About me

Perhaps you are feeling anxious, depressed, angry or stressed. These are feelings which can overwhelm and keep you stuck and unable to get on with your life.
Perhaps you find yourself thinking that you often feel this way and that you cant seem to 'shake it off'.  Or it maybe that something has happened recently that you can't seem to recover from, you can't get yourself back on an even footing.

It takes some courage to seek out support and help and yet talking to someone can bring a great deal of relief:   to be listened to and taken seriously.

I offer a safe and confidential space to talk and think about your feelings and concerns. Talking and thinking in this particular way, offers the possibility of understanding patterns of thought and behaviour. Such patterns  may have developed over time and are being repeated in the present and can cause difficulties in current relationships.

As a Tavistock trained Psychotherapist, with over 20 years of experience, I work with individuals, helping them with their difficulties: gradually bringing unconscious thoughts and feelings into consciousness, which I believe can help with development in many areas of life.

I studied at the Tavistock completing an MA in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and the intermediate clinical training in Intercultural Psychotherapy.
I also initially completed a diploma and further diploma in Psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy at MHCPC and a Diploma in Art Therapy.

I have been working as Psychotherapist for over 20 years. Whilst I have maintained a private practice, I have also worked in a variety of different settings: in the Trauma Unit at the Tavistock Portman NHS Trust, with Scots who now live in London through the charity Scotscare, with refugees and asylum seekers at the British Red Cross, at a Women's Refuge and with a charity that supports mothers with new babies.

I am currently co-authoring a paper for a journal and a chapter on the setting up of the Psychotherapy Service for Refugees and Asylum seekers at the British Red Cross, which I hope will be published in 2018.
