Psychotherapy in Hackney and Islington

Welcome and thanks for visiting.

I offer Core-Process Psychotherapy sessions in Hackney and Islington close to Central London. I am registered with the UKCP as a senior trainee psychotherapist completing the clinical year of a four year MA at the Karuna Institute, Devon.

Benefits of Therapy

Psychotherapy can offer us the space we need to really explore difficulties in life that we haven't felt it possible to share with others. Being supported by a therapist with whom we feel safe can help us to find out and understand more about ourselves and offer us reassurance, support and insight into the difficulties we face in life. It can help us to find deeper clarity, satisfaction and connection with ourselves and others.

Core-Process Psychotherapy

Core-Process Psychotherapy combines traditional depth psychotherapy with Buddhist understanding of the mind-body connection. The therapist includes awareness of our bodies in the therapy, and this can help to create a present, centred and grounded space in which the client can explore their process in the sessions.

Core-Process Psychotherapy draws on psychodynamic and integrative approaches to therapy and is relational form of therapy. This means that it is not a cold or distant form of relationship, but one where the therapist is impacted by what the client brings and is open to explore their relationship with the client in a welcoming and supportive therapy. My experience is that exploring the therapist client relationship can help to deepen the work that can be done and the level of trust in the sessions.

Areas I Work With

I work with a range of different issues that include working to develop more autonomy and independence in relationships, working with intrusive thoughts and issues from childhood that impact on our relationships. In addition to this I work with a broad range of general issues including stress, anxiety and depression, relational difficulties and issues of intimacy, trauma, loss and bereavement, self-limiting patterns, a addiction issues, intercultural and identity issues and some mental health difficulties.


I offer free consultations in private and comfortable therapy rooms, where we can decide if it feels right for us to work together.

The therapy rooms I use are located close to Hackney Central and Highbury and Islington Stations and are within easy reach of Central London. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
