I am a Relate trained Counsellor and Supervisor with over seventeen years experience of helping people who are confronted with relationship issues such as loss of trust, difficulty with listening or being heard, self-esteem, difficult and un-productive patterns of conflict with partners or family members and much more. Some people choose to do therapy in order to address a specific problem that is occurring at the time. Others may see it as a safe, non-judgemental space in which to gain further insight and understanding into themselves in the context of their relationships. I work both short and longer term.

These are some of the things people may be thinking or saying when they decide to seek professional support: "I experience awful feelings of panic." "I feel anxious a lot of the time. "I feel tearful a lot." "I can feel angry all day and it feels bad." "Life appears very confusing and complicated" I offer professional counselling, support and strategies to help you navigate your way through whatever your issues may be, already in the first session. I hold a professional psychotherapy diploma from the Human Givens Institute. This approach helped a family member with anxiety very much which is why I chose to train in it also.

Difficulties in romantic and family relationships can cause anger, distress, resentment and deep unhappiness.
I work intergratively and collaboratively, that is to say I draw on different psychological therapies, including CBT, Narrative and Attachment ideas and techniques, depending on the challenges and stories brought into the therapy room by the client(s). I work within an overarching Systemic framework which pays special attention to supporting individuals, couples and families to find the strengths of their relationships so as to make disturbing symptoms less problematic. It is not just about problems however, Systemic therapy is  built on a bedrock of hope, focusing on resilience and resourcefulness.

My Background: I began my career as a psychotherapist 10 years ago when I completed a degree in Clinical Psychology and a Master’s degree in Family -Couple Therapy.
“We almost always have choices, and the better the choice, the more we will be in control of our lives“. In my counseling sessions, I am committed to create a safe, warm, non-judgmental and confidential space within which you can freely address life's difficulties in a creative and meaningful way. My approach is integrative, derived from different therapeutic methods including third-waves cognitive therapy (such as schema therapy and ACT) and Mindfulness-based therapy. I also apply psychoeducation in order to optimise the effectiveness of my therapy sessions including self-awareness, anger management and stress management skills.

After completion of my MA in Transpersonal /Integrative Child, Adolescents and Family Therapy in 2018, I now also take on children and adolescents, using play and art therapy as well as sand tray therapy to help to resolve trauma, stress, anxiety, depression and self harm.
My main approach is to encourage you to explore your feelings and take responsibility for your thoughts and actions. As I work in a way that empowers the client, I always work with what you present. Bottled up feelings such as anger, anxiety, grief, jealousy, sadness, shame and pain can become very overwhelming.The opportunity to express them can make it much easier to understand yourself and others. As I acknowledge your feelings and respect you as a person in your own right, you gain self-respect and a sense of being valued. This leads to building trust between counsellor and client, which is an essential part of the process.

In addition to my private work, I work in CAMHS offering family therapy consultations for families in need of a safe space and a kind, non-judgemental input.
I believe that self-awareness and authenticity are key in creating deeper and more satisfying connections. In our therapeutic space, I will offer you a safe, open and compassionate space and I will invite you to explore aspects of yourself and how you relate to others. We will look at the stories that you’ve created over the years about yourself, how they impact the way you feel nowadays and bring about new perspectives that could help you feel less constricted moving forwards.

The type of therapy that I offer is aimed at people who seek to make sense of their difficulties by exploring their generational stories, family values and personal experiences to bring an awareness to how these might have played out in their life transition stages, as well as in their relationship to others.
Some people who have had painful experiences in their past suffer from mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. This is usually because the effect of these experiences on the person's sense of self as well as on their significant relationships have never been explored or discussed. Consequently, they enter into problematic interaction patterns often fueled by feelings of not being validated or acknowledged by the people who are closest to them. Their issues might also be linked to their culture, race, sexuality, age , faith etc as well as to their stories of migration.

This allows me to tailor an approach to the individual or family .
The 'everyday experiences of life' can present many challenges. It can be valuable to take time to talk about feelings of anxiety, low mood, anger, worry or relational issues, or habits or behaviours that you would like to move on from. I am committed to helping people develop and achieve what is important to them, in accordance with their values and beliefs. Talking can help us to climb up above an issue and look down on it, like viewing the terrain of our lives from a high vantage point. This new perspective can suggest new ways round obstacles and new ways forwards.

However sometimes it is easier to talk to a professional than friends and family that know you well and may want to give you advice.
Would you like to talk to someone impartial about your relationship difficulties, find out tips on how to communicate better with your partner? Are you looking to separate or divorce after an infidelity or a stressful few years? Maybe you've grown apart or just not sure whether you want to stay together? Perhaps your sex life is suffering and you want to improve it. Do you feel frustrated because you end up having the same kind of argument over and over and you want to understand why you feel stuck?

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.
