Professional profile:

I am a qualified individual and couple psychotherapist, offering both short term and long term psychotherapy.  I have trained at Tavistock Relationships, a well-reputed institute for psychotherapy and relationship counselling, where I also worked as a Visiting Clinician and Assessor.

Starting therapy can be an exciting yet daunting process.  You may have a lot of questions or feel trepidation at the idea of embarking on it. What I hope to provide you with is a safe, empathetic and non-judgemental space where we can begin to explore these anxieties and work towards reducing conflict, fostering curiosity and building self-awareness. I specialise in the psychodynamic model, with the focus on making sense of past experiences and understanding its effect on the present.

The below are some of the areas that I work with:

  • Difficulty Building Lasting Relationships
  • Breakdown of Communication
  • Anxiety, Depression, Grief & Loss
  • Lack of Intimacy
  • Pre Marital Counselling
  • Infertility & Trouble Conceiving
  • Parenting Difficulties
  • Affairs & Betrayals
  • Life Transitions
  • Separation & Divorce

I also have experience working with couples and individuals from different ethnic communities and welcome clients from cross-cultural, mixed race and immigrant backgrounds.


I offer both onsite and online therapy. Telephone sessions are also available for individuals.

Relationship and Couple Therapy

Sometimes relationships may undergo periods of stress and it may feel as if they are a source of unhappiness or confusion. Relationship counselling helps couples and individuals explore problematic patterns that may be affecting their quality of life. The problem may be recurring or after an event or series of events.

We work with a wide range of couples from different cultural backgrounds and sexual orientations

Psychosexual Therapy

Psychosexual therapy is an integrative approach which combines talking therapy with behavioural therapy. It can take place on an individual basis or with a partner. It will involve an assessment of the sexual issue (including any associated medical factors) whilst exploring further how the relationship, sexual development and personal history may be affecting the sexual issue. Behavioural exercises may be discussed in the sessions, which will then be carried out at home to help the individual or couple address their sexual difficulties.
