About me

I have worked in private practice in central London for twenty years, since first qualifying as a psychotherapist and counsellor. I completed a second UKCP training in 2012, to deepen my capacity to work with more complex concerns.

I am a registered clinical supervisor, and now work half-time in private practice alongside a senior NHS teaching post.

I am pleased to be contacted by people seeking focused support during a period of change, or longer-term therapy when desired changes seem very hard to achieve. Many people in my practice want to make sense of difficult family relationships: with their parents; their children; their siblings; their partners. It is often helpful to think inter-generationally about these situations, which are aslo very easily stirred up and experienced in the workplace.

Psychoanalytic work has a long history of addressing relational difficulties in careful detail, and is my usual approach to clinical practice.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold UKCP registration as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and psychodynamic supervisor. I first registered with the UKCP as an existential psychotherapist and counsellor.

I currently teach on a doctoral-level clinical training at the Tavistock Centre, London, and have previously been a Principal Lecturer in Counselling and Subject Lead for a BACP-accredited MA programme.

Qualifications: Graduate Diploma, PGCert, MA, PhD, IGA Diploma in Supervison. I am a Clinical Member of the Forum for Independent Psychotherapists, an Associate Member of the Institute of Group Analysis, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
