I am a psychodynamic therapist based in inner London. My focus is on behaviour and the catalysts behind it.My objective is to make thinking and thinking about the self, more accessible to all and to remove what may be perceived to be the difficulty to this. One of the simplest ways I do this is by how I present, smart and professional but no formal attire. Presentation, alongside communication are key catalysts in creating a space in which young people feel safe to access and begin their journey towards positive internal and external progression.

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.

Taking the first step towards therapy can feel like a big one. So, congratulations on making the decision to come here and look for help. I can help you take the next steps towards a better future. You might be coming to therapy for help with a specific problem, such as coping with anxiety or depression or an earlier traumatic experience. Maybe something in your life has changed: a relationship has broken down or you are facing a loss, and you need help to process it and get through this difficult phase. Or you might be feeling lonely or lost yourself, or simply stuck in life, and need help finding where where to go now.

Therapy has the exciting potential to support deep self-understanding and change. The reasons that people give therapy a try are uniquely subjective. Initially perhaps there is a wish to try something new and involves some type of recognition-noticing something that feels tangled, elusive, and a struggle. Especially in group therapy you come to know yourself in ways you didn't before through reflecting with others on experiences in and out of the group. Group therapy can offer deeper insights that can help with figuring out options for change in oneself and in relationships and can bring hope for the future.

At various points in our lives we can experience distressing events or feelings which seem overwhelming. They can result from particular circumstance such as difficulties in our work lives, relationships, bereavement, illness or dealing with painful memories from our childhood. Sometimes we are unsure as to what is making us feel the way we do. All we know is that life may have become directionless, distressing, or even intolerable. It might be at these times psychotherapy might be helpful.

We all have the capacity for growth, given the right conditions. Part of what therapy can be is the creation of a space where those conditions are met. During our 50 minute sessions, we will work toward a common goal. My role is to try to understand your lived experiences, in a confidential, non-discriminatory environment. Not to judge you. But most importantly therapy is about what you want to use the time and space for. People think of counselling as a last resort. We often keep our problems to ourselves, we compound all that feeling and pain and it emerges in our day to day lives in different ways, depression, stress, anxiety.

Life often throws challenges at us which can be difficult to cope with. Maybe you’d like to have greater confidence in yourself, be more assertive and at work or improve your relationships? It could be you’ve lived through a traumatic experience or are struggling with addiction. Looking for a change in life direction but not sure how to do it. Therapy might sound challenging to begin but I’ve worked with many people who have gained a lot from it. Whatever is going on I’m curious to explore with you how to untangle the knot.

Currently working via ZOOM, I am a psychotherapist and counsellor with consulting rooms in Highgate in north London and Harley Street in central London. My approach is integrative. This means that I work with a wide range of psychotherapeutic theories. Each provides its own valuable perspective and is enhanced when carefully integrated with another. The term 'integrative' also refers to the process of integrating the personality, taking disowned aspects of the self and bringing them into awareness, therefore reducing the need for self-defeating defence mechanisms and behaviour.

You might be struggling with difficult feelings like anxiety or depression, a painful loss, relationship issues or unhelpful behaviour patterns and need some support understanding what is going on for you. Clients who have difficulty navigating the world typically have not had sufficient recognition from important relationships which is the first step towards experiencing change & feeling better. Underlying my training and work is a commitment to diversity and inclusion and I encourage an environment where my clients can be themselves without feeling shame or embarrassment.

Male Counsellors

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
