I’m a psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor working in Hackney. I offer both open-ended and short-term therapy.
We can all experience times in our life when we feel stuck, frustrated, challenged or distressed. Often these challenges bring up feelings from the past which impact on current relationships. Therapy allows you the space to explore and bring awareness to your patterns of behaving and relating to yourself and others.
Starting therapy can be a daunting process and I offer a confidential, non-judgmental space for you to explore whatever it is that brings you to therapy. The relationship that develops between us becomes an important part of understanding other relationships in your life.
I work with clients on a wide range of issues including relationship difficulties, low mood, anxiety, trauma, feeling life has lost meaning and purpose, bereavement, depression, identity and self-esteem issues.
My approach is psychodynamic, based on an understanding that early experience and past relationships are significant to how we relate to ourselves and others in the present day. I aim to work with both the unconscious and conscious components of experience.
I have worked as a psychotherapist within the NHS. I have also worked in the public, charity and legal sectors. I have experience working with clients of diverse ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and religion.
Feel free to contact me on 07788884020 or [email protected] to arrange an initial consultation session. It is often helpful to meet for one or two consultation sessions to discuss your particular needs and to decide how to move forward.
There is a fixed fee of £65 for the consultation, payable in cash on the day. If after the consultation we decide to work together, an ongoing fee will be discussed and agreed between us. This can be between £50 to £75 dependent of your financial situation.
I offer some low-fee places for full-time students and the unemployed.
