About me

I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, an Adult Psychoanalyst and an Adolescent and Adult Psychotherapist. I have been working in combined NHS and private practice since 1993. I have extensive clinical experience with adults and young people with a range of emotional and psychological difficulties and severities.

I offer a confidential and private setting for self understanding and change using a psychodynamic approach. When considering psychotherapy it is often helpful to have one or more preliminary consultations before deciding whether it is an appropriate treatment. Occasionally, the therapy might be of short duration but generally speaking psychoanalytic psychotherapy is best considered as a longer-term treatment. I work with a flexible approach to frequency of sessions depending on need.

I also have extensive experience in providing clinical supervision and training to a range of healthcare professionals including doctors, psychologists and psychotherapists in both individual and group settings.

​Please contact me by email or phone to arrange an initial psychotherapy appointment.
