My Approach

As a person-centred psychotherapist, I view the work we do together as a collaborative relationship in which our focus will be on understanding what’s going on for you. 

When life feels challenging it can be helpful to have a supportive companion to explore these difficulties with while you search for meaning and sense. 

I work with clients to build a relationship of safety, warmth, trust and understanding, where it's possible to talk about thoughts, feelings and perceptions that might be difficult to address, and to consider ways forward.

Since it is you who knows what hurts and what problems are crucial, you will control the process, not just in your choice of me as your therapist, but also the direction of what we work on, the depth, and the pace. 

My role is not to offer advice or analysis of you and your situation. Rather I will listen carefully and respond with curiosity and interest as you explore your experiences. 

By coming to understand yourself, the situation you’re in, and your relationships better, you may find a sense of living more authentically, of perceiving your experiences more clearly, of starting to view yourself with more compassion and understanding, and to grow in ways that are more satisfying for you. 

What happens next?

If you get in touch, I’ll usually suggest a 50-minute introductory session so we can explore what's brought you to therapy and what you might like to get out of it. This might give you an idea of how it is for you to talk to me and to decide whether it will be helpful for you if we go on to work together. If we choose not to work together, there will be no charge for this initial session. 


If we go on to work together, there will be a £45 charge for the introductory session. Subsequent 50-minutes sessions will take place at a time and place agreed by us. We will also decide an ongoing session fee on a sliding scale between £65 and £85 that feels sustainable for you and the work you want to do. I maintain a small number of concessionary places – please get in touch for details.


I practice across three locations. All are safe and comfortable and offer a quiet space for us to work through whatever issues you might be facing. My Central London practice is five minutes from Oxford Circus/Bond Street stations, while in North London, my rooms are in Stroud Green (Crouch Hill, N4) – convenient for people near Archway, Crouch End, Finsbury Park and Highgate, and in Clerkenwell – close to Farringdon, King's Cross and Angel stations. 


I have experience working with people from a wide range of backgrounds facing unique challenges, difficulties and life experiences. 

In my private practice I work face-to-face and one-to-one with adults (18 and over) on an ongoing or time-limited basis. 

I hold a Clinical Diploma and an MSc in Contemporary Person-Centred Psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute in London. 

Besides my private practice, my clinical experience includes work at community-based counselling services across London where I’ve supported clients working through a wide range of issues. I also work with clients who want to use therapy as a means of personal development. 

I have a particular interest in experiences of otherness, humility, migration and exile, lack of meaning and purpose, lost connections, spirituality, and creativity, and have undertaken research into the experiencing of metaphor in psychotherapy which was published in Person-Centered & Experiential Psychotherapies in November 2023. 

As a full clinical member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), I follow the UKCP Code of Ethics and Professional Practice and am subject to their Complaints & Conduct Process. I also follow Metanoia's Code of Clinical Ethics & Professional Conduct and attend regular clinical supervision and additional professional training to support me in my work.
