About me

I provide psychodynamic psychotherapy/counselling, consisting of one-to-one confidential meetings. It is an opportunity to discuss difficulties which arise in love relations, in the workplace or in life generally.

My practice is based both in New Malden and in the Waterloo area. 

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Counselling provide the opportunity to discuss any concerns or difficulties which may be getting in the way of leading a full life. It can also be used to discuss feelings which may have been buried but have now surfaced for various reasons.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy/Counselling is effective in addressing the following:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Loss or bereavement
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Sexual issues
  • Work related problems
  • Eating disorders
  • Trauma
  • Gender issues.
