“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” (Jung)          


Available on Saturdays in Kings Cross for in-person sessions. Also available for online sessions at other times.

Art Psychotherapy focuses on the relational creative process and connects each one to their creative source within, which is ultimately our life force and within each of us if we allow ourselves to connect to it. Everyone has this creative potential – our wild nature and heart wisdom within – which is yearning to be unlocked. It is to find this creativity, integrity, dignity, grace and play in simple being within every day’s mundane routines and within your relationship to yourself and to others.

I am here to witness, support and guide you on this journey to find your own healer within and step into your fullest potential, aligned with your true and authentic self.

Educated in a formal psychodynamic framework in Art psychotherapy, I also deeply believe in, use and apply Jungian, Buddhist and shamanic methods in my approach, depending on context and your individual needs and resonance at that moment. I am a practicing Tibetan Buddhist under the guidance of Chamtrul Rinpoche, a recognised master within the Nyingma tradition, and I continue to study and apply the methods of Buddhist psychology and esoteric ancient rituals in psychotherapy.  I have been initiated as a whirling dervish in the Medlevi tradition and organically Sufi philosophy and its practice informs heart-based therapeutic practice in relation to the healing qualities of nature, body and movement.

I am deeply committed to the healing through creativity, nature, ritual and community. I have more than ten years experience of working in the community and the arts as healing. I have facilitated creative spaces in diverse settings including refugee camps, palliative care, education, and domestic and sexual violence. Working with Trauma, the role of memory and the body as a powerful tool have been on the fore of my interest.  

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity” (Pema Chödrön)

Therapy sessions are 50 minutes and available in English, German and Arabic.
