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 specialise in working with eating disorders, body dysmorphia and anxiety as well as men's issues.

I work at a specialised clinic on these issues with an exclusive clientele. 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 is too often attacked via anti-depressants. What is really needed is for someone to help you make sense of your life. It is not an 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 (similar to Skype)

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.
