About me

I practice both psychodynamic counselling and cognitive behaviour therapy from comfortable rooms in Surbiton. My approach is feeling-led, empathic and engaged.

Areas I help with include social anxiety, excessive worrying, bereavement, relationship problems, abuse including sexual abuse, stress and mid-life crisis.  Or maybe your concerns feel less defined such as a sense of emptiness, a feeling of not knowing who you are or having lost your way, or low mood. Let's try together to understand you better, and help you to find your way forward.

I am a believer in the process that unfolds in the dedicated time and space of the psychotherapy room, as understanding and meaning to your experience emerges over time, and through which healing and empowerment are made possible.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a degree in Psychodynamic Counselling and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (BSc 1st Class honours) from Birkbeck, University of London.

As well as my private psychotherapy practice, I am a specialist student mentor for students with mental and physical health conditions at Kingston University.

I am committed to onward professional development, currently at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust (Inter-Cultural Psychodynamic Psychotherapy course D59).

Further information

If you may be interested in seeing me, here's how the process would go:

You email me or leave a message and I'll either email you or call you back for a brief confidential chat at a mutually convenient time.

If we agree, then we will arrange to meet for a consultation which would be an opportunity to find out more about you and assess your needs.  You're not committed to anything except that session's fees. 

If we would both like to continue we will set up an arrangement for regular sessions, or I may assist with a referral. I can see patients up to twice a week. My work is clinically supervised as is required by my membership body.
