About me

I am a Psychotherapist (UKCP accredited) working with individuals promoting mental wellbeing. My practice in Canary Wharf is a 3/4 min walk from West India Quay and Westferry DLR stations. I also offer sessions online/virtual via Zoom.

I will work with you to make meaning of your internal struggles to understand them better by identifying their root causes. This is a collaborative process where I will provide you with a safe, non-judgemental space to explore your inner world and presenting issues. I believe strongly that therapy is a two-way process between client and therapist.

Together we will design the therapeutic journey that is best suited for you. My role is to work with you to identify the most helpful shifts in thinking or behaviour to understand and often manage your feelings, and support you in the process of making changes. We may agree simple tasks or thinking to be done between sessions.

I have experience with and can help you to explore many conditions and concerns, including – but not limited to – low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, sexuality, intersectionality, identity, bereavement, grief, anger management, LGBTQI+/GSRD issues, couples and relationship difficulties. I have experience with mild level Personality Disorders such as Bipolar, Borderline, Obsessive Compulsive and Schizoid. I am trained in Transactional Analysis therapy and draw upon Psychodynamic and Relational models in my work. 

I am a member of the BACP. I have experience of working as a counsellor at MIND  (the UK’s largest mental health charity). I have also worked at a psychiatric hospital where l was part of a multidisciplinary team working with personality disorders providing complex care. 

I am also a leadership coach working with individuals and organisations. I have over 15 years of experience working in the corporate world in a senior management capacity. Over this time, I have gained tremendous insight into the world of leadership and management. I understand work related issues such as stress, performance anxiety, and managing teams. I also work as an executive coach on significant job related issues such as career counselling, redundancy, preparation for promotions and developing new leaders and managers.
