There are many different reasons that bring people to counselling or therapy - relationship difficulties, a difficulty finding happiness, low self-esteem. Essentially, people come to therapy with questions, and together we look for the answers through a relationship that is confidential and non-judgemental.
As a psychodynamic psychotherapist, I guide you towards a deeper understanding of yourself, what you are struggling with and help you find a way to change and live a more fulfilling and satisfying life. This kind of psychotherapy looks at how the problem you are facing today is linked to your past experiences; it explores what unconscious processes lay behind your present challenges and helps you understand and overcome it.
One of the areas I focus on is people's relationship with money. Money comes up in therapy in many shapes and forms: people may find they have an uncontrollable drive to amass wealth without feeling fulfilment, they might have experienced financial trauma they find hard to move on from, they may struggle with overspending or experience frequent money conflicts in their relationships with others. I use a psychotherapeutic approach to helping you understand and manage your emotional relationship with money to transform your approach to it.
I hold degrees in Psychology, Psychotherapy and an MBA from London Business School. I lived in nine different countries across three continents and have worked in both the private and public sectors, including the NHS. This experience has enriched me with exposure to a wide range of cultures and challenges. My experience also reflects a diverse client base. I have worked with people from the financial services, public sector, and creative professions.
My practice is based in South Bank. I also offer video sessions for those who prefer that.
