With a formative training in existential psychotherapy, my therapeutic practice takes the form of philosophical inquiry and reflexive, embodied dialogue.
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.
Therapeutic practice is enriched through collaborative inquiry and action. Alongside my psychotherapeutic work, I have also taken teaching and supervisory roles at Hackney Community College and The Minster Centre and am grateful for the ongoing conversations with colleagues and students that this work affords me. I am involved with initiatives and campaigns that centre social justice amidst therapeutic practice. A writing practice is essential to nourishing my ongoing work and research; I have published in international journals and book collaborations. I am currently undertaking PhD research with the Department of Psychosocial Studies at Birkbeck, University of London, exploring the relationship between feminist psychotherapy and post-capitalist desire.
My therapeutic work is 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.
