About me

I work at a gentle pace and at a readiness which is finely attuned to your needs. Drawing upon  30 years’ experience in the professions of wellbeing and social care. I work sensitively  and respectfully alongside my clients  to address issues such as anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, guilt, loneliness,  panic attacks, phobias,  relationship difficulties, sexuality, and trauma.

As part of my own training and personal development, I have encountered several years of  Jungian analyses and then more intensive psychoanalysis, 3 times weekly for the last 5 years.  I have regular clinical supervision to hold in check that our work is focused, solid, and evolving.

If you are feeling overwhelmed at the thought of beginning therapy or just unsure please do contact me. This first step is one of the bravest you will take on your way towards genuine change and authenticity.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a BSc (Hons) Psychology degree from Birkbeck, University of London, a PG Diploma in the psychodynamics of human development from the British Association of Psychotherapists, a teaching qualification PGCE, from the University of East London, A PG Certificate from the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust in counselling in educational settings. I undertook the PG Certificate at the Institute for Group Analyses and the qualifying clinical PGDiploma in psychodynamic practice at the University of Oxford.

I am currently finalising my MSt (Master of Studies) dissertation at Kellogg College, Oxford.

I have worked in mental health care in a range of capacities, including being a mentor in several universities across London.  I am a university and college lecturer and a trainer in the fields of psychology, health, counselling, and social care. I am also a personal development group facilitator on a  for counselling trainees.

Our initial session, which will be an assessment, is set at £60 and lasts for one hour.

Subsequent sessions are from £45.00 - £80.00 per 50-minute session.  This will depend on your income and what you can reasonably pay. We will agree to the fee during the assessment. If the fee is difficult I am open to discussing this.

20% of my practice is for low-cost therapy so that the unwaged or those on low income are not excluded. However,  I do not currently have any places available until 2019.
