I am a registered psychotherapist with a private practice in Hampstead. Offering a space which is safe and non-judgemental. Where we can explore together what is happening with you and in your life that has left you feeling anxious, depressed, sad, angry, low in self-esteem, empty or distressed. Through working together we will try to understand how these feelings are manifesting in your life – be it through addiction, social anxiety, eating disorders, discomfort in your body image, destructive relationships. And endeavour to bring you to a place where you feel comfort and understanding in and of your self.

My main areas of experience are in addiction, destructive relationships, anxiety, OCD, low self esteem and eating disorders. These are all behaviours that uncover deeper issues of what is going on. By looking at them together we can get you to a place where they don’t control your life.

My style of working is to listen to you in order to gain an understanding of your experience of the world, what your issues are that may be hindering you or causing difficulty in your life. And working together to find a way of acknowledging and understanding them so that you may find it possible to live the life you want to live.

About Me

 

IMG_6398
I am a UKCP and BACP registered psychotherapist working in private practice in Hampstead. My approach to therapy is Existential-phenomenological although much of my training has been integrative which means it incorporates Psychoanalytic theory and Person-Centred approaches which have all formed my understanding of the therapeutic process.

You can read more about Existential Psychotherapy here http://existentialanalysis.org.uk/about-the-sea/about-existential-analysis/

I am also an EMDR therapist in training so am confident in using these techniques to reduce distress. EMDR can be extremely useful for helping with phobias, public speaking, and social anxiety.

My style of working is to listen to you in order to gain an understanding of your experience of the world, what your issues are that may be causing difficulty in your life. And working together to find a way of acknowledging and understanding them so that you may find it possible to live the life you want to live.

Before becoming a therapist I worked for 14 years in the fashion industry. As well as my private practice I have also worked in an alcohol dependence service and with victims of domestic abuse. So although clients have come to me with all sorts of issues I do have specialist experience with addiction and relationship trauma and difficulties.

FAQs

Q. HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?

A. This can vary depending on what you’re going through and what you’d like to get out of it. Psychotherapy tends to be a long term process of up to a year or more, especially if you would like long term effects or substantial change to take place. Ultimately the decision to end therapy will always be yours, but we can work together to determine what might be best for you.

Q. HOW LONG ARE THE SESSIONS?

A. Sessions are either 50 minutes long.

Q. HOW OFTEN WILL SESSIONS BE?

A. Sessions can be weekly or twice a week.

Q. WHAT HAPPENS IN A SESSION?

A. Typically sessions are the two of us talking in a room. This will be a safe and confidential space where you will not be disturbed and your privacy is maintained. You can talk about whatever you like, for example; what brings you to therapy, what you’d like to get out of coming, difficulties you may be having.

Q. WILL WHAT I SAY BE CONFIDENTIAL?

A. All sessions will be confidential. The only person I will discuss the sessions with is my clinical supervisor, which is a requirement of professional practice. However, I will not reveal your full name or any other identifying details that may identify you or others. Any notes that I will take will be anonymous and safely stored in accordance with GDPR guidelines. The only reason that I may break confidentiality would be if I felt that your life or another’s life is in danger, or that there are serious child protection concerns. Unless it was not possible, I would always talk to you first and involve you in the decision to break confidentiality. 

Q. IS THERE A CANCELLATION POLICY?

A. Once an agreement has been made there is a cancellation policy of 1 weeks notice. Cancellations short of this for any reason will be charged at the full fee unless we can find an alternative time in the same week to meet. There is no fee charged if the session is cancelled by myself.

Q. IS THERE PARKING OR PUBLIC TRANSPORT ACCESS?

A. The Hampstead Northern Line Underground station is a couple of minutes walk away. It is about a 10 minute walk from the overground Finchley & Frognal station. There is on street parking in pay-and-display bays which are free before 9am and after 6pm.
