My Approach

As a psychotherapist and a counsellor in West Hampstead, Central London and online who uses Relational Gestalt Psychotherapy and Humanistic Counselling to work with clients, I take extreme care to give you dedicated space of loving kindness, and understanding. I will always be mindful of your struggle and support you fully on your journey towards expanding your awareness and becoming who you truly are.

I believe that human nature is inherently good and everyone has the potential to find their own answers to their problems.

I aim to support you to be fully transparent, to explore your feelings and to speak openly. In my capacity as your therapist I envisage to offer you empathy, congruence, to support you to be open and authentic, to accept you as you are.

Your well-being is at the core of my work. Like sunflowers, we have an innate tendency to turn towards energy and light. Sometimes we lose sight of this. I am passionate about supporting clients to unlock that skill again – to increase their presence, attunement with others, and rediscover what gives them life and what life gives them.

As a Gestalt Relational therapist I will support you to explore the role relationships play in the shaping of your daily experiences. Together we will attempt to understand patterns appearing in your thoughts and feelings toward yourself and toward others.

Strong and fulfilling relationships with others can help maintain emotional well-being,reduce emotional distress, especially when distress occurs as a result of relational concerns.

Who Do I Work With?

I work with adults of all genders, sexual orientations, and ethnic backgrounds. I have experience working with people in various professions, such as: education, the arts, health, finance, law, and business. I also have expertise with LGBTQIA+ matters.
Working with couples is another significant part of my practice. In couple psychotherapy people experience that to be in relation to another, implies to accept and to be accepted, to be listened and to listen and to suspend judgment, as a way to co-create new relational opportunities.

Initial Consultation

To make sure you are comfortable with me and get a sense that I’m the right counsellor and psychotherapist for you, I offer a free initial 30-minute consultation, with no obligation to have further sessions if it doesn’t feel right. This is your chance to speak freely about the problems you are facing; you also don’t have to go into detail if you aren’t ready to do so. I will explain a little bit more about how I will work with you during this call.

How Can Counselling and Psychotherapy Help You?

“Presence is our openness to the unfolding of possibilities. Attunement is how we focus our attentionson others and take their essenceinto our own inner world.”
Daniel Siegel

I am here to support you in your journey towards rediscovering the essence of your own inner world. We are all equipped to thrive, but don’t always know how, and counselling and psychotherapy help you on that journey towards self-discovery, self-appreciation, and love towards yourself and others. It helps you discover who you really are and how to build long-lasting relationships with others
Our sessions together are about sharing thoughts, emotions, and feelings, seeing life through a more compassionate, inclusive andkind lens, to learn how to be less judgmental of your difficulties and impasses and becoming less fearful of change. My role is to help you get closer to your core self, to accept – and not supress – who you are. To help with this process, I am extremely conscious of attunement, which means truly listening to you in a non-judgemental way, understand and supportyour needs to reach a better place.

Supporting Diversity and Uniqueness

Valuing diversity in every form and supporting equal opportunities for all genders, races, and sexualities is a core aspect of my work as a counsellor and clinical psychotherapist and a counsellor in West Hampstead, Central London and online. We are all different, and, whoever we are, should be celebrated, seen, and valued. That is why I always take a strictly affirmative, intersectional approach to the clients I work with.
