MA., BPC Registered, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist

About me

I’m a registered psychoanalytic psychotherapist, able to offer counselling and therapy to adults and older adolescents.

I work with people from all walks of life who are struggling with psychological or emotional difficulties, however they manifest: for example, feeling stressed at work, experiencing more generalised anxiety, not being able to concentrate, having relationships that break down, experiencing sexual problems.

Many of us encounter problems at certain times in our lives, and it can be very helpful to talk to a therapist in a safe and confidential environment about your thoughts, your feelings and any specific conflicts or issues you are facing.

I mainly offer open-ended treatment but do have some availability for more time-limited work.

My consulting room is close to Winchmore Hill BR station (15 min from Finsbury Park station) and within walking distance of Southgate tube station.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a British Psychoanalytic Council registered Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, and a Member of the British Psychotherapy Foundation. I have experience of working in private practice and the NHS.

I am a member of the Enfield Psychotherapy Association.
