Jealousy, depression, panic attacks, anger, fear, anxiety, problems with sleep, difficulties with sex, troubles with love and work. Any of these things can leave you overwhelmed, and seem impossible to overcome on your own.
By talking things through with someone who listens carefully, it can be possible to shift the burden so that you can get on again with your life.
It takes courage to make the first step to find an analyst – but it is the first step to regaining a sense of control over your life, your love, and your work.
Come for an exploratory chat; find out how I operate. You can talk about what has led you to this point, and what you hope to get out of your sessions. Then you can decide whether you think we can work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
The three aspects to my psychoanalytical training are: my own personal analysis; wide-ranging study (participation in regular lectures, conferences and study groups etc, reading, writing, editing, and translating both new ideas and landmark texts); and a wide and long experience of working with people of different ages and backgrounds and in different situations (school, hospitals, charities, GP surgery, private practice), including a lot of one to one work under regular supervision.
Together with my colleagues, I help to run seminars and events that support and disseminate our way of working – in the Lacanian orientation of psychoanalysis. I work as editor and translator of texts for publication in the field too. This all helps to ensure that my work stays up to date and connected to a lively network of other dedicated and experienced practitioners from all around the world.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

It is hard to know what to do with this list of tick boxes. These kinds of lists try to give a name to something that is problematic, but it is often the name that you give it that will be decisive in finding out what is going wrong.
If you want to know something about why and how you are suffering, then come and describe your situation, and your ways of trying to deal with it.
Most of us find ways to hold things together most of the time, but sometimes this stops working – this is a good time to find an analyst and to talk about what has gone wrong. It will be the beginning of a conversation like no other, and can become a time to invent, discover, and perhaps also to change.
