About this Service

Hello my name is Josephine and I am a Psychodynamic therapist registered with the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychologists).

I have a deep interest in exploring the roots of difficult feelings and behaviours. We often get stuck repeating patterns of thought and behaviour which can leave us feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. Therapy may help us notice these patterns and gain a deeper appreciation of how and why we acquire them. With this new found space, we can offer alternatives to ourselves in how we are able to acknowledge and respond to our distress.

Together we will begin uncovering unconscious processes which are likely to be showing up in your life. With this new found knowledge we can move forward in resolving difficult relationships and ways of being in the world.

I have worked with people from a range of cultural backgrounds and have extensive experience working in several diverse boroughs in London.

I have worked with people facing a wide range of issues including but not limited to:


Low mood & depression

Disordered eating

Bereavement and loss



Domestic abuse




Childhood and other trauma (including relational/attachment trauma, transgenerational trauma, sexual abuse, neglect, homelessness, torture/war/loss of home, loss of status/family, major life transitions, move from one country to another/culture to another)

My aim as a therapist is to be authentic and to communicate with you honestly and openly.

It is not often that we are able to give ourselves a specific, intentional space each week in order to reflect and ‘just be’. It is a privileged space and we will work together to honour this by speaking openly about how the therapy is going. Please see my website below for more information on me and how I practice.

You can also find me on Counselling Directory or Psychology Today,sexualabuseanddisorderedeating.
