From time to time, we all go through difficulties. You may be experiencing anxiety, depression, panic attacks, anger, shame, bereavement, low self-esteem, loss, OCD, phobias or family and relationship issues. You may want to work through a current problem or gain an understanding of experiences from the past.
Taking the first step can often feel daunting. I offer a free phone consultation where we can discuss the therapeutic process and my way of working to see whether it feels like a good fit for you.
I'm an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist based in East London. I'm a registered member of the BACP and offer a safe, confidential space to explore whatever difficulties you might be facing.
Before qualifying as a counsellor and psychotherapist, I worked in social care for over seven years. During this time I supported people facing a broad range of issues, including anxiety, depression, acquired brain injury, borderline personality disorder, autism, learning disabilities and phobias.
I have undergone personal therapy since 2016 which has been invaluable in working through my own life experiences and gives me a lens through which to view the therapeutic process as a client.
As an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, I draw from a range of theoretical approaches including humanistic, psychodynamic and solution-focused theory to find the right fit for each individual.
I believe in a relational approach to the therapeutic journey which asserts that most problems in life are born out of our experiences in relationships with others. I support people to recognise the role relationships play in the shaping of daily life and I help people to understand patterns appearing in the thoughts and feelings they have toward themselves.
I provide a supportive, confidential and non-judgemental space and uphold the ethical standards of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I welcome people from all cultures and backgrounds, those identifying as LGBTQ+ and those wishing to explore new pathways in life.
