Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psychodynamic Counselling in Haggerston, Upminster, and Online

Your Place To Connect and Feel Safe

If you are feeling low, isolated, or find it difficult to share your feelings with people close to you for fear of being judged, I am here to offer completely confidential, compassionate cognitive behavioural therapy and psychodynamic counselling in Haggerston, Upminster, and online. My passion has always been to support people on their journey towards a place of greater peace and understanding. I have over a decade of experience in working with people of all ages and cultural backgrounds, creating a friendly, open therapeutic space for clients to work through their problems in a way that makes sense to them.

Whether you are struggling with something specific, like a bereavement, or just feel out of sorts and need a place to talk things through, feel free to give me a call and we can set up a free, no-obligation consultation over the phone, after which we can arrange our first full session of cognitive behavioural therapy and psychodynamic counselling in Haggerston, Upminster, and online at a time that suits you.


I know how hard it is to live with that constant sense of unease in your mind and body. It can feel like there is something weighing you down throughout the day, and my practice is a place for you to safely engage with these feelings and move past them. Over the years, I have worked with all kinds of anxiety, such as generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).


Many people experience depression in their lives, whether it’s clinical depression, post-natal depression, seasonal affective disorder, or depression related to bipolar disorder. Clients often believe that they will never be able to overcome these feelings, but I have worked with so many people to reach a better place over time. It isn’t easy, of course, but change is always possible, and I will be here to support you with professional guidance every step of the way.

Relationship Issues

My DIT therapy and psychodynamic counselling in Haggerston, Upminster, and online is also available to individuals struggling with relationships in their lives. This could involve romantic partners, family members, friends, or co-workers. We will look at the repeat relationship patterns in your life, exploring the emotional pain that comes up during these interactions and understanding why they occur in the first place and how they cause depression, low mood, and anxiety.

Work-Related Issues

The workplace can often be a challenging environment for a number of reasons, and my practice is a place to talk through any problems you might be facing. Many people are finding it difficult to acclimatise to returning to the office, while others have issues working from home, which can be extremely isolating. Perhaps you are facing specific issues like excessive pressure, workplace bullying, harassment, unrealistic deadlines, or feeling undervalued or inadequate, which can affect your ability to cope. No matter what your workplace issue might be, I give you the chance to speak freely and feel supported.

Low Self-Esteem

You might constantly worry about not being good enough, or feel like you are failing in some way, which can, over time, lead to more complex issues like anxiety and depression. Even those with a good career and social life battle with low self-esteem, due to the way we tend to base our worth around external achievements and relationships with others, so our focus will be on empowering you to remember and reconnect with your own intrinsic worth as an individual.


My service is also available to those who have experienced, or are continuing to experience, abuse of any kind, such as domestic violence, sexual abuse, coercive control, or verbal abuse. I know that talking about this subject is extremely difficult, but my practice is a completely safe, confidential space for you to process what has happened in your own way, and at your own pace, with me supporting you unconditionally throughout the process.

Coping With Illness

I also have experience in helping people manage the anxiety and/or depression that can arise as a result of long-term physical health conditions such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, IBS, COPD, cardio-vascular disease, diabetes, and cancer in remission, among others.
