About me

I work from my consulting room by Peckham Rye Common and I also work over the phone and internet including online video. I work during the day and in the evenings.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained as an attachment based psychoanalytic psychotherapist. I completetd this training in 2011 and registered with the UKCP in 2015. Before this I trained and worked as a mental health nurse and cognitive behavioural therapist. I also worked at the Institute of Psychiatry , King's College London as a lecturer practitioner in mental health. I have 25 years experience as a mental health worker. I have worked in many different areas of mental health including drug and alcohol use, serious mental illness and assessment, depression and anxiety difficulties.

I am also a musician and some of my work as a psychotherapist is with people with performing and creative backgrounds.
