Whatever the nature or extent of your difficulties, I offer a safe space where you can talk in confidence and without being judged.
Faced with so many different forms of psychotherapy and counselling, it can be difficult knowing how or where to start. Added to that, the prospect of talking to someone about personal or painful feelings will probably feel daunting. The initial consultation can be useful in giving you a sense of whether ongoing sessions will be helpful/appropriate.
I am a qualified psychotherapist providing both open-ended and time-limited psychotherapy/counselling. I work from a psychodynamic perspective. This means that I attach importance not only to current experiences and ways of relating, but also to how these may be linked to earlier experiences - understanding the underlying nature of the behaviour and emotions which are causing difficulty or distress can help to relieve suffering and open up the possibility for change.
I work from a comfortable consulting room situated very close to Victoria underground and mainline stations. Do get in touch by email or telephone if you'd like to arrange an initial meeting, or if you have any questions. All enquiries are dealt with in the strictest confidence.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained as a psychodynamic psychotherapist at WPF Therapy, one of the country's leading and most highly respected training institutions. As a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy), the FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling) and the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council), I am bound by strict ethical and professional codes of conduct. I have several years of clinical experience.
