About me

Many of the problems that trouble us in life are rooted in parts of our minds that are largely unconscious. Like an iceberg, we may be aware only of the difficulties that break the surface. That's why the bigger issues are hard to attend to.

I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy, the type of therapy that recognises this truth and provides a safe space to listen to such anxieties, stress, feeling low, or other personal struggles. The therapy would be carefully focused on what you want to bring, whilst also seeking different ways of listening to what those concerns could mean, particularly in terms of future flourishing.

Alongside my psychotherapeutic work, I have longstanding experience in pastoral and spiritual work. Often, psychotherapy can help unblock issues here too.

It can also be helpful to explore things at a systemic level, that is, thinking about how problems in life can arise from family histories, places of origin, and other transpersonal concerns.

Psychotherapy can be for a fixed term, perhaps of 12 weeks, or it can be open-ended. Many people prefer the latter because it allows time for deeper issues to emerge. We would meet at the same time and place each week, a pattern that greatly helps this kind of exploration.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at WPF Therapy, a leading clinic and institute in London.

I also work at the Maudsley Hospital in south London.

My professional clinical affiliations are with The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and The Foundation For Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC).
