About me

Get to know yourself and those around you. Understanding and acceptance are by far the best medicine for stress and unhappiness. Psychotherapy or psychodynamic counselling is the laboratory of relationship. It's a journey into the unknown, shared and provoked by the therapy relationship It is the field where definitions of personality, of illness and health, of right and wrong, break down, so however you name your queries about yourself, this relationship can address them.

I offer once, twice or three times weekly psychotherapy face to face with adults over 21.

One-to-one psychotherapy is a regular, long-term relationship, a place of familiar and unfamiliar experiences where we have the opportunity to pause and look at what we are doing and how we are relating to the other person.
As a practising artist as well as therapist, I am especially interested in what facilitates and what inhibits our capacity to do stuff in the world and take ourselves seriously, whether we are considering the domains of the arts, of love and sex, of family or of work.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist with AGIP, the association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy in 2001 and have had a full-time private practice in North London and the City since then.

Prior to the training at AGIP I did the Art Therapy training at Goldsmith's College in the early Eighties, and currently work with individuals and small groups in this field too.

I have taught on a number of counselling trainings and supervise trainee counsellors and psychotherapists.
