About me

About Me

I am an experienced psychotherapist based in Surbiton working across a range of issues but with a special interest in anxiety and depression. I offer face-to-face, open-ended therapy giving us the space and time to explore and address any sources of distress.

My Approach

I use a psychodynamic approach, working with you to explore the root causes of your current difficulties that often lie in your past experiences. This greater understanding can lead to new insights and self-awareness that trigger change and bring hope.

First Steps

I understand making the first step towards therapy can be challenging and provoke some anxiety, but I will be there to support you through the journey right from our first point of contact.

You can contact me by phone or email, whichever you feel most comfortable.

Initial Consultation

Our initial meeting will be to discuss what brings you to therapy at this particular time. It gives you the opportunity to decide if the way I work appeals to you and if you feel we are a good fit. This meeting is longer than a usual therapy session and will last slightly longer than an hour.
