I am an Existential/Integrative Psychotherapist. My work is informed by Existential philosophy, Psychoanalytic and Humanistic theory. What this means is, alongside my clients, I look to the past, and considerations of the future, for a greater understanding of how we are in the world today.
Alongside private practice, I work as a psychotherapist with charities concerned with the needs of homelessness, social isolation and social reintegration.
Having initially trained to Masters level (Integrative Psychotherapy) at Regent's University, London, I furthered my training to obtain an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy, also at Regent's University. I am a member of, and abide by the ethical working practices of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am also a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Please feel free to get in touch for an informal no obligation chat should you have any questions.
I look forward to hearing from you.
THERAPY... AN INVESTMENT IN SELF
"Midway this way of life we're bound upon,
I woke to find myself in a dark wood,
where the right road was wholly lost and gone."
Each of us experiences being in the world differently. We all come from different places, not only geographically,
but emotionally and psychologically. It is what makes us unique, but it is also what can, at times, make us feel isolated or lost, not knowing how to move forward.
Psychotherapy offers a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space in which we can explore whatever issues you may have that you feel stop you from experiencing life to your own fullest potential.
All sessions take place at the same time on the same day and last for 50 minutes. I see clients for as few as six weeks, to many months or years, depending on the individual requirements.
What can Psychotherapy Help with?
Psychotherapy can give us a greater understanding of who we are and how we respond to the world around us, bringing potential of a pathway from crisis to relief.
There are many reasons for seeking therapy, including;
Problems with confidence/self esteem
LGBTQ+ related issues
Problems with anger
Abuse (current and/or past)
Contemplating meaning in life
THERAPY AND CORONAVIRUS
The UK has been in varying degrees of lockdown or social-distancing due to the coronavirus for over a year. During this time many of us have struggled to cope with such radical changes to our way of being in the world. We may have been brought to question aspects of our lives that once seemed so certain. For some there is grief for those lost, but for many there is a grieving for a way of being that is no longer possible under such prolonged restrictions.
Therapy can help with such adjustments. I can offer a space in which together, but led by you, we can explore whatever it is that you may be experiencing.
I am able to meet with you across a variety of virtual platforms, including Skype, Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp. While therapy online is different to face-to-face therapy, I have found it to be no less effective. However, if you have any particular questions or concerns about how it might be to start therapy online please do call or send a mail.
