Hello and welcome. I’m here to help you find the inner strengths you need to unblock what’s troubling you and move on with your life. My clients tell me I’m warm, kind and insightful – which is good, because my main aim is to offer a safe, welcoming place where you feel willing and able to consider making changes. Most of us aren’t used to reaching out for professional support. We’re brought up to think asking for help can be a sign of weakness. But whatever you’re facing, working together with a professional therapist can let you see a way forward.

It helps to talk, especially if you are feeling worried, sad, fearful, or perhaps just stuck. Talking with an attentive listener, in a confidential environment, offers a unique space for different ways of thinking and being to emerge, through examining your life and relationships, past and present. Sometimes you may need to speak about particular difficult experiences and emotions - but it's not always clear what is troubling us. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy recognises that as well as our conscious minds, we also live in the unconscious and don't always understand the cause of our suffering - or indeed what is our potential.

I am an experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor. I offer a confidential and safe space where we can think about what is troubling you in a non-judgemental setting. People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons. Life can throw upsetting things at us and sometimes we find ourselves affected by events more than we expect. Psychodynamic therapy provides an opportunity to discover the unconscious processes that drive our responses and behaviours. Once these processes are acknowledged, we have the choice of changing how we react. This can help us to feel better about ourselves and live a more fulfilling life.

My previous career as a scriptwriter has led me to be particularly attended to clients' narratives. Each individual has their unique story to tell. Each contains elements of significant people,conflicts, struggles and resources. It may impact the way we see ourselves, others and the world. By engaging in the process of therapy, we may open up new possibilities and to rewrite our stories.

Through counselling I provide a space just for you where you can gain insight, experience change, and realise your full potential. You may be experiencing difficulties, such as a relationship breakdown, struggling with depression or anxiety, or feeling shame or low self-esteem. Perhaps you sense something hasn’t felt right for a while, but you are unable to pin point why. Counselling gives you time each week to slow down and can help you recognise your own feelings and needs, and develop deeper connections and relationships. Counselling allows you the opportunity and space to get in touch with who you are and what you want in life.

I have a passion for working with people who experience adverse and stressful life events that make it difficult to reach their potential or maintain a good quality of life. The people I work with are also often wanting help with difficulties associated with post-traumatic stress, complex traumas, low mood, anxiety, managing emotions and stress, and in relationship and life patterns. This is in line with my other work within a national service at the renowned Maudsley Hospital. I specialise in supporting people who have experienced stressors (e.g. discrimination, prejudices) related to aspects of minoritised identity (e.g. LGBTQ+).

I like to see any life journey as a metaphor to walking in known and unknown territories. We follow the cairns along the way (beliefs, relationships, professional career...) and sometimes we lose sight of them, we get anxious; stuck; lost; not good enough and compensatory mechanisms no longer work. This is usually when we look for help, including counselling, psychotherapy or psychoanalysis. In the therapeutic setting, I will walk with you at your pace to re-discover or re-build these structures that bring you a sense of direction, safety, strength and meaning in your life and allow you to go on to your individual path.

Perhaps a combination of both. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and gentle space for you to tell your story. Together we can look at is causing you pain, where it’s roots may be and what impact it is having on your day-to-day life.

I view therapy as an individual process and a journey of self discovery that create an opportunity to become aware of inner conflicts and unhelpful patterns of behaviour. I recognise that there is not one approach to therapy that will suit everyone. Hence, I incorporate integrative approach that means I can adapt therapy to each client and their individual needs. I can offer help and have worked with people struggling with a range of conditions including depression, anxiety or adjustment.
