As a UKCP psychotherapist and supervisor, I have developed my own integrative approach over the years, bringing together cognitive and somatic methods to provide effective treatment for a wide variety of clients.

I have a strong belief that psychotherapy can help draw out our hidden strengths and resources. I have found working with the body - alongside verbal therapy - to be an effective way to uncover solutions to our problems, often in direct and surprising ways.

I offer an intial session to clarify what you are looking for from therapy, and whether my approach is right for you.

I provide psychotherapy and supervision online or face-to-face in Chiswick and Kensal Rise, West London
