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.

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.
