About me

In the pace of modern life it is sometimes easy to lose ourselves. Old repetitive behaviours can creep in and we find it hard to move forward in life.

I offer time, space and attention, an individual, objective yet caring environment that can help you discover your potential.

Whether you are despairing, alone, lost or just confused by what life currently seems to offer whether you require counselling, deeper work in psychotherapy or full Jungian analysis, I can offer regular time to help.

I am also able to offer supervision in these modalities.

Training, qualifications & experience

Originally trained at wpf Kensington, I gained my Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapy in 2002.  Since that time I have also undertaken a further training as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist at wpf and this has allowed me the expertise to work more frequently and in depth should this be required. 

I have always considered that keeping knowledge and experience alive is benefited by CPD training and to this end I have also trained and qualified as a Jungian Analyst, believing in the hidden potential of each patient that can be sought. This has led onto qualification and acceptance within the International Association of Analytical Psychologists.

In the past I have had extensive experience in the field of addictions, and am currently employed in the NHS as a senior psychotherapist for adult survivors of sexual abuse where I also supervise psychotherapists from different (and similar) trainings.

I am a supervisor at wpf, both on the psychodynamic psychotherapy training and also for candidates on the psychoanalyt psychotherapy training.

My private practice has been established since 2002 where I see patients from all different walks of life with problems that are individual to each.   I am also an established supervisor and am able to offer private supervision from my practice time address.
