I’m a qualified therapist experienced in supporting individuals who identify as LGBT+ in addressing issues connected with self-esteem, self-worth and acceptance. I can help you address issues that are causing you emotional pain, giving you cause for concern, or making you feel uncomfortable. Whether you may be confronting difficult situations, facing challenging decisions, or healing from old wounds. My style is to encourage clients to speak in openness and confidence about difficult topics and emotions.

Do you sometimes feel like you’ve lost your way? Stuck, worn out, worried about the future? Perhaps life has taken an unexpected turn – work is getting you down, you're facing fertility or parenting challenges, relationships aren’t working out, you're anxious or depressed. Often adapting to even positive changes can be stressful, and when life changes are unwanted we can feel anxious, despairing, and lose our confidence. Or perhaps you’ve achieved what you wanted but are still unhappy and can't quite put your finger on why?

Sometimes life is confusing, painful and problematic and we are troubled, distressed and not at peace with our lives or, ourselves. I fully believe that counselling is a setting in which we are able to speak freely and not feel judged; a place where we are met with empathy and understanding. I truly believe a setting such as this provides the basis from which healing can begin. It is absolutely my belief that the answers to our questions lie within us and we just need some assistance in navigating to those answers. Whatever it is you are seeking help with, I would love to work with you to find your answers, clarity and peace.

In my practice, psychotherapy is treated as a combination of Art and Science. The work is guided by intuition, creativity, and curiosity. My background and training are in the depth psychology of C. G. Jung, and in my work I incorporate body work, movement, breathing, and meditation. Together with my beautiful cat assistant Luna, we offer a caring and non-judgmental space for you to express Your Truth.

I work with Millennial adults 1-1 and with couples, who are experiencing challenges in life transitions, their mental health, and relationships. It can be that all of these affect one another; therapy is a safe and non-judgemental space to explore these, with the aim of coming to a fuller sense of understanding, renewed perspective, with clarity and healing along the way.

Life can be difficult and sometimes it is helpful to talk to someone to understand ourselves and our situations better. Though we are each an expert on our own lives, at times we may need someone else to be alongside us as we make sense of our experiences; in order that we may move through or discover a clearer understanding of whatever challenges we are facing. It is not always possible to sort things out by speaking with family or friends. Maybe what is bothering you feels too private, or you are seeking someone impartial to help you gain a broader view, this is where therapy can help.

In my practice I have been specialising in anxiety and dread. These symptoms can manifest in many ways and, we will experience them in our unique way. Perhaps you are dealing with relational difficulties, sense of inadequacy, or feeling not good enough. Working from home and managing your personal life alongside might be challenging and at times almost unbearable. Internal and external conflicts, personal crisis can also be an opportunity for growth and change if addressed in an empathic way by a non-judgemental other. I will help you transform your symptoms into a meaningful experience and help you alter the self-narrative.

I'm so pleased you're here taking this step. I’m a warm and down-to-earth therapist, who works with several difficulties but the main 3 being: anxiety, self-esteem and relationship communication. I've run a successful private practice since 2019 and have since built an online membership platform to support people with their mental health.

I'm passionate about helping people to understand there is absolutely no shame in needing support.

Seeking help is not always easy, but it's the first step in helping you find the tools to tackle the challenges life brings. Counselling can help you renew your sense of well-being and discover methods to heal and care for your inner self. Whether you are dealing with a difficult situation, struggling to make sense of what's going on, feeling depressed, stressed out or dealing with painful emotions, therapy can be the key to help you through your journey. My core belief is that most people have a sense of their own well being and know when

I see the therapeutic space as an opportunity to take a new look at current difficulties, taking into account old and often unconscious issues in order to promote the awareness that leads to more harmonious functioning and more satisfactory relationships. I prioritise establishing a climate of trust in the therapeutic relationship where warmth and empathy are paramount. My experience also reaches to supporting young adults who seek to better understand their concerns and symptoms, which can be in the range of depression, relationship snd family difficulties.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in London?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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.
