I am a Psychodynamic/Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with more than 20 years experience as a clinician. I have a private practice in Hampstead/Belsize Park NW3 London and until recently, was also a staff member of the training Management team at WPF Therapy London Bridge, where I was a seminar leader, clinical supervisor and tutor. I also work currently as a psychotherapist at the Camden Psychotherapy Unit, a charity uniquely offering free or lowcost psychoanalytic psychotherapy for up to 2 years.
I am BPC and BACP registered and a longstanding member of the Editorial Board of the British Journal of Psychotherapy. I run workshops and 8 week trainings in Mindfulness and Self Compassion for Clinicians from a wide variety of orientations.
I am an experienced therapist accustomed to working with many, sometimes complex presenting problems including depression, grief, anxiety, sexuality, gender and trauma. As a university counsellor for many years I am used to working with students and academics on a wide variety of issues around family, relationships and work. My own personal interest in Mindfulness informs all my work and becomes part of the therapeutic process when appropriate. I work once and twice weekly and while most of my patients are in open-ended therapy, I also do some time-limited and short term treatment.
I have particular experience and interest in working with those in the creative and artistic professions including actors, musicians, dancers, designers and those in the media. I also work with many professionals from the city and health professionals and teachers.
