With over 30 years of therapeutic experience with very complex situations, I am a fully registered member of the BACP and CPCAB. I am further trained psychoanalytically to treat psychosomatic conditions (USA), in couples and family therapy (IOPPN) and psychodynamic psychotherapy (UK). I have over 25 years experience of working with children, parents and adults with wide-ranging issues, from a diversity of cultures and backgrounds.
My main experience is working with children, young people and adults who experience: low self-esteem, childhood issues and discriminations, relationship issues, depression and anxiety, self-harm and suicidality, neuro-developmental conditions, learning difficulties, addictions, eating disorders, psychoses, forensic issues and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Additionally, I currently work with adults with psychogenic seizures, those diagnosed on the schizophrenia spectrum, HIV+/AIDS, post-stroke, amongst a range of other issues, such as those relating to personality difficulties.
Training, qualifications & experience
It is quite something to be looking for a therapist - I will help you in your search.

I studied depth psychology for many years, using what I have learned to help children and adults in a hospice, schools and the NHS. I have trained in safeguarding at PG level, Interpersonal and dynamic psychotherapy, family and couples therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, therapeutic counselling and mentalisation-based therapy.
