I am a London based UKCP Accredited and BACP Registered psychotherapist working with individuals and couples.
I have a BA in Psychology and an MSc in Psychological Therapies. I am in the process of completing a doctorate programme in Existential Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I have been practising since 2011 in various organisations in London, such as Imece Women’s Centre, NHS East London Foundation Trust Cognitive Analytical Team, Centre For Better Health, as well as my private practice.
I have specialised in treating trauma using different techniques such as EMDR (Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing), and Existential Psychotherapy. I am also trained for Cognitive Analytical Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy, all integrated into an existential/humanistic framework. Throughout the years I found out that the integrative, tailor-made approach works wonders especially dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, trauma-related symptoms, phobias, relationship issues and various psychological/psychosomatic difficulties.
I also work with couples and families. I am trained in Gottman Couples Therapy (Level 2). I use Gottman Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy techniques when I work with couples.
I offer online sessions on Skype and Zoom as well as face to face sessions.
I am a recognised practitioner by health insurers Axa, Aviva and Vitality.
According to BACP’s (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) definition; ‘Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their wellbeing.’
