difficulty navigating the world typically have not had sufficient recognition from important figures which is the first step towards experiencing change & feeling better. Underlying my training and work is a commitment to diversity and inclusion and I encourage an environment where my clients can be themselves.

I believe the key to successful therapy is the relationship between client and therapist. I work in a warm, empathetic and non-judgemental way, creating a safe and confidential space for you to explore emotional difficulty. You may be feeling distressed, anxious, low, isolated, lost, out of control or just have the feeling you’re not living life how you want to. If you're reading this because you're worried about someone else important in your life, I will happily speak to you about your concerns and how I could possibly help them.

Psychotherapy and counselling are immensely helpful tools when life challenges us beyond what we can cope with: the sudden loss of a job, the breakup of a relationship or the loss of a loved one. But even when we are not dealing with something that big and may simply feel adrift, or like we are struggling to reconnect to a sense of enthusiasm either professionally or personally, psychotherapy and counselling can help us to see these crises as opportunities for growth and change; portals to go beyond the limitations set by old patterns which no longer serve us, so that we may evolve into a better version of ourselves.

Perhaps you feel anxious, insecure and that you depend on your relationships to be happy. It might be that you worry because you feel too needy in relationships. Maybe you have difficulties maintaining relationships because you end up pushing others away. You always find yourself in the same unhealthy patterns of being and relating. You would like to break these cycles and understand why they occur. You wish to understand yourself better, heal emotional wounds, and find a new perspective in life and relationships.

Being a parent/caregiver can sometimes feel very challenging, especially if your child is experiencing difficulties. Are you left wondering whether you are getting it right? It may be that you want to strengthen your relationship with your child and think about how you communicate with each other. We may also think about how you are taking care of your own needs and how to self-regulate your emotions in a healthy manner. Perhaps you are concerned about your child’s mental health and are looking for a way to help your child feel like themselves again. No matter what you are both going through, things can get better.

I qualified as a therapist in 2007, and later as a Transpersonal psychotherapist. I work in full time private practice and provide one to one psychotherapy. I am also an accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. As well as offering face to face appointments, I also see clients online, both in the UK and internationally. My experience of having worked with clients online over a number of years, is that it can provide an effective means of working at depth and supporting real change. Many of the approaches I use within a face to face context have been successfully adapted.

Are you tired of pretending you’re OK? Are you your own harshest critic? So used to putting others first that it’s hard to hold on to your own self-worth? Or you may be finding that getting out of bed is a struggle, you don't want to go to work or show up in your life. Add in experiences of sexism, micro-aggressions, abuse, and ageism, and your confidence can be knocked. It’s not much fun feeling anxious, depressed or stressed all the time. Comparing yourself to others and not feeling good enough can affect your mood and your relationships with yourself and with others. These are all things that therapy can help you work through.

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.
