MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling, Regent’s University
I am trained as a psychotherapist and use a psychodynamic/existential approach. In addition to my work at the Koan Practise, I hold an honorary position in an NHS hospital and I attend to clients at a drug and addiction counselling service in London. I have also worked as a counsellor with Childline. I have experience in treating depression, anxiety, drug and alcohol addiction, sexuality, trauma, self‐harm and eating disorders.
People seek therapy for all kinds of reasons. Usually they feel there is something that is holding them back from living their life in a manner they seek. Talking with someone in a structured and safe environment can help people to recognize their feelings and address those issues. I provide a secure and confidential space for my clients to talk and express freely. I listen carefully and without judgement. I do not give advice, but instead help my clients in the exploration of their desires, conflicts, and relations with others. I give support as they reflect on life and what is causing their suffering. Through dialogue, I assist in making sense of one’s past and uncovering possibilities in one’s present. Therapy is a joint effort and, with mutual respect and trust, can bring about real change in a person’s life.
