About me

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and

Psychodynamic Counselling in Ce

I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and psychodynamic counsellor with more than 20 years experience.  I work  face to face in London and also online for people who can’t be physically present  or live  elsewhere  in the country or outside the UK.

I work both short and long term with adults from a wide range of backgrounds.
The pandemic has brought challenges and change.  Being cooped up continually in the same space or cut off from our usual daily routines and friends and family has been difficult for many.  It can lead to anxiety and depression or  cause you to look inward at difficulties that you may have forgotten about or not yet  felt ready to face.   

Training, qualifications & experience


I completed the BACP, BCP and UKCP accredited professional training at the Westminster Pastoral Foundation, which is widely recognised as one of the foremost counselling and psychotherapy training organisations in the UK, and which maintains a reputation for both clinical and academic excellence.

· Qualification in Individual Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy - Westminster Pastoral Foundation
· Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling - Westminster Pastoral Foundation
· Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling - University of Sussex


The aim of psychoanalytic psychotherapy is to improve the quality of your life and to help you work, live and love as close to the way you most desire.

A psychoanalytic approach involves working in depth and is particularly suited if you want to get to the heart of either  long-standing or more recent problems.  It can help you deal with both conscious and unconscious aspects of your experience and personality that have contributed to making you the person you are today. This can  then enable you to understand and work with past and present difficulties, traumas, anxieties, depression and other stuck or overwhelming situations and relationships. Life long problems are challenging to resolve but if you want to find a way of living and working with them that supports you to lead as fulfilling a life as possible then  this is what I can help you with.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have found that although someone might seek counselling or therapy for a particular difficulty they are facing, it very often happens that there are other issues underlying or closely associated with it.  For example, someone might seek help with over eating only to discover that this may be associated with low self esteem, suicidal thoughts and have roots in early physical or sexual abuse.
