About me

I hold an unconditional regard for my clients and strive to create an intimate and caring therapeutic relationship where, together, we can confront issues honestly and directly.

For me, psychotherapy is an open-minded and compassionate investigation into the truth.

Sessions are devoted to uncovering thoughts and emotions that underpin conditions of anxiety, depression, stress and addiction, which can make life unmanageable. Bereavement, trauma and relationship issues are also topics that can be worked through together.

A co-operative and inspired therapeutic partnership provides not only symptom relief, but an enhanced sense of self and purpose.

Typically I see clients once or twice a week. The length of the therapy can be decided between us.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a psychodynamic psychotherapist at the Tavistock Centre, and have worked with individuals and groups for the NHS and addiction centres for over 10 years. My current post is with the Trauma Unit at the Tavistock Adult Directorate.

I have experience treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction, chronic fatigue, self-harm and suicidal thoughts. My clients come from a wide range of backgrounds, and have histories of neglect; physical, emotional, and sexual abuse and assault; and other traumas.

I have also studied and practised Mentalisation Based Therapy, a therapy that helps to make sense of our thoughts, beliefs, wishes, and feelings and to link these to our actions.

I am a member of the British Psychoanalytic Council and abide by their codes of ethical standards and confidentiality.  I am also a member of the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists.
