About me

The co-founder of the Box Tree Clinic in the Harley Street area of Marylebone, I am trained in the application of several therapeutic modalities and specialise in psychodynamic psychotherapy (influenced by the psychoanalytic work of Stolorow) as well as person-centred therapy for many issues including anxiety, bereavement, depression, personality disorders, and relationships. I am a specialist in Prolonged Exposure (PE) & Narrative Exposure (NET) therapies for PTSD and C-PTSD from abuse, complex grief, war, and disaster. Visit comfortshieldstherapy.com for more information.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a graduate of Oxford University, Fielding Graduate University (APA Accredited, California) where I had over 5 years of full-time post-graduate psychology training, and trained clinically at Yale University Medical Centre. Clinical psychology training in the United States is comprehensive and prepares psychologists to be psychotherapists, diagnosticians, as well as academics.

I have published peer reviewed articles in leading psychology journals, and presented research at the American Psychological Association's national convention. I have completed extensive original research on complex bereavement, attachment, and temporality and was awarded the Creative Longevity and Wisdom Fellowship from the Institute for Social Innovation. Psychoanalyst, philosopher, and author of Trauma and Human Existence, Robert Stolorow described reading my research as "an exhilarating experience". I have spoken on dozens of radio programmes about suicide loss survival.
