, Psychotherapist - London
I am a qualified, UKCP accredited, Integrative Psychotherapist working in Central London.
I work with a wide range of issues, specialising in depression, low self-esteem, co-dependency and relationship issues, be it with a significant other, family members, socially or at work. I have a particular interest in working with addictions, developmental trauma and eating disorders.
Drawing on my extensive experience of the corporate environment I can offer specific support for professionals (especially young) suffering from stress, anxiety, and loss of purpose. I also work closely with adult survivors of difficult childhoods, especially people who are coming to terms with various forms of abuse or neglect (be it physical, emotional or sexual).
Background & Qualifications
I am a former City professional and graduate from the University of Cambridge, with a UKCP accredited Post-Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy. In addition to my private practice I have experience working with a diverse range of people for both the NHS (as a counsellor and clinical team leader) and in a voluntary setting for the Maytree Suicide Respite Centre, Islington Victim Support, and for the Caravan, a drop-in service based in the heart of Piccadilly.
I also run my own weekend workshops offering a deeper taste of mindfulness practices, creatively combined with group psychotherapy, poetry and music. And for over 5 years I have facilitated weekly meditation and poetry groups.
My specialisms include:
Meaning & Purpose
Abuse & Neglect
Approach to Therapy & How I Work
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist which means I combine different counselling and therapeutic approaches, including psychodynamic, CBT, humanistic, and transpersonal, as needed to meet the specific needs and issues that you want to explore.
My approach also draws on a strong foundation in mindfulness practice. Mindfulness based therapies such as MBCT and MBSR have been proven by researchers at Oxford to significantly reduce stress, anxiety, depression and other emotional issues.
Combining the different modalities in which I have trained means that I offer an approach to therapy that is uniquely tailored to suit you and the challenges you face.
