I work with young people and adults from diverse backgrounds and draw on different tools and modalities to best suit each individual according to their needs. Talking forms the foundation of my work, but I weave in many practices, such as play, art and mindfulness. I also use movement at times to drop deeper into the wisdom of the body and work with it as a means of gentle inquiry and expression.

I provide therapeutic services for individual adults & young people, as well as couples. I offer a safe and confidential space in W1, TN1 and RH19 to work on a short or long term basis depending on your need. If you haven't had counselling before, the thought of talking to a stranger about something that's troubling you can seem frightening. You may have an idea of the changes you want to make, or simply be aware that you want something in your life to be different without being sure how to achieve this. I am qualified to practise Transactional Analysis psychotherapy and can support you to initiate the changes you seek to make.

Whether you are an individual or a couple experiencing anxiety, stress or depression reaching out for help is good and courageous. Therapy has the power to connect you more deeply with your inner resources, giving you the tools to cope better and become more successful. As human beings, our universal needs are to feel loved, respected and fulfilled and when these are missing, we can often experience a disconnect with others and ourselves, feel lonely (even when in a relationship), anxious or meaningless. Don't suffer alone, but reach out today! I also offer intercultural psychotherapy for culturally diverse people.

Many people experience emotional difficulties at some point in their lives, triggered by a particular event, or as a result of deeper unidentified issues. Talking to a psychodynamic therapist, in a safe and confidential environment, provides a unique opportunity to identify the themes and patterns of thought and behaviour that can generate emotional distress,. This can involve talking through past experiences and understanding how they impact you today. The relationship with the therapist is important, as it provides an opportunity to examine ways of thinking and relating in the here and now as well as developmental factors.

We often tell our lives as stories in order to make meaning out of them. Sometimes our own story seems to disrupt due to an immediate crisis or issues to do with our past that cause us distress. Perhaps a combination of both. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and gentle space for you to tell your story. Together we can look at is causing you pain, where it’s roots may be and what impact it is having on your day-to-day life. Most importantly work toward finding a way through the struggles you may be experiencing.

Is anxiety affecting how you feel about yourself, making you feel like you’re in a trap with limited options? We can work together to get you closer to who you want to be, break down those barriers and open up choices for you in life. I have worked successfully with many people on the challenges of anxiety, helping them to find the answers they’ve been looking for. You will be able to talk about experiences, make sense of them, and come to terms with them. Counselling can help you to develop as a person with fresh understanding. I can listen to you and support you so that you can move forward and get the most out of life.

I do so by a) utilising techniques from various approaches, to adapt to my clients’ specific issues; and b) regularly and collaboratively evaluating the therapeutic way of working, to consider my clients' preferences and needs. Recognising that one size does not fit all is paramount for successful therapy.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

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.

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.
