About me

I practise psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis in central Nottingham and London.

I work within the Lacanian psychoanalytic orientation and I use a flexible and in-depth approach that respects individual differences and gives importance to the unique circumstances behind each person's distress and difficulties.

My way of working is particularly suited for clients who are experiencing a time of crisis or who are finding it hard to make sense of what is happening to them.

I often see clients who struggle with anxiety, depression and trauma, compulsive thoughts or actions, addictions, eating disorders and issues about the body, sexuality, love and relationships.

In my practice I highlight the impact of language processes on psychological change and I help my clients to find new ways of engaging with their words and thoughts to address their problems.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a PhD in Psychoanalysis and a Postgraduate Diploma in Addiction Psychology and Counselling.

I completed my clinical training at the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR) in London between 2009 and 2018, and became an analyst member of the Centre in 2018.

I have many years of experience in both private and community settings, where I have specialised in working with clients presenting different types of addiction alongside a wide range of psychiatric, psychological and emotional issues.

Between 2013 and 2017 I was service manager for the GamCare counselling service in the East Midlands area and worked as placement coordinator and clinical supervisor for an addiction charity in Nottingham.

I am a full clinical member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), of the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis College (CPJAC), and of the College of Psychoanalysts UK (CP-UK). I also hold full professional membership of the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Practitioners (FDAP) and I am an NCAC accredited Addiction Therapist.

I currently work in private practice and contribute frequently to the clinical and public seminar programme of the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research in London (www.cfar.org.uk).
