Psychotherapy, CBT and Counselling in the City of London


My way of working

Central to my way of working is offering a non-judgemental, safe and relaxed therapeutic environment where clients can feel understood and reflect on their experiences. People may come to therapy for many different reasons and some may bring with them a diagnostic label. I am interested in the uniqueness of each individual’s experience and how the relationship with oneself, others and the world shape how people operate in their environment and give meaning to their experience.


In 2011, I completed a Doctorate in Psychotherapeutic and Counselling Psychology at the University of Surrey, where I have learned the principles of a number of therapeutic models (Psychodynamic, Person-centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). Being trained in using different therapeutic approaches allows me to integrate them in a creative way taking into account the client’s individual needs and preferences. I also have a personal and research interest in mindfulness and I draw from the new developments in mindfulness-based therapies in my work with clients.

Since qualifying, I have also trained in Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT), a psychodynamic therapy that looks at the links between current difficulties and patterns of relating to others that usually stem from childhood and impact on current relationships. 


I have experience of working within an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) and different services in the NHS, including primary care services, a Community Mental Health Team and a specialist personality disorder service. In these settings, I have worked both short-term and long-term with clients experiencing a broad range of emotional and psychological difficulties, from mild depression and anxiety to complex trauma.

Your first session

Starting therapy is a big step and it can be unsettling if you do not know what to expect. In the first meeting, we will explore together the issues that bring you to therapy and think about the options available to you. We can think about what type of therapy would be better for you and may agree to meet for a number of sessions. However, there is no expectation that you start therapy after the first session and we can have an open conversation about the best way forward.

Private health insurance
