About me

For the last twelve years I have been helping my clients to work through a wide spectrum of psychological difficulties, from anxiety and depression, to difficulties that can affect interpersonal relationships. I am also experienced in helping patients with more debilitating psychological difficulties that have had a severe impact on the quality of their lives.

Exploring past experience, and current thoughts and feeling, the psychoanalytic therapeutic approach aims to bring unconscious patterns of relating and perceiving into consciousness. Through a dedication to the process I am able to help my patients to gain insight, to feel more integrated, and to find ways to move forward. The intensity of the treatment varies from between once a week and four times a week, depending on what the client is able to manage and what seems appropriate.

I work in a quiet, safe and confidential environment. The front entrance has a keypad for easy access. There is a large confortable waiting area with a water cooler. The consulting room is located ten minutes walk from Westbourne Park tube station and 15 minutes walk from Maida Vale.

For an initial consultation I charge £60. For ongoing treatment I have a sliding scale; charging between £60-£110, depending on what is affordable and the number of sessions per week.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist. I am an accredited member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC), a member of the British Psychotherapy Foundation and an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP Accred). I also have a MSc in Psychotherapy and until recently had a teaching post on the MSc psychotherapy training course at Birkbeck University. I have nine years of NHS clinical experience working with a variety of psychological difficulties, and currently work privately and in the public sector. I have many years of experience managing risk and liaising with other services when additional support is required.
