About me


What I offer as individual therapy has evolved into an approach which quickly gets to the heart of your issues; it offers a range of ways of working to try to accurately match your need and in the most effective and time efficient way.

I currently offer Relational Psychotherapy, AF-EMDR Therapy and separately Couples Therapy in East London.

My approach is both friendly and warm. Therapy tends to be refreshingly brief and, as far as possible, an enjoyable/rewarding experience, particularly when long standing issues have been completely resolved.

AF-EMDR is a highly effective treatment often used to treat depression, anxiety, pain management and the effect of painful memories from our past. It is a proven technique to overcome the legacy of abuse from childhood or deeply upsetting experiences which have remained stored in the system for instance the effects of being “othered” or “childhood bullying” which can affect your ability to fully enjoy life.
Often the trauma is so severe that it disrupts the normal functioning of the brain and leads to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in which flashbacks, panic or general discomfort are so invasive that everyday life becomes unbearable. Experiences such as war, childhood trauma, surgical trauma, accidents and other deeply distressing events can be processed and released during an EMDR session.

As a result of the process clients report that they gain new and clearer perspectives on themselves and their life situation as their self-acceptance and value in relation to the world begins to emerge. Many of the people who attend my sessions have strong emotions and feel that they cannot cope. Through working together in a supportive environment necessary solutions emerge to gain the clarity and freedom to move forward in life.

Your concerns are as unique as you are and some of the areas people approach me for help with are: • couples counselling with heterosexual and same sex couples • relating to others in close relationships and social situations • breaking unwanted patterns of behaviour that are destructive or keep us stuck • developing greater self-esteem and confidence in expressing ourselves • working with feelings of loneliness and isolation • working with the LGBT community
