Before starting my counselling and psychotherapy practice, I worked as a corporate lawyer for almost a decade in international law firms and financial institutions in London and abroad. I can relate to lawyers and corporate business professionals, having personally experienced the culture for myself. I empathise and relate to corporate environments' unique stresses and demands.
I offer individual counselling and psychotherapy for young adults, adults, business professionals and lawyers, in-person at my practice rooms in London Bridge and Tunbridge Wells or online.
My counselling and psychotherapy is open and empathic, a confidential space that is private and peaceful and where you can feel supported. You'll gain a new perspective on what's going on in your life and feel more able to understand yourself better, and start to make different choices that can benefit your life. You won’t have to face issues alone.
My style of counselling and psychotherapy is psychodynamic: our sessions may involve exploring past history and patterns of relating that are unconscious. Our childhood experiences affect our current experiences and expectations of relationships and situations in ways we are unaware of.
As your therapist, I encourage you to dive into problematic relationship patterns, behaviours, and beliefs. It helps you engage in self-reflection and self-examination. Gaining awareness and insight are central parts of the process. The complexity of our feelings and emotions, and the ability to experience them in the work with me, is also a crucial component.
I work collaboratively and engage with you deeply, listening carefully, enquiring, and thinking. I have an artistic sensibility and sometimes draw upon creativity as part of the therapeutic process. Working together, we gain insight into your unique situation.
During your journey, it's much more about understanding and gaining greater awareness, which leads to change, whether large or small - you start to feel more in control and empowered. It's a privilege and so rewarding to see my work have a positive impact.
