With a formative training in existential psychotherapy, my therapeutic practice takes the form of philosophical inquiry and reflexive, embodied dialogue. My pronouns are she/her.
I trained and qualified as a psychotherapist at Regent’s University School of Psychotherapy & Psychology in London and have been working since 2010 in private practice and within organisations, both with adults and adolescents. I have been fortunate to have worked as a psychotherapist within communities that have inspired and developed my therapeutic practice and approach, including The Psychosis Therapy Project and St. Joseph's Hospice. In 2018, I founded Gaia Therapy Project – a low cost psychotherapy and counselling practice based within the community of Hackney City Farm in East London.
Research and writing is a vital and continuous aspect of my therapeutic practice, manifesting through teaching and supervisory roles at Hackney Community College, The Minster Centre and, most recently, with Free Association Inc., alongside a number of published works in both international journals and book collaborations. My work explores the intersections between psychotherapy, philosophy and social justice. Currently I am undertaking PhD research in the Department of Psychosocial Studies at Birkbeck, University of London on feminist psychotherapy and post-capitalist desire.
My therapeutic work is further enriched and supported through a committed practice in the Zen tradition; I am active within the Zen community, both on and off the meditation cushion.
