About me

I offer psychoanalytic psychotherapy, psychoanalysis and counselling, usually meeting on a weekly basis or more frequently. I have working experience with a broad range of emotional issues from the ordinary stresses of life events and difficulties in coping, to the less ordinary feelings around issues relating to trauma, abuse or states of dissociation.

I believe it is important to find the space and time to listen to yourself when you are experiencing emotional distress and to be able to speak in a safe and confidential environment.

You may wish to talk to someone because you are in a time of emotional crisis, or in response to feeling depressed, after experiencing a loss, or because of acute anxiety issues such as panic attacks. It may be that you wish to work with an area of long-standing concern, for example repeated relationship patterns.

I have working experience with a wide range of mental health issues, and have had many years study of psychoanalytic theories, therapeutic approaches and ways of thinking about individual distress.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been working in the mental health field since 1999 within voluntary agencies (Counselling and Mental Health) and have experience of clinical management and supervision.

I have been in private practice since 2006.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

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.

Further information

A psychoanalytic approach is particularly helpful for working with deep or complex patterns, and this can mean looking not only at a specific issue or symptom (for example, an eating disorder), but seeing this in the context of your history, current and past life conflicts, and the stories you tell to and about yourself.

I (normally) work in South East London in the Peckham Rye/East Dulwich area.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the current situation with regards Coronavirus and Covid 19, I am only working online and by telephone.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
