Hello, I am an experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist and I'm in private practice in two lovely spaces in Central London, one is in Old Street, the other is in the Bank/Mansion House area.
Ultimately, the relationship between therapist and client is the most important thing about psychotherapy, so really trust your instincts on who feels like the best person for you to contact.
After that, talking together with someone outside of your day to day life who is curious, interested and trained to listen to things in a different way can be tremendously helpful. Sometimes it's just not possible for us to make sense of everything by ourselves, and problems don't ever tend to just go away.
I offer once or twice weekly sessions of inclusive, contemporary and non-judgemental psychotherapy, welcoming people of all genders and sexual diversities, from all walks of life, with whatever it is that's on their mind.
I am lucky to work with a truly diverse group of people, ranging in ages from 19 - 94, and of all colours and creeds, so do give me a call to see whether working with me is something that you'd like to do.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed my PgDip MA in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy at WPF Therapy, and although this is my predominant modality, the work that I do is not limited to it.
I have over 7 years experience of working therapeutically with adults within my own private practice, an esteemed training organisation and several specialist charities. I currently work as a specialist trauma counsellor, group facilitator and assessor for North London Rape Crisis and Solace Women's Aid.
I attend regular CPD training all year round, covering a wide range of relevant topics and up-to-the-minute thinking.
I have a great deal of experience surrounding domestic violence and abuse, childhood sexual abuse, rape and other experiences of sexual violence, trauma and people suffering from PTSD, those affected by suicide and suicidal feelings, and LGBTQ identified people.
Accredited register membership
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Asperger's syndrome
- Body dysmorphic disorder
- Domestic violence
- Eating disorders
- Emotional abuse
- Gender dysphoria
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Passive aggressive behaviour
- Physical abuse
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
The initial consultation is £65 and lasts much longer than a regular 50 minute session. This is an opportunity for us both to explore the best way to help you, and whether working together feels like the best thing for you. There is no obligation.
For weekly ongoing sessions, I typically charge £70, but do ask me about any lower cost appointments during the day.
I do offer a limited number of very low cost spaces which I operate on a pay what you can afford basis. These spaces are held most specifically for those who identify as LGBTQ, those who have been adopted, or any other underrepresented groups.
I am delighted to finally be able to offer appointments in a fully wheelchair accessible space - do contact me with any enquiries about accessibility.
For anyone who lives out of the country, or who would struggle to travel, I do also offer therapy sessions via Skype.
Choosing a therapist can be a bewildering experience, and differences in modalities can be confusing. I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have and will look forward to hearing from you.
