About me

I am an experienced, fully-qualified and registered therapist, offering sessions face-to-face as well as via Zoom.

My clients come to therapy for all kinds of reasons. It might be relationship and family problems, depression and anxiety, addictive or compulsive behaviour, trauma or loss. Sometimes it's because they have a feeling of hopelessness, despair or sadness that they can’t make sense of or perhaps life isn't working out in a way they can't seem to explain or understand, far less change. It may be that that they feel stuck, or a facing a difficult life stage.

I have many years experience with all types of addiction issues and can work with clients following any 12-Step programme. My background, before therapy, is media and arts. 

I have a  treatment room in central Hackney, as well as premises next to London Bridge tube station. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I’m fully trained, and registered with the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) and FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling).  My work is now mostly in my private practice but I am also a part-time therapist at the Royal College of Art and have been a therapist at Mind, the mental health charity, where I dealt with a wide variety of clients. I welcome those of different ages and cultural and social backgrounds.

My main approach is psychodynamic. So in a session we talk about whatever you feel you need to, but this often includes where your problems originated and how this impacts on your life and relationships now.  We work at a pace you feel comfortable with. I don't tell clients what to do with their lives, but instead work with them to find out why they might be feeling the way they do and find different patterns or ways of thinking. Obviously everything we discuss is totally confidential.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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 (BPC)

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.

Additional information

Fees We discuss fees at the initial consultation, and they vary according to time of day, location and salary.  I usually have some low fee slots to offer but currently these are taken.  

When I work

I currently have limited spaces in person and via Zoom. 

Further information

Therapy is usually once-weekly and each session lasts 50 minutes. Everyone is different and it’s hard to know at the beginning how long you might need. I can offer shorter-term therapy, for example 12 weeks. 

I always suggest an initial consultation. Then we can discuss what you might need and any questions you have, including fees. Everything is confidential.

I understand that your therapy has to work in the real world. My background is in the arts and media, I have worked in many different environments.
