I am here to provide a non-judgemental space for you to be heard and to help you understand yourself more deeply. I ask questions and offer interpretations and frameworks, as together we explore options and new perspectives.
I bring focussed attention and acceptance, structured support and therapeutic insight which allows you to identify your needs and find solutions to the challenges you are facing.
I propose an initial conversation to check the "fit" between us and for us to decide if we want to work together.
In our first full session, we will explore the key reasons you are seeking therapy at this point in your life. We will go on to set clear goals and time frames for our work together. Regular reviews will allow you to evaluate progress and for us to hone our approach so it has the most meaning and impact for you.
Clients come to me when they feel hopeless, misunderstood and stuck; they may be looking for a way to feel more connection and joy; they often know that life could and should be better for them, that their mental health could be stronger, but they just cannot get there on their own.
I work well with clients who have experienced grief and loss and those who are trying to find their place in a new life stage, as well as individuals who are impacted by shame and those seeking healing from past trauma. I have significant experience working with sexuality, gender identity and sexual behaviour; I have worked extensively with LGBTQ+ individuals and communities.
I work from the
Space to be You therapy rooms in Hackney, E8 4SA.
For stability, client focus and confidentiality, my preferred online platform is Zoom.
Being out in the green spaces of Victoria Park helps us feel more connected to the world around us.
I draw on other approaches that have been shown to help people break patterns and uncover perspectives that help us to drive change. I use techniques from different “schools” and models such as CBT, Gestalt and short-term psychodynamic therapy.
I value the role that psychoeducation plays in therapy – openly sharing models and frameworks with clients rather than perpetuating a sense of mystery around the process.
I have recently opened new clinical days on Wednesdays and Thursdays and have availability for zoom or walk & talk sessions in the morning and face to face sessions in the afternoon and early evening.
My fees are £80 for each fifty-minute counselling session.
I offer a £50 concession rate for a limited number of clients at any point.
