I am an experienced attachment-based psychotherapist and the Director of the Music Industy Therapist Collective (MITC). I work in private practice in Angel, Islington and also online via Zoom. I previously spent several years at an NHS hospital working with clients with diagnoses related to complex trauma and experiences of abuse, trauma and neglect. I specialise in working with attachment-related issues such as difficulties in relationships, identity, depression, anxiety, grief and addiction.


In my private practice, I work with a broad client-base from all walks of life and all industries. My clients are typically facing issues related to:


  • depression, anxiety and stress
  • grief, loss and bereavement
  • trauma, neglect, physical, sexual and mental abuse
  • identity, meaning and purpose
  • attachment, relationship and interpersonal issues
  • addiction (inc. food, sex, drugs, gambling, alcohol)
  • phobias
  • gender
  • sexuality
  • anger and emotional difficulties (including personality disorders such as anti-social personality disorder, schizo-affective disorder, complex PTSD, borderline personality disorder and dissociative disorders)

I spent 10 years working in the music industry as an event booker, promoter and artist manager; experience which has provided valuable insight for working therapeutically with artists, music industry and creatives working in other fields. I’m currently researching the psychological impact of touring for musicians and am writing a book called the Touring & Mental Health manual (which has been sponsored by Live Nation).


I have contributed to articles for the likes of Metro, Refinery 29, The Stylist and VICE and have been featured on panels at music industry conferences such as Amsterdam Dance Event, IMS College – Malta, BBC Introducing, Brighton Music Conference and Paris Electronica Week.
