My Approach to Helping

Life often presents us with challenges and each one of us develops their own ways of dealing with adversities. Sometimes, however, we might feel ‘lost’, incongruent with how we would like to be, how we would like to relate with others and engage with life. Our difficulties may present themselves in different forms and we often use words such as depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, panic, phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, trauma, relationship difficulties, sexuality concerns, grief and loss to describe our experience.

When feeling vulnerable and uncertain of how to go about with the challenges you are faced with, the need for support is greater. Therapy is a process through which you are helped to develop your self-awareness and make use of your unique self and inner wisdom to overcome your difficulties and engage with life in a way that you find most meaningful.

Vital in this therapeutic journey, is the presence of an empathic and experienced therapist. As a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Accredited EMDR Practitioner, I have helped people with a range of emotional and psychological difficulties in different clinical settings (NHS and private), always tailoring my therapeutic knowledge to meet the needs of each person.

More Info About My Practice

I currently work in private practice. My clinical experience is diverse, as I have worked in a Community Mental Health Team, a Specialist Psychotherapy Department, a Community Health Psychology Service and a University Counselling Centre. Within the clinical settings I have worked, I have offered integrative, EMDR, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), person-centred, psychodynamic, and family-systemic therapy within different session frameworks (short-term and long-term). I have provided my services to people with a wide range of emotional and psychological difficulties, as well as to individuals who have wanted to engage in therapy to promote their personal development.

I have also worked as a Psychology Lecturer for the University of East London and Visiting Psychology Lecturer for the City University of London.
