background

About

I am an experienced UKCP registered Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, working in Stoke Newington, N16. I have many years experience working online too – a necessity for now, sadly. If you are reading this, I’m guessing you are feeling something that is getting in the way of how you would like to be. Maybe you are sad, angry, anxious, low or struggling to like yourself. Maybe you are feeling ok, but you would like to feel better about yourself, or improve your relationship with other people in your life – such as a partner, family members, friends or colleagues at work.

I am convinced that talking about your concerns with someone trained to hear them, and respond to them, in a particular way, can be very helpful. It won’t ‘cure’ you, or cancel out a painful past, but I know that it may well help you to move on with greater ease, and even pave the way for further positive change.

As well as my private practice, I have worked for the NHS, in Higher Education and for charitable counselling services, which means I have had the privilege of working with a number of presenting issues with people from many walks of life. I also supervise therapists, write, support academic work in the field of pregnancy loss, and examine communication skills of senior doctors. Every day I run and meditate.

I have a Masters Degree in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy (Minster Centre), and many moons ago I began my professional life teaching, and then practising law. I have a BA Hons Juris (Oxford University), and an LLM (London University).
