About me

Talking about your life, your problems and your feelings with a professional psychotherapist who does not know you, may seem very daunting initially, but actually most clients find the experience really helpful.

My approach is relational and I see psychotherapy as a collaborative venture; I believe that the success of the therapy will depend largely upon the quality of the relationship between the client and the therapist.

I aim to create a safe and non-judgmental environment in which any issue can be explored and place great emphasis on respectfulness, integrity and confidentiality.

I trained as an attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist and my clinical work is particularly influenced by attachment and psychodynamic theories.

I offer short-term counselling and open-ended psychotherapy to meet each individual’s specific needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy
  • Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • Member of The Bowlby Centre

I am a member of the UKCP and The Bowlby Centre and abide by their codes of ethics.

Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I qualified as a lawyer and practised for several years. I believe this experience has made me more able to understand pressures and dynamics which get set up at work.
