London, United Kingdom
In 2008 I qualified as an Existential and Humanistic psychotherapist from the University of West London. Additionally I hold a BSc in Psychology and an MA in Psychosocial Studies and a Certificate in Bereavement Counselling. Over the years I have worked with various charities in the area of Children's Rights and as a Psychotherapist. I work psychotherapeutically with teenagers and adults offering both short-term and long-term interventions, tailored to individual needs.
My approach is primarily Existential, however it is informed by other therapeutic approaches such as Gestalt, Person Centred and Psychoanalysis.
The starting point of existential therapy is the experience of the client; this means that I focus on your unique experience of yourself and the world, and your meaning-making processes. Existential analysis is concerned with the human condition and how we choose to approach the problems, dilemmas and experiences that we encounter and how to become aware and change the patterns in our lives and thinking that have become obstructive. Existential psychotherapy is a relational approach which means that it examines thoroughly our relationship patterns with ourselves (our bodies, lived experiences), others and the world around us. The core objective of Existential Analysis is to elevate our awareness, enabling us to make informed decisions that lead to living an authentic life.
When appropriate I incorporate body work to facilitate trauma healing. Furthermore, I use inner child work to help clients become aware of their internal dialogues, comprehend their archetypes, and foster healthier self-relations.
I work with a wide array of issues, including but not limited to: depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, narcissistic abuse, identity struggles, relationships, bereavement and attachment issues.
As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I adhere to their Code of Ethics and Conduct and regularly attend Professional Development courses to refine and develop my skills as well as attending regular clinical supervision.
