About me

I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor, accredited with the British Psychoanalytic Council and have a private practice in London N1.

My previous early background is in Fine Art, within which I received an MA. I later studied Health Psychology, obtaining an honours degree and worked in the Mental Health charitable sector, for 12 years, where I gained valuable experience in Mental Health Advocacy and Community facilitation and a deeper understanding of individual differences and the impact of psychological distress and mental health issues.

In my capacity as a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor, accredited with the British Psychoanalytic Council, I have worked alongside clients experiencing emotional distress for a variety of reasons: low self-esteem, relationship difficulties (jealousy and envy); anxiety; depression; bereavement and loss; obsessional thoughts and behaviours and disordered eating.

My focus is to work with my client's, towards enabling a greater sense of the meaning of their symptoms and their underlying causes, within the context in which they have arisen: to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of developmental and environmental influences. This can lead to the processing of difficult feelings, such as fear, anger, shame and guilt and build on the capacity within each individual to reach their potential and re-discover positive, life affirming experiences.
