Life can sometimes seem harder to manage than usual. Sometimes it might even become overwhelming. Maybe you’ve been feeling like you need to talk to someone, but it’s been hard to find the right person.

Therapy offers a confidential and consistently unthreatening space that you can use to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. By talking about your experiences within the safety of a compassionate, non-judgemental relationship, you’ll have the opportunity to increase your self-understanding and make more satisfying and constructive decisions about your life and relationships.


Psychotherapy with Oliver

The cornerstone of my practice is humility. I cannot know you better than you know yourself, and I believe that you have the inner resources to find the solutions you need to your own unique problems and challenges. My priority is to be alongside you at every step of the way as you connect with those resources, not to impose my own direction or agenda on the work. That means I’m unlikely to give you advice or tell you what to do, but by listening, genuinely accepting, and even, from time to time, gently challenging you, I hope that you will start finding it easier not only to listen to and accept yourself, but also to start managing your life in healthier ways.

Sharing your most personal thoughts and private experiences can be daunting and it’s important that you find the right therapist. That’s why I offer a free 45-minute introductory session so that you can decide whether you feel okay talking to me. If we decide to work together, I’ll probably suggest an initial commitment of six sessions. This is a realistic place to start exploring what you want to do in therapy. Your needs might change from session to session, but during this time we can collaboratively assess whether you would like to continue. Some people find six sessions are enough for them, while others prefer a longer-term or open-ended relationship.

If you’re ready to book an initial session to start discussing your reasons for seeking therapy, drop me a line or call me using the details below. I’m also happy to arrange a 15-minute phone call in case you have any questions before committing to meeting me.

My training qualifications and experience

I hold a postgraduate Clinical Diploma in Person-Centred Psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute, a leading specialist training institute for humanistically-informed psychotherapy and counselling based in Ealing, West London. I hold a BA (Hons) in philosophy from The University of Leeds and I have completed an MSc in Contemporary Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Applications (Metanoia/Middlesex University – award pending). I also attend regular additional training to support my ongoing professional development.

I have worked at therapy centres across London, with adults from a diverse range of backgrounds facing different challenges – this includes bereavement and losses of all kinds, relationship challenges, questions concerning identity and sexuality, stress, anxiety, obsessive, intrusive or paranoid thoughts, compulsive behaviours, loneliness, low moods, depression, hearing voices, work difficulties, health related issues, post-traumatic stress, career challenges, and struggles with addiction. I also work with clients who want to use therapy as a means of personal development.

I have undertaken research into the experience of metaphor in psychotherapy, and I also have a particular interest in experiences of otherness, migration and exile, lack of meaning and purpose, lost connections, spirituality, and creativity.

I am a full clinical member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, (UKCP), follow their Code of Ethics and Professional Practice and am subject to their Complaints & Conduct Process. I also follow Metanoia’s Code of Clinical Ethics & Professional Conduct and attend regular supervision to support me in my clinical work.
