About me

I am an experienced Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist in private practice in Swiss Cottage, North West London. I offer in-depth, open-ended psychological work to adults. This involves the exploration of both conscious and unconscious thoughts, feelings, emotions, motivations and patterns of behaviour which have become ingrained within the personality and which continue to have an impact on all aspects of the person's life and relationships.

Whether you are suffering from Depression, Anxiety, Problems at work, with Relationships, or any other type of difficulty, my work as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist involves working with whatever may come up in our conversations, with the aim of increasing awareness of oneself and making sense of one's experiences.

The work of psychotherapy is about opening up a life burdened by repetition and restriction into a dimension of exploration, finding out and thereby enabling new possibilities.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have undergone a rigorous training both in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Psychodynamic Counselling at the Westminster Pastoral Foundation (WPF). I also hold an Honours Degree in Psychology (BSc) from Goldsmiths’University, London.
I have worked in the field for over twenty years.

I am accredited by The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC), and am a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
I work in both English and Spanish.

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.
