About me

Psychotherapy is a unique space unlike any other in your life where you can explore what you need to. By working within the therapeutic relationship we are able to gain an understanding of the way you relate to family, friends and work colleagues in the way that you do. We look for patterns repeating in these relationships. With knowledge of the patterns you can decide if you want to make changes to how you live and relate to the people closest to you. I offer a safe, confidential space.

I am a qualified, accredited, relational, Integrative Psychodynamic Psychotherapist. I work with adults and adolescents from my private practice's based in London and Canterbury. I am registered and abide by the BPS, UKCP and BACP code of ethics. I am a member of the British Psychological Society, UKCP and I am an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

My practice in Canterbury is easy to reach for clients coming from Ashford, Maidstone and Faversham as well as Canterbury and the outlying villages. Just off the A2 parking is easy in a pretty setting.

My practice in London is easy to reach from either Oxford Circus or Bond Street tube station. Wimpole Street runs parallel to Harley Street and is a short walk from the tube.

University Counsellor 2011-2012
Therapist and Unit Registered Manager Promis Addictions Clinic 2005-2015
Psychologist and psychotherapist - NHS Inpatient Psychiatric Unit 2009-2014

Further information

There are some steps you can take to help yourself today:

Think about what you take into your body. Some substances that are eaten or drunk on a daily basis can affect your mood and mimic the trauma response in your mind and body. These can affect your mood without you really being aware.

Keep a food and drink diary for a little while. Notice how much caffeine, sugar, white flour, nicotine and alcohol you have in your diet. All of these are mood altering substances. If you reduce your intake of these substances slowly and carefully it is likely that your mood will be less likely to feel out of control.

There are also many meditation apps to download on your phone. I like Headspace as it is very straight forward and easy to use. The first ten sessions are free. These sorts of app will help you to live more mindfully on a daily basis.

CBT self help books are also great. CBT is not rocket science. You can easily access workbooks online and work through them. Start to catch your negative automatic thoughts like little butterflies. Hold them gently and think about how they impact you.

Read about how your mind and body work together. Reading about the way that you think and feel can be increibly empowering and can help to soothe difficult emotions.

When you feel ready to learn more about your mind and body contact a qualified psychotherapist. I would recommend someone who has trained to UKCP standards as this training is usually rigorous..
