I trained and qualified as a psychotherapist at Regent’s University School of Psychotherapy & Psychology and have been working since 2010 in private practice and within organisations, both with adults and adolescents. Trained in existential psychotherapy, I am inspired by the therapeutics of philosophy and believe deeply in the capacity of open, compassionate and contemplative dialogue to heal and transform. I continually develop and extend my psychotherapeutic work through further training in areas including group work, working with trauma and eco-psychology.
Currently, I work in private practice as both a psychotherapist and supervisor, I am the founder and Director of Gaia Therapy Project in East London and a faculty member of The Minster Centre, providing training and research supervision and teaching existential-humanistic approaches. I have been fortunate to have worked as a psychotherapist for some wonderful organisations that have inspired and developed my practice, including The Psychosis Therapy Project and St. Joseph's Hospice.
Commitment to thought and embodied enquiry is a vital and continuous aspect of my therapeutic practice and I have published contributions in both international journals and book collaborations. I am currently undertaking PhD research in with the Department of PsychoSocial Studies at Birkbeck University. I am also the Book Reviews Editor for Self & Society, the journal for the Association for Humanistic Psychology (AHPb).
I enrich my therapeutic work through a committed meditation practice in the Zen tradition, attending regular retreats, seminars and meditation groups to deepen and inspire my practice.
