Do you feel like you're stumbling through your day-to-day? Find it near impossible to tell people no, even when you know you should? Does it feel like you're stuck, no matter what you try to do?

Do you feel overwhelmed by your emotions? Do you struggle to cope with anxiety or depression? Have you had an experience that is holding you back from being the person you want to be?

It can feel incredibly lonely trying to deal with everything, and you might feel like you're the only person who feels this way. Let me tell you that despite how it seems, you're definitely not alone in facing these challenges. Loads of people out there are dealing with similar things, and therapy can be your secret weapon for tackling it all.

I know reaching out for help can feel like a big leap, but trust me, it's a really important act of self-love. It's like opening a door to a whole world of growth, self-awareness, and positivity.

Hey there! I'm Roxanne, an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist based in Shoreditch and Hackney. Specialising in articulating needs, building self-appreciation and boundary setting, I'm here to help you navigate life's twists and turns.

I offer a safe, confidential space for adults to explore and grow. Together, we'll uncover your true self and work towards your best life, whether you're after short term support or a longer journey.

So, what can I help you with? Well, I'm all about helping people like you set boundaries, find their voice, and build self worth. Plus, I've got your back if you're wrestling with low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, or stress.


I've struggled with anxiety and setting boundaries in my own life, so I'm well aware of how difficult it can be to take the steps to overcome them. I also know first hand how important it is to find the right therapist which is why I offer a free 20 minute consultation where we can discuss why you are seeking therapy and see if we are a good match.

What is Counselling?

Ever think of counselling as a quick-fix or a cure-all? Let's break that myth. Counselling isn't a magical solution that will instantly solve everything. It's more like a journey that we take together, exploring your thoughts and feelings. Instead of erasing problems, it's about finding ways to navigate them and grow stronger.

Counselling is like a cozy chat where we figure things out. It's not about fixing you - it's about helping you understand yourself better. No quick fixes here, just a gradual process of self-discovery and picking up tools to handle life's twists and turns. So, no magic tricks, but plenty of support as you navigate your unique path to growth.


What is Psychotherapy?

Think of psychotherapy as a deep dive into your life story. We dig into your past to see how it shapes who you are now. It's like opening up a book about yourself. In therapy, we bring hidden feelings into the open, helping you understand why you feel the way you do. This isn't just about talking through problems; it's about getting a fresh view on what's happening in your life right now.

Psychotherapy is like turning the pages of your life story. We don't just skim the surface - we go deeper. It's about understanding where your feelings and actions come from. By shining a light on your past, we find new ways to tackle the challenges of today. It's a bit like discovering hidden chapters in your book of like and using that insight to navigate the present.

Working with me

When we work together, I blend different methods, but I'm primarily person-centred. We are in this together, walking side by side as we figure things out. Building trust is key- it's what makes out journey successful.

In our chats, you're in the driver's seat. You set the pace and bring up whatever's on your mind. This way, we can tailor our journey to fit exactly what you need and want. We'll figure things out together, shaping a path that's just right for you.

Psychodynamic approach

The psychodynamic approach recognises that your past experiences, including those in childhood, can be seen to shape and influence your present patterns of thoughts and behaviours. We all have unconscious feelings that influence our current thinking and can help shed light on the problems we are facing. By bringing unconscious feelings to the fore and exploring them more deeply, you can gain a new perspective on your struggles which will help you understand them better and find ways to cope with them.

Other approaches I draw upon

As an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, I may also draw on approaches such as transactional analysis, exploring your communication and relationships, CBT, a practical solution based therapy to help you break the pattern of unwanted thoughts or behaviours and mindfulness, which helps you stay present and focused on the here and now, enabling you to cope with your issues better.

Initial consultation

Before we begin working together, I offer a free 20-minute online consultation. This gives me the opportunity to find out more about you, your background and the issues you are struggling with so I determine if I can help. It also gives you the opportunity to find out about counselling and what it entails, so together, we can decide if we are a good fit to work together.

Online Therapy or Face to Face?

Choosing online therapy can be a game changer. No more travel hassles - you can access therapy from the comfort of your own space, wherever that may be. It's a time and cost-effective option, eliminating the need to factor in commuting time and expenses. Whether you're at home, work, or anywhere else, online therapy offers flexibility and convenience. Importantly, research shows it's just as effective as in-person therapy, ensuring you get the support you need in a way that fits seamlessly into your life.

That being said, some people prefer seeing their therapist in person. Being in the same physical space as your therapist can help to create a sense of trust and comfort that makes it easier for some people to open up. Plus, for some, the act of physically going to therapy can serve as dedicated time and space for self-care, away from the distractions of home. And of course, if you find it difficult to have privacy in your home, in person therapy is a no-brainer.

Whichever mode of therapy you choose, you will receive the same level of attention and care, and both modes of therapy are equally effective.
