7 Years Experience

You might be asking ‘Why would I go see a psychotherapist?’ or 'Do I really need to see a therapist?'

Some people come to therapy after a bereavement, the breakdown of a relationship, perhaps the loss of a job, or a specific crisis. Other people come because of the emergence of feelings of anxiety, depression, lethargy or general feelings of purposelessness, which can seem insurmountable, yet inexplicable.

Some people find themselves confused in their circumstances – ‘How did I get here, and what do I do now?’ – or are struggling to make decisions.

Times of transition are often fraught with anxiety, for example, the beginning or end of university, marriage, parenthood, and retirement. Others feel that although on the surface they have everything they need, there is still a niggling feeling – a hunch, perhaps – that something is not quite right.

Simply put, there is no ‘right’ reason to consider therapy.

Psychotherapy and counselling offer an environment in which to talk about your concerns, to make them alive in the presence of a therapist; someone who is trained to remain non-judgmental, and who isn’t part of your life on a day-to-day basis. I aim to do this in a way that is respectful, enquiring, rigorous, and at times even humorous. How we feel in our lives should never be compared to how others feel in theirs; our experiences, and our responses to what life throws at us are our own, and nobody else’s.

Crucially, therapy is a collaborative endeavour. We will work together to identify patterns, gently question existing assumptions, and hopefully learn something about how you are carrying yourself through the world and interacting with others.

In a city as diverse as London, it is also important to be attuned to one’s own cultural identity, and consider the impact of our individual cultural heritage and relationship to it within a global environment. I am particularly aware of the possibility that contradictions can arise from this, which can result in feelings of anxiety and uncertainty.

I have significant experience working with:
- male and female survivors of sexual abuse and violence
- long-term depression
- clients working in the creative professions
- cultural identity

My qualifications
- Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (PGDip)
- Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy (ADEP)
- (UKCP) UK Council for Psychotherapy
