No-one knows your world as well as you do. However, sometimes, that world can be difficult to understand. Perhaps your world changed recently and you’re struggling to make sense of things now. Maybe you feel low or anxious and aren’t sure why. Talking things through with someone can help.

"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." Life can be difficult at times and we tend to experience our greatest challenges when what we are doing is very different from what we would like to be doing. Sometimes our relationships might not be fulfilling or work can seem pointless or unsatisfactory. This can manifest in distressing thoughts, painful feelings and unhelpful behaviours. Our work together will help you to live a more rich and meaningful life.

Life can be tough sometimes and we can easily find ourselves stuck in cycles of unhelpful thinking or behaving. My aim is to help you to become unstuck and access a healthier, happier version of yourself. You may not know exactly how or why things aren't working, so an initial assessment can help us to figure this out together. I believe that we all possess the knowledge and resources to address our problems - I see my role as helping you to unlock this knowledge, access these skills, and acquire some additional tools along the way.

I am a London-based psychotherapist, working mainly with clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, effects of relational trauma, relationship issues/heartbreak/separation/divorce and bereavement/loss/grief. I am registered with the UKCP and comply with its ethical standards. I offer my clients a confidential, safe and respectful space to explore their issues and facilitate their transformation. I take the view that our difficulties are in fact opportunities to bring out what is latent and yearning to be expressed in us, although it often feels difficult to see this possibility as we go through our challenging life situations.

I offer a warm non-judgemental and confidential environment in which to discuss your issues. As a BACP registered and accredited counsellor, I have substantial experience both in public sector organisations, and as a private practitioner, and have worked with a wide range of complex issues, supporting people to make successful changes in their lives. Working creatively, and with the therapeutic relationship remaining at the heart of the process, I adhere to the theory that the client is the best expert of themselves and that with deep empathy coupled with the therapeutic alliance, this expertise can be revealed and applied.

My initial interest in Existential therapy was informed by my personal and professional experiences. Throughout the years I have explored diverse ways of supporting my clients, looking to improve their emotional and spiritual balance. Existential therapy encapsulates all my core beliefs about the therapeutic process and the powerful therapeutic connection between psychology and philosophy. It is anchored in the lived experiences (not their theoretical representation) and their relational context. It relates to human existence and predicaments, our choices and responsibilities, meaning and purpose, freedom and limitations.

Our sessions gives you the opportunity to discuss your thoughts, feelings and experiences in a non-judgemental and confidential space. I will give you time to work out how to best cope with what you are facing, to come to terms with the past as well as to explore ways to improve your relationships. I will support you but also at times challenge you so that you can honestly evaluate and clarify what really matters to you.

I work with both individuals, couples and families, specialising in helping those with relationship difficulties, low-self esteem, anxiety and depression. Relationships are the most exciting and fulfilling aspect in our lives, but they can also be difficult and challenging. Most relationships go through a difficult patch at some time. Through counselling, you can learn how to stop fights from escalating, identify and change the underlying patterns that cause them and reconnect to the bond that you share with each other.

I’m not here to judge or offer advice. I’m here to listen and to help you navigate the changes you want to make in order to grow and move forward in your life. I can support you to consider how your past experiences inform you today and how they might impact your future. This allows the therapy to be a creative and collaborative process; I'm an advocate of no one-size-fits-all. I work ‘integratively’, which means that I integrate a wide range of therapeutic approaches. I adapt my approach to align with you and what you want to gain from therapy.
