About me

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist, which simply means that I work on a deep level to help people to understand their personal journey through life, and how their relationships in the past and the present have helped shape who they are.

I work with emotional challenges, especially anxiety. I work at the Health matters practice in Central London.  However I am available to conduct therapy remotely, and I will charge less than you would pay to see me at the practice in Central London.

I know from experience that therapy is proven to be a better alternative to medication for anxiety and depression for my clients. These issues are often manifestations of an overwhelming life pain that are too often attacked via anti-depressants. What is really needed is for someone to help you make sense of your life. It is not easy nor is it a painless process – but all that it takes is a commitment to begin the work. I will match your commitment by being with you for the journey to self-healing

At present, I am only available to offer sessions remotely via Zoom.

Member organisations

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

I have worked in the wider mental health field with people who have severe mental health conditions, as well as those who have had difficult or traumatic life circumstances. I also work with a major charity supporting people in London with anxiety and depression on a daily basis.

I am immersed in the science around wellbeing and human optimisation; which is about the lifestyle and behaviours that best help people to flourish as individuals. I sincerely believe that anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medication is far from the ideal way to deal with these problems. It is far better to understand your pain and to find your mind's natural path to healing, rather than medicate.

I am fascinated by nutrition, supplementation and the links between food, medicine, training and longevity. In my personal time, I love to learn about these subjects. I practice intermittent fasting, mindfulness meditation and have been a martial artist for most of my adult life. All of which have been my vehicles for personal growth.
