I want to help you rediscover yourself. There are so many parts of our past and our present that can take us far from where and who we would like to be - I view one of the main goals of psychotherapy as helping to guide us back.
I work in an integrative way - this means I don’t subscribe to a single idea or theory that explains everything about what might cause our problems. Instead, I’m interested in how thinking about your life from a range of different perspectives and helping to re-connect the parts of you that might feel lost.
Therapy is a two-way process. Primarily my job is to listen and for us to connect - building a good working relationship together is the key to help you realise your potential and feel more connected to yourself.
My training as a psychotherapist has taken place at Birkbeck, University of London and the Metanoia Institute. I am currently completing a Masters degree in Integrative Psychotherapy. I am a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy and subscribe to its Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct
In addition to my private practice in Deptford and the City, I work two days a week at Waterloo Community Counselling, a Central London clinic that offers therapy for people on lower incomes and provides free counselling for asylum seekers and refugees.
What can I help you with?
Sometimes it’s easy to describe a problem you need help with, and sometimes it may be difficult to name precisely, other than wanting to feel differently. I can help with a range of problems such as:
low self esteem and confidence issues | depression | anxiety | stress | addiction | relationship issues with a partner, friends or family | recovery from abuse or other trauma | anger management | bereavement | sexuality | gender, sexual and relationship diversity | work and career-related issues.
I have particular experience in working with clients who identify as LGBTQ+ or who are exploring their sexuality and/or gender expression. I am a cisgender gay man and use he/him pronouns.
