About me

I am an accredited and experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist trained at the Tavistock and Portman.

I offer weekly, open ended therapy sessions and also intensive therapy up to three times per week. 

Psychotherapy, or talking therapy helps us identify aspects of our past and how they impacted on us throughout our lives and in the present day. Through explorations with a trained professional this can lead to shifts in how we think about and understand what has happened to us and also how to respond to others and to events in our lives moving forward. You will be encouraged to talk about whatever is on your mind and to bring up feelings and thoughts for us to look at together.

Training, qualifications & experience

Alongside my private work I have worked a number of years in inpatient and community NHS settings, in adult, forensics and child and adolescent mental health services. I have been practicing as a psychotherapist since 2016.

When you first get in touch we will discuss booking a consultation at a mutually convenient time. One of the aims of the consultation is for you to have an opportunity to have an experience of the way that I work. Here we can also think about your specific needs, what brings you to therapy and if this approach will be beneficial for you.
