About me

I am an experienced UKCP Registered Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist employed by the NHS, but I also work in Private Practice.

I provide short-term and longer-term individual therapy for adults, adolescents and children. I also offer family consultations and couples therapy. I have an enhanced CRB and abide by the code of ethics set out by the UKCP.

I have gained extensive experience working with people who present with many different emotional and psychological difficulties, such as problematic relationships, identity issues, sadness and loss, anxiety and depression. These difficulties can often result in self-destructive behaviours which can affect us in every day life and underly relationship conflicts.

Therapy can provide a safe space in which past traumatic experiences and difficult feelings can be thought about. Often in the therapeutic work we can identify repetitive patterns of behaviour and this awareness can result in a greater understanding of your self. This insight can result in therapeutic change. The therapeutic relationship provides an opportunity for you to feel heard and understood which in turn can help improve the quality of personal relationships and in how we view ourselves.
