Training, qualifications & experience

I work in private practice. I originally trained at WPF Therapy, London, one of the leading academic and clinical institutions for psychodynamic psychotherapy training in the UK.

I am a registered professional member of the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) and the FPC (Foundation for Counselling and Psychotherapy). In order to enhance my practice, I participate in regular continuing professional development (CPD).
