About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist working in central Cambridge. My practice is based in CB1 where I offer psychodynamic psychotherapy. I have a particular interest in working with childhood trauma/complex PTSD and bodily symptoms associated with this.

Some of the issues I can help with:-

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • trauma
  • addiction
  • self-harm
  • relationship and family issues
  • spiritual crisis

How I work and what to expect

I offer a safe and confidential, non-judgmental space where you can talk openly about your current personal circumstances and past experiences. You will be able to talk about what is troubling you, and together we will work to bring about understanding. Talking therapy can help to make sense of difficulties such as loss, anxiety, depression and health issues.

I have experience working with a wide-range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship and family issues, trauma & complex PTSD, addiction, codependency, self-harm, and childhood loss, abuse and neglect.

My approach

I work as a psychodynamic psychotherapist. I have a deep interest in and study of trauma theory, relational neuroscience and attachment theory. I also have a particular interest in attending to dreams and imagery as part of the therapeutic process.

Where I work

My practice is based in central Cambridge and is easily accessible from the train station and the centre of town, a 12 minute walk from Cambridge train station or 5 minute walk from Mill Road or Hills Road.
