Psychotherapy & Counselling For adults and young people

About me

I am an integrative therapist and counsellor working in private practice with adults and young people in the Paddington and Fulham Broadway areas of London.

I offer both long and short-term therapy, usually weekly.

Additionally, I am an experienced secondary school counsellor who has worked across London in a variety of schools since 2010.

I follow UPCA Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

Qualifications & experience

I hold a Master of Science in Counselling and Psychotherapy from University of Roehampton. I remain committed to personal and professional development, and attend clinical supervision weekly. I am also involved in an Advanced Practitioner Program focusing on critical existential-analytic psychotherapy, at University of Roehampton. I am member of the Universities Psychotherapy and Counselling Association (UPCA). I also hold a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, from University of Connecticut (USA).

I have provided counselling and therapy at five different secondary schools across London. I previously worked as a counsellor, and case holder, at a drug and alcohol service in West London, working both with clients in recovery, and carers. I also provided counselling and therapy at a charity in Elephant and Castle, for several years. I have been working with vulnerable yet inspirational young people with behavioural, educational, and emotional difficulties since 2010.

Appointments & fees

  • Fees average £65 per hour. I also offer a limited amount of online therapy sessions.
  • Sessions last for 50 minutes and are usually arranged weekly.
  • I offer both long and short-term therapy.

Therapeutic approach

Almost all therapists and counsellors agree that the relationship between therapist and client is the most important factor in determining progress in the therapy. I am no different and therefore suggest having a first, no obligation meeting, to see how it feels to work together.

I encourage you to remember that psychotherapy/counselling can be quite an endeavour, and at times is difficult and challenging. However, I feel this process is reenergising rather than tiring, and that the rewards of therapy are life-long. If you are reading this perhaps you recognise the importance of having a safe place to talk and you are ready to start, or to continue your therapeutic journey.

My practice is informed by psychoanalysis starting with Freud, the person-centred approach through the work of Carl Rogers, and by continental philosophical thinkers such as Emmanuel Levinas.
