I'm an existential therapist offering a warm and straightforward approach. I see people in-person in Richmond (UK), and worldwide using Zoom.
I’m currently writing up my doctoral research into how people heal their minds in everyday life – which includes reconnection with nature, journeys, and the use of creative processes such as talking, reading, writing, making, cooking, repairing and art. My own journey as a novelist brought me into practicing therapy, which is the most creative and engaged work I know. I divide my time equally between writing and therapy, and I work with around fifteen clients at any one time. I don't have a fixed approach – every client's world is completely different.
I have clinical experience in NHS and bereavement services, and I work with clients of all kinds in my private practice. My clients usually arrive because they want to evolve, or because they want to work through a difficulty. Most of us reach some kind of limit in our lives and need to talk about how to accept or move beyond it. And most of us reach dark or frightening points during our lives, too. Anxiety and depression, unhelpful thoughts and patterns, difficult relationships, loss, abuse, betrayal, anger, or a sense of being directionless or stuck are some of the reasons people get in touch.
Please email me with any questions or to book an initial consultation. I look forward to speaking with you.
