If you are feeling low, anxious or stuck and unable to change things yourself, or repeating difficult or destructive patterns of behaviour, working with and talking with someone not involved in your life can really help. If you are struggling to cope with how life is at the moment or with something from the past, then getting support from me is the first step to feeling supported and heard and looking at how we can work together to help you make changes in behaviour, relationships, communication and ways of thinking and processing what you are facing. Your emotional and mental well-being matters and you don't have to struggle alone.

I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, who is a free spirited and creative person. My professional background varies from working with mild to severe adult mental health, to working with special needs and hard to reach children and young people in education. During times of uncertainty surrounding us at the moment, where multiple challenges are thrown in our direction, feeling overwhelmed, out of sync, heightened stressed levels, and increased anxiety are very normal. These feelings may have been apparent beforehand and now feel more intense.

We seek therapy for many reasons. I welcome anything you wish to bring from anxiety, to trauma, grief, ptsd, shame and life crisis or indeed the difficulties you may have faced within this last year and a half. I offer a safe space to explore your current life struggles. I will walk by your side as you uncover a greater sense of ease, self understanding and indeed joy. We will find the repeating limiting themes you encounter and work to understand them and reintegrate the parts that suffered and froze along the way. I endeavour to provide a secure base for you to experience.

I am currently a therapist in the NHS within a National Specialist therapy programme at the world-renowned Maudsley Hospital in London. I was trained at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience in a number of psychological therapies for a range of difficulties.

Fear, anxiety, grief, loss and traumatic experiences can get in the way of self-acceptance and self-compassion. Without this, it is difficult to move forward with life and live well in the here and now. I work with clients to live well, whatever their circumstances and however they define living well. Our work together motivates changes in perspective, which leads to changes in feelings, thoughts, choices and behaviour. Although it is not a linear trajectory these changes can and do happen, with the right support, even in the most challenging of circumstances.

What can you expect? A relationship, essentially. I truly believe in creating a relationship that works for you, that can support you in becoming more who you are. I believe the journey together leads towards more authenticity and more psychological freedom. It is an exciting exploration of what really matters to you, particularly what has been neglected so far. My Psychosynthesis practice blends the exploration of here-and-now problem solving with a focus on what is trying to emerge, how you have been in the world, and what has impacted the expression of your full potential and fulfillment.

Looking for support? Worried about your child not coping with school? Being a child or young person can be full of wonder but there are also challenges - anxiety, panic, stress around school or friendships. Self-critical habits, intrusive thoughts and low self-worth that can prevent us from feeling our best selves. We all have fears - what do others think of me? am I good enough? am I loved or wanted? Relationships are hugely important to all of us but can feel so hard at times. Not everyone will experience life in the most ideal way - life can be complicated. Recognizing these issues and reaching out for support takes courage.

Psychotherapist, MSc
The protective power of arts in health and mental health has been with us for millennia and today is evidence based. Daily life's emotional demands often go unnoticed and coping with anger, fear and sadness is socially accepted to happen in silence. Nourishing and protecting our mental health can get easily neglected. Although family and friends can play a wonderful supportive role in times of need they may not be enough in times of crisis. Making the choice to look after our mental health is our first step to personal growth. Making art is creative and fun. Being part of a supportive and safe group is therapeutic.

As you read this profile, you are probably feeling ‘stuck’ in some way –maybe overwhelmed by grief, painful events, relationship breakdowns or difficult life choices. I believe this is when therapy can help. It gives you a safe, non-judgemental space to explore both the challenges you are facing and parts of yourself that even you might not feel very familiar with. From this, you can gain useful insights that will allow you to arrive at a point of clarity around your situation and the choices you may need to make to proceed in life. In our sessions you will have the freedom to explore whatever is troubling you, at your own pace.

Welcome... You don’t have to be in crisis to seek therapy… In fact, therapy can be helpful at any time. REACHING OUT for support in the past has often been seen as a sign of weakness or even taboo. But nowadays, we know it takes a courageous person to be able to reach out. Therapy can be one of the supportive ways, to make living life more fulfilling. This is where therapy can shed light.

Do you find yourself prioritising the external world and the needs of those around you? Perhaps you feel different to others or misunderstood in relationships? It may be you experience self-doubt, negative thinking or notice yourself repeating patterns that impact your relationships. Whatever is going on for you working together, relationally we can begin to explore ‘YOU’, to focus on raising your awareness & understanding of the way you experience yourself, to identify your goals for therapy, to be open to learning new ways of being. Therapy is a commitment between client & therapist, to be open to wanting things to be different.

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.
