About me

I am an experienced couple and individual psychotherapist. My private practice is located in Mayfair, W1, and I also offer online therapy.

I work psychodynamically, listening carefully to your concerns, and thinking with you about how any difficulties you are experiencing now might be influenced by your past experiences. I find that getting a better understanding of what lies behind problems can help in developing a more free and satisfying life, and better relationships.

Please get in touch, and we can arrange an initial meeting to discuss your situation, and your hopes for therapy. If we decide that working together would be helpful, we will agree a regular time to meet for a 50 minute session each week.

I am a registered member of both the British Psychoanalytic Council, and British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and I adhere to their codes of ethics.

Training, qualifications & experience

I originally trained as a couple and individual psychotherapist at Tavistock Relationships, and I then undertook further indepth specialist training as a couple psychoanalytic psychotherapist.

In addition to my private practice, I am a Visiting Lecturer and Clinician at Tavistock Relationships.

I have also completed a year long specialist training at Tavistock Relationships in working with couples who are separated or divorced, or thinking about separating.

I am trained in facilatating Parents as Partners, a group programme for parents who are in conflict and struggling with parenting difficulties.
