About me

Working in the heart of the city of London (EC4 and SW1W), I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist with a wealth of experience working with people who at times feel stuck and need help and understanding to navigate issues such as anxiety, depression, burnout, addiction, bereavement and relationship problems.

I offer a confidential space, where together we can begin to think about and make sense of difficult feelings and thoughts which are stopping you from moving forward. I work in-person, on the phone or online and offer either once weekly, open ended psychotherapy or time-limited brief therapy consisting of twelve sessions (50 minutes in duration).

Everyone needs to connect with their psychotherapist. You may be understandably nervous talking to a complete stranger about your innermost thoughts. This is the reason why I offer a free discovery call in the first instance to explore what you are looking for and if I can help.

Training, qualifications & experience

I started my journey over 18 years ago as a volunteer in a hospice, listening to patients who were terminally ill or receiving end of life care. I then worked at the Maytree, a place which offers suicide respite to anyone who needs it. Individuals in crisis are given a voice, listened to and given the freedom to air their darkest thoughts without judgement. For so many, and especially for men, expressing deep rooted feelings can be hard, almost taboo.

These experiences led me to train in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
