Whether you are struggling with a life event or you carry unhelpful patterns from the past, I would like to help you manage the present more to your satisfaction. I will listen and try to understand what life is like for you. If you feel that you are not good enough and that your low self-esteem is impacting on your choices and the view of yourself, life can be hard. Experiencing problems in important relationships in your life, or struggling to connect with people, can make you feel isolated. Talking to somebody could be the first helpful step.

We all experience times when our usual ways of being in the world no longer seem to work for us. We can feel stuck or overwhelmed. Counselling can help us see things with fresh perspectives, opening up new possibilities to live a more authentic life with more satisfying connections with ourselves and others. I believe that with the right support, we have an amazing capacity to find our own answers and to be the source of our own healing. I aim to offer a safe, welcoming and non-judgemental space for you to work through whatever it is that may be holding you back from living the life you really want to be living.

Online psychotherapist with an eclectic and inventive approach. Practicing Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). I believe that people already have within themselves what they need in order to overcome their struggles. All it takes is a bit of guidance and someone to ask the right questions. My wish for my clients is that they find the inner freedom to live the life that they want. I mostly work with expats, travelers, digital nomads, burners - I can relate to the lifestyle and can appreciate the need for flexibility and rescheduling sessions when necessary, however, anyone is welcome.

Finding the right therapist for you is as much about their style and personality as their qualifications. On becoming a therapist I thought a lot about what qualities have been important to me as a client in therapy: warmth, approachability, open-mindedness and the ability to laugh with me, when appropriate, all scored highly. So I endeavour to bring these qualities to my own practice. I work integratively, which means I can draw from different theories to suit each individual client’s needs. I am particularly influenced by attachment theory, IFS and relational/compassion/mindfulness based ways of working.

Life sometimes throws us curve balls and I am here to provide a listening ear and non-judgmental space. Its twists and turns can cause us to respond in rote ways learned in early childhood. I work in a psychodynamic way; as a trained art psychotherapist I also value creative responses to difficulty.

Reasons for seeking counselling may vary and these could include a wide range of psychological or emotional distress as well as the need to explore your life more deeply or reflect on particular life decisions or dilemmas. The way we approach challenges in life and the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that arise from them can sometimes be the source of further suffering which can be experienced as shame, self-criticism, isolation, self-loathing, self-blame and deep emotional suffering.

I offer you a safe place to explore your emotions and the issues that trouble you and will work with you to find solutions which will improve your life. Therapy with me is about preparing to make changes. I will help you release the thoughts that trouble you, your fears and despair and help you contain those most intense feelings so we can look deeper into the reasons why you are not functioning as you would like to. We can't always change the way those around us behave, but we can change our attitude to life and to others.

I offer one-to-one psychotherapy in London Bridge/Borough. I work in a way that emphasises collaborating with clients to develop a pathway towards making meaningful and lasting positive change and growth. Your aims may be specific: for instance that you wish to work on a specific situation or setting in which you feel you are struggling; you may have a general sense that something in your life does not feel right, or you may feel you are somewhere in between these two examples. The main purpose of therapy is to help you move towards living the life you want to live and feel most at home in.

Seeking therapy is a sign of courage in the depths of conflict. Currently, you may be troubled or overwhelmed, not knowing what is happening either within you, your partner or communicatively between your couple. To be understood and appreciated while conveying the same qualities to another person is an essential component of any satisfying relationship, but it is one that takes an emotional commitment from those involved in finding a resolution. The question I often ask my clients is, "Can you bear the difference of the other, or even tolerate the possibility that they may have a different perspective to the one in your mind?"

Are you stressed, suffer disrupted sleep, have mood swings or generally feel out of sorts? There may be other areas, such as relationships, work, health and well-being that you wish to discuss and get an independent view on. Speaking to a professional, with no link to your regular life, can provide the safety and freedom so that you can fully express yourself. This can bring clarity and relief. I will provide support, guidance and an independent view to help you think things through. I am happy to have a chat on the phone so that you get an idea of how it works and for you to hear my voice. We can work time limited or open-ended.

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.
