About me

How can Psychotherapy/Counselling help?

Allowing a trained professional to guide you towards a better understanding of yourself, your relationships and your present circumstances can be the first step towards taking control of your life. Psychotherapy gives you the freedom to voice the full range of your feelings without fear of reprisals or repercussions within the safety and confidentiality of the consulting room.

How can I help you?

In my practise I have experience of handling issues of depression, anxiety, bereavement, fear of changes bought about by life-cycle events such as retirement, migration from another country or city, children leaving home, menopause, divorce and other relationship break-downs. I have a special interest in helping patients who are struggling with inter-cultural issues or from feelings of difference arising from other factors.

I aim to support my patients in finding themselves so as to feel stronger to move forward in their lives.

What happens next?

We would have an initial appointment for you to find out more about the process of psychotherapy and for me to assess your needs. To arrange a session, please feel free to use my contact form and include your telephone number and I will be happy to call you back.

This first face-to-face meeting with me would help you to make an informed decision about what kind of therapy is best for you. If it seemed that the therapy I offered felt right for you we would plan a schedule of further appointments on either a fixed term or open-ended schedule.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the British Psychoanalytic Council and the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists. Both these organisations have a reputation for being the most rigorous and well regulated in the field of Psychotherapy. My membership of the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists is as a consequence of having completed my entire training within the Tavistock Clinic in London. I abide by the ethical standards of both the BPC and TSP.

While I have been concentrating solely on my private practise in Central Cambridge for some time now, I have several years experience of working as an Honorary Psychotherapist within the NHS seeing patients at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge and at St. Bartholomew’s and Homerton Hospitals in London.

I trained as a psychotherapist after many years of working as a Social Anthropologist with a book and several articles in peer-review journals in my name. Alongside Psychotherapy, I continue my interest in Social Anthropology and am a Life Member of Clare Hall College, Cambridge University.
