About me

People seek psychotherapy because they might be worried about something: they might feel upset, distressed, feeling that something has gone wrong in their life, feeling stuck or have lost meaning in life. They look for someone to share their problems with, and talking to a psychotherapist can be helpful; someone who is trained to listen, to think in a sensitive way and to help finding other ways to deal with those problems.

I offer a safe environment, a confidential and secure space that will enable us to build a therapeutic relationship through regular meetings. This brings the opportunity to talk through issues and concerns openly, identifying difficulties that stop you from living your life to its full potential, beginning to explore the roots of the problems and gaining a new perspective in life.

I have been working in the field of mental health for over 14 years, and have worked with a wide range of client groups from a diverse set of backgrounds. My practice is confidential, non judgemental and respectful of ethnic origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, politics, culture or nationality. All my client work is supervised by an accredited supervisor. I am committed to Continuing Professional Development and I adhere to the Ethical Code of AGIP and UKCP.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an experienced Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with 4 years of post-qualification experience in providing professional psychotherapy services. I am a UKCP-accredited psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice, conducting long-term and time-limited individual psychotherapy sessions for people experiencing emotional or psychological difficulties.

I have been working in the field of mental health for over 14 years, and have worked with a wide range of client groups from a diverse set of backgrounds. Before setting up my private practice, I worked as a therapist and manager for a non-profitable organisation that runs therapeutic communities and psychotherapy for people experiencing complex trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorder, depression, substance dependency, psychosis and personality disorder.

I have worked as a consultant facilitating weekly staff support groups to help staff understand the unconscious processes involved in clinical work when working with challenging clients, and understand organisational and/or team dynamics.

I also have taught courses for a postgraduate training in group psychotherapy accredited by Middlesex University. I have conducted staff groups, group supervision and training days for multi-professional teams, and has run workshops on therapeutic communities organised by the Royal College of Psychiatrists' Centre for Quality Improvement.

I have experience in working with stress, anxiety, depression, psychosomatic symptoms, panic attacks, feelings of low self-esteem, physical and emotional abuse, bereavement, trauma, addictive patterns, relationship problems, eating disorders, and those who are struggling with a lack of purpose and meaning in their lives.
