About me

I am a qualified and accredited (MBACP Accred.) Senior Psychotherapist and Specialist Counsellor (specialising in Trauma following sexual violence and rape) with a Masters degree in Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling.

�"When you are in the middle of a story it isn't a story at all, but only a confusion; a dark roaring, a blindness, a wreckage of shattered glass and splintered wood; like a house in a whirlwind, or else a boat crushed by the icebergs or swept over the rapids, and all aboard powerless to stop it. It's only afterwards that it becomes anything like a story at all. When you are telling it, to yourself or to someone else." M Atwood (1996)

Your story: it matters. isn't over yet;

I am grounded, therapeutically agile and deeply compassionate. I am Human first, therapist second � on a level with clients, not a pedestal. I bring a wealth of lived experiences that inform my practice and allows me to support people from a place of knowing, not just from my training (although I have that too).

As a therapist, I have an incredibly privileged insight into the paradoxes of human nature. I make weekly journeys to the greatest depths of human trauma: death, infertility, infidelity and depression, as well as the seemingly smaller moments of pain: a crush we might have on another that goes unnoticed, or feelings of jealousy and resentment towards a close friend.

I have acclimatised myself to these things not just by reading books and studying, but by knowing my own nature and confronting my own shadows, the complicated, painful and embarrassing aspects of myself that are collectively relegated into a murky puddle of shame within our culture.

Because of this, clients can share anything and everything with me - and I will meet it with curiosity, compassion and care.

A good therapist offering a combination of empathy and challenge, both a gentle hand and a challenge, will always help us to return to a place of balance when we come up against it all. I am, unconditionally, on the side of my clients. I've got your back, and I am here to help you navigate the things we so often find hard: trusting others, coping with our emotions, communicating effectively, understanding ourselves, honouring our potential, feeling relatively authentic, confident and unashamed and everything else we encounter from birth to death.

My clinical work has been within the NHS (The Havens, a sexual assault referral centre based within King's College Hospital),the prison service, detention centres and various mental health and wellbeing organisations.

Additionally, I was also a Staff Trauma Counsellor at the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust . I worked as part of the Trust's staff support service known as CONTACT and joining a team of professionals supporting the Trust's wellbeing response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

I am now working at Help for Heroes , an excellent organisation that supports ex veterans and their families, as their Senior Counsellor.

I completed a post-graduate certificate in Trauma at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust in 2017 following my MA studies.

Areas of interest

"When it comes to talking about trauma, we always walk the delicate line between too much and not enough, between what is too explicit and what is secretive, what is traumatizing and what is repressed and thus remains in its raw, wordless form. We are usually caught in that binary between the two extremes because when it comes to trauma, regulation is always a challenge.

Galit Atlas, Emotional Inheritance: A Therapist, Her Patients, and the Legacy of Trauma

What I have come to understand is that when someone experiences violence, their very sense of being is severed from the rest of life, fragmented, disconnected, amputated from the body of humanity.

I specialise in Trauma work and work currently with ex veterans and their families. In my previous role I worked with rape and sexual assault and the aftermath of trauma and PTSD.
