About me

I am an experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and Counsellor who fervently believes in the therapeutic value of the psychoanalytic process and relationship.

Central to my therapeutic perspective is the belief that my clients need to experience their growing sense of self in a facilitating environment which promotes their psychological well-being.

For this reason, I want my clients to feel safe, valued and accepted. I also approach their problems in an empathic, concerned and genuine way that is non-judgmental.

I use the rich symbolic language of different psychoanalytic models to explore the ways in which my clients' representations of past and present relationships are formed and the effects they have on their psychological development.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my counselling training at Goldsmiths College in 1998. I hold a BSc (Honours) in Psychology from Royal Holloway and an MA and PhD in Psychoanalysis from the University of Kent. I am currently a Senior Lecturer for the DPsych Counselling Psychology at Regents University and an Associate Lecturer for the MA in Counselling at Goldsmiths College.

I am also a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the SITE for Contemporary Psychoanalysis (I served as an Acting Chair and member of the SITE Council).

Finally, I am part of a 4-year training programme in relational psychoanalysis with the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP) in New York.
