I am an accredited Existential Psychotherapist and Counselling Psychology Doctorate holder.
My therapeutic practise arises from a life-long interest in philosophy, social sciences and the humanities with particular attention to the nature of society and the nature of individual subjectivity.
Consequently I believe that the psychotherapeutic enterprise offers radical new possibilities for an individual to understand where they position themselves in their life and how that position can be changed. It offers a real opportunity for a client to put everything on the table and to take seriously the creativity and power that is our birthright as human beings. This is best achieved through an honest and compassionate space where one can talk about and, therefore, think about oneself in a new way.
I have worked in the NHS for 6 years in a range of services, including Guys and St Thomas’s Psycho-oncology service and North Hackney Community Mental Health Team. I am LGBT-friendly and specialise in anxiety and trauma disorders, disability, employment and education difficulties, loss and bereavement, self-esteem and relationship difficulties.
