I see individuals who feel stuck in their lives for a whole variety of reasons. Maybe you are stuck in a particular time, place or experience from a past trauma; maybe you are struggling to move forward in your life; or maybe you are stuck in unhealthy behavioural patterns. Whatever brings you to therapy, my specialty is a deep exploration of all the factors that are currently holding you back.
To do this, I develop long-term supportive relationships with my clients and work in an open-ended way, rather than exclusively trying to “fix” the immediate problem. I use my strong expertise in psychotherapeutic theory, alongside a caring and patient approach, to help people address their challenges at a level they can’t reach on their own.
I pride myself on my ability to help people feel at ease, even when discussing distressing feelings or experiences. I am skilled in creating a safe and nurturing environment for those who are unsure or nervous about therapy. My work is always led by the client’s needs, and my “integrative” style of psychotherapy means that I get a full understanding of the person, and adapt my methods to suit the individual.
Qualifications and Experience
I am an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, meaning that I am rigorously trained in a full range of psychotherapeutic techniques and modalities. I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the Minster Centre. I am a registered member of the BACP (registration number 378249) and adhere to the BACP Codes of Ethical Practice.
I have many years of experience in a range of settings, including in the NHS and private practices, working with clients on personal struggles, mental health challenges, grief, social pressures, sexuality and intimacy and other issues.

My practice is based at Hackney Therapy (E8) centrally located close to the City, on many bus routes, and walking distance to Haggerston and Dalston overground stations.
