About me

I am offering brief counselling or longer term in-depth psychotherapy in Central London and Queens Park.

I am a psychodynamic counsellor and psychoanalytic psychotherapist having worked both in the NHS and in Private Practice. This extensive experience with people of all ages, coming with a wide range of problems, enables me to offer you a safe space to share your difficulties.

There are many reasons as to why people decide to seek help but finding an appropriate counsellor or psychotherapist can be daunting. When we are feeling depressed or low we can become confused about the uncomfortable or even frightening feelings we may be experiencing and so trying to understand, or voice them, feels to be impossible.Being able to speak of these things with another person can generally relieve us and empower us to implement changes.

I am also a qualified supervisor and teacher, having worked with therapists in training for over twenty years.
