About me

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

Clients come for many reasons. It might be relationship and family problems, depression and anxiety, addictive or compulsive behaviour, trauma or loss. Sometimes people come into therapy because they have a feeling of hopelessness, despair or sadness that they can’t make sense of or sometimes it's because life or just 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.

I have a quiet treatment room in Hackney, as well as premises next to London Bridge tube station. My aim is to provide a warm and sympathetic environment.

Training, qualifications & experience

I’m registered with the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) and FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling), my training was in psychodynamic psychotherapy at WPF (Westminster Pastoral Foundation), one of the foremost centres in the UK.  My work is now solely in private practice but I have also 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 might include where your problems might originate and how this impacts on your life and relationships now.  This is always done at a pace you feel comfortable with. I don't tell clients what to do with their lives, but rather work with them to find out why they might be feeling the way they do and find different patterns of behaviour or ways of thinking.

Everything we discuss is totally confidential.

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 offer shorter-term therapy. I also can work with those on a 12-Step Programme.

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