Life can feel like a struggle in which we feel stuck, helpless and unhappy. Talking can often help to make sense of some of our patterns of behaviour and our relationships, past and present.
I am an experienced psychotherapist with over 10 years practice in the NHS and privately. I work with a range of symptoms and issues and provide a safe and confidential space to listen, think and explore with you at a deeper level what may be going on and why.
I recommend an initial consultation to think together about what could help you the most. I work once or twice weekly and open-ended from a comfortable consulting room in Victoria or via zoom, Skype or telephone. Do get in touch by phone or email if you would like to arrange a free consultation. All enquiries will be confidential.

I am currently a candidate at the British Psychoanalytic Association and the International Psychoanalytic Association.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Psychoanalytic Council
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
