About My Work
“I am a chartered counselling psychologist and registered psychotherapist in private practice in Canary Wharf in the Docklands of East London (E14). I am recognised by the UK's leading professional organisations for counselling and psychotherapy, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) as well the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists (UKCP) and I am a chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), the governing body for psychologists. In addition, I have a strong academic background and am a doctoral researcher on the links between childhood trauma and emotional difficulties in adulthood and I have collaborated with research teams at a leading children's charity and an NHS mental health trust on this.

I work with individuals and couples at my counselling and psychotherapy practice in Canary Wharf as well as by Skype. To make appointment times as convenient for you as possible, I can arrange them for an afternoon or evening to most suit your weekly routine. But before you make your first appointment, you might like have a free no-obligation conversation with me by Skype or over the phone. This way, you can find out more about me and ask questions before deciding to meet up.

I work generally with individuals facing common human struggles and couples wanting to resolve their difficulties. My clients come from a range of different backgrounds and are also diverse in culture, ethnicity and sexuality. We all go through rocky periods in our lives and therapy can help you smooth a way forward. Some examples of how therapy can help you move through difficulties include:
• Understanding what might be causing problems and repetitive patterns.
• Clarifying what direction you want to take in your life.
• Exploring problems with intimate relationships or family members.
• Overcoming trauma - be it from childhood or more recently.
• Coping with loss and bereavement.
• Managing workplace issues such as stress, bullying and career decisions.

In particular, I have worked extensively with bereavement, domestic violence and adult survivors of childhood abuse. In addition, examples of my experience include stress, identity issues, panic disorders, eating disorders and self-harm, anxiety and depression.

Some clients want to concentrate on current problems they are struggling to resolve on their own; and others have realised that the same old problems repeat and cycle in very familiar and destructive patterns. Some clients therefore want therapy for just a few sessions to help them through a difficult time; while others want to work longer term to tackle more deep-seated and long-standing difficulties.

The practice is a five-minute walk from Cabot Square, eight minutes from Canary Wharf Underground Station (Jubilee Line) and around 4 minutes from West India Quay and Westferry DLR stations. This is less than a 15-minute journey from London Bridge, Bank, Tower Hill, Greenwich and Stratford.”
My Story
“I combine my leaning towards academic accomplishment with a down-to-earth and approachable manner in working with clients. I have worked clinically in a number of settings and with clients from a variety of backgrounds and presenting difficulties. These settings have spanned hospital contexts, not-for-profit organisations as well as private practice. I currently work with leading insurance and Employee Assistance Programmes to meet the high-quality service demands of their corporate clients. I also accept GP referrals in Tower Hamlets and am experienced in working with a diversity of concerns. I am always pleased to hear from private individuals considering to start therapy and so I have endeavoured to make my practice as accessible as possible in terms of affordability, disability and diversity.

On a more personal note, I am South-African born and have been living in London for the previous 13 years. On relocating myself in the UK, I set about establishing dual career paths. Before dedicating my career to psychotherapy and psychology, I also worked in the pressurised world of high-profile not-for-profit organisations. The blend of my two cultural and professional backgrounds helps me bring a grounded and practical stance to what might seem like lofty and inaccessible psychological ideas.”
