About me

I am  a qualified Psychodynamic Therapist , I hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy  from Birkbeck College (University of London) and am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and  Psychotherapists (BACP).

I have  years of experience  working as a Psychodynamic therapist; my clinical  experience includes  working  at the  Students Counselling Services at Kings College University London, NHS Psychotherapy Departments, and  the private sector.

I work with my clients in a safe and contained   environment to explore with them the issues that are troubling them and origins of their present difficulties that they  find themselves stuck in, and perhaps compelled to repeat the same pattern of behaviour time and again. I aim to  bring to awareness of the blind spots  that one  may have, and try to find together an alternative view of oneself and others.

The initial session   will be consultation to give you an opportunity to talk confidentially  about the issues you want to address in therapy, as well decide if this is the right  therapy for you to proceed.

I work ethically and no judgementally , abiding  by the (BACP)   code of conduct
