About me

In light of the Coronavirus crisis, I am currently offering online support for people who are experiencing general anxiety, health anxiety, panic attacks, worry, depressive thoughts/feelings, anger issues, stress or any other distressing feeling.

These times are unusual and unsettling as we are also having to spend much more time with our family than we used to. Therefore, we might find ourselves in a difficult position having to navigate the relationship with our partner and children, while trying to manage the uncertainty in our lives.

I would like to offer you online support and when appropriate an online psychotherapy. You can send me an enquiry via email and we will agree a time to speak on the phone to discuss what will be helpful to you.

            _______________________________________________________

I am a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, Psychologist and a Neuroscientist, working at the NHS in Specialist Adult Psychotherapy Services (Secondary Care). I am a member of BPC (British Psychoanalytical Council), INS (International Neuropsychanalysis Society) and BPS (British Psychological Society).I work on a time-limited or open-ended basis.

We would have an initial meeting to explore what brings you to therapy and decide whether psychodynamic therapy is right for you. We would meet on a regular weekly basis for a session of 50 minutes.

We all might experience difficult times in life; feeling complicated feelings and struggling to understand what is going on for you and why is a normal occurrence.

Usually, people seek therapy following some sort of an emotional crisis, a breakdown or a break-up in relationship, loss and bereavement, even following positive experiences like becoming a parent.

I work as a psychodynamic psychotherapist, which means we look together at how your past experiences continue to shape your present experiences and the choices you make.

It could be that you have realised that you seem to repeat patterns in your experiences including your relationship. You might have understood that some painful or complicated experiences of life left you unsettled in many levels.

Using my knowledge and extensive experience as a psychotherapist I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to explore your issues. A greater understanding of your internal world will enable you to gain insight into the way you are operating and to understand yourself better. The therapeutic process will enable you to change your life and your relationships.

As a Psychologist and Neuroscientist, I understand the neurobiological underpinnings of how we act, think, and feel. This informs my practice on many levels and provides me with a better understanding of the way we operate and of the way the process of change happening.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from one of the well-established and known training bodies in London. I also hold a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience (Neuropsychology) and have extensive experience in Research into PsychoNeuroscience (Brain functioning).

I am a member of the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council), BPS (British Psychological Society), INS (International Neuropsychanalysis Society) and BACP.

I have experience working with a wide range of emotional difficulties and issues (see below). For over 6 years I am practising at the NHS, Secondary Care in London, where I see patients from all walks of life with various mental health difficulties.

I start working privately so to allow the appropriate space for people who want to come to therapy, but found it difficult, for whatever reasons, to do in the existing framework provision. Approaching therapy could also be a good way towards personal development and empowered in your life on many levels.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.
