About me

I offer a warm, supportive, confidential setting in which to explore any issues arising in your life. I meet individuals and couples of working age and beyond, of any cultural background, gender, or sexual orientation. Sessions last fifty minutes and are generally on a weekly basis. Appointments are available in the day, evening, and at weekends. Under current circumstances, social distancing rules are observed. If you prefer I also work online, which has been proving effective for new and established clients.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a full clinical member of the UKCP and UPCA. My original psychodynamic training was at Goldsmiths, University of London (Postgraduate Diploma). I am also trained in mentalising (Anna Freud Centre) and clinical supervision (IGA London). I have a decade’s experience of working in an NHS setting, and extensive experience in the private sector. My work with couples is informed by Relational Training, and experience, with Relate. I undertake ongoing professional supervision and continuing professional development.
