I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist based in central London. I work for the most part psychodynamically. This means that I understand the difficulties that trouble us in the present as very often arising out of our pasts. This in turn means that we may be able to do more about what makes us anxious, confused or distressed than we think.
For while you can't change the past, the experience of talking in confidence about how you are feeling and of being listened to without judgment and without anyone jumping to conclusions, can definitely change the way your past affects you. And you will find that brings change to whatever you might be struggling with at the moment: whether that's a personal matter, a relationship issue or a problem at work.
My practice is located in a quiet building near Oxford Circus. I offer both short-term and open-ended therapy. To begin with, I usually suggest an initial session to give me a sense of why you are seeking therapy and what you would like from it. Do contact me either by telephone or email to arrange one, or if you have any questions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at WPF Therapy in London and am qualified to practice as a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC), and am subject to their codes of ethics, complaints procedures and requirements for continuing professional development.
Besides my private practice I have also worked as a psychotherapist in the NHS and am currently a counsellor within the UK prison service.
