About Me

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor working in East London. I work from an Integrated approach so I can ensure I am providing individualized care and support for the person I am working with. The most important thing to me is providing a warm, open and non-judgemental space where the person can feel free to explore what they need to and move toward their own growth and healing.

We all experience pain that stems from the parts of ourselves or the things we have gone through that have created immense shame. It is important to me to be able to provide the space where a person can feel safe enough to explore and share these parts of themselves and learn to bring and feel compassion to these places and move forward.

I am able to work with adults and adolescents (aged 13-18) and am able to provide short and long term therapy, both in person as well as via Skype.

 

EXPERIENCE

I have been working as a counsellor for over ten years and have had success working with a broad range of people with different backgrounds, challenges and experiences. From 2009- 2016 I worked with young people aged 13-26 and parents in a substance use and addiction outpatient treatment setting in Vancouver, Canada. There I provided both one to one and group therapy and took on a leadership role from 2014-2016 before moving to London.

I Moved to London in 2016 and have been working as a specialist trauma counsellor with women and girls who have experienced any form of sexual or domestic violence. I continue to work with this organization alongside my private practice.

I have Masters in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University where I gained knowledge and experience around utilizing Cognitive Behavioural Based Therapies, Humanistic Approaches and Psychodynamic Therapy. Since completing my Masters I have participated in training in Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness Based and Self Compassion Focused therapy and continue to prioritize professional development.
