About me

When making the commitment to start therapy it is important to feel that you are being heard and able to express your feelings safely.

Understanding our emotions is key in making sense of our motivations and the barriers we face to being happy. Improving confidence and self-esteem means difficult decisions can be faced up to.

I have worked as a psychotherapist / counsellor for nearly thirty years and have gained a wide experience working with both individuals and couples.

Over the years my psychotherapy / counselling practice has given me the opportunity to work with a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, couples counselling, eating disorders, addictions, stress and obsessive behaviours. I have had particular experience working with survivors of sexual abuse and their families.

I work Psychoanalytically and with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). My training involved an eclectic approach to Freudian Jungian and Kleinian therapy. In recent years I have studied and worked with Attachment theory in adult life.

The number and frequency of the sessions will be discussed and agreed at the first session. Fees are agreed with each client, a usual fee is £60 per fifty-minute session.

All information is held in strict confidence.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my postgraduate training in psychoanalysis at The Association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy (AGIP) in London, after I had trained in education at Borough Road College University of London.

I am registered with the Untied Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and a member of the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis (CPJA).

In recent years I have studied Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) at the Institute for Education in London and Attachment theory in adult life, training with Dr. Una McCluskey at the University of York and with Dr. Dorothy Heard.
