I offer private psychotherapy sessions to adults suffering from a range of emotional problems including anxiety, depression, mood swings, relationship problems and obsessional or compulsive behaviour, including alcohol and substance addiction.
I offer a non-judgmental and confidential space in which you will be able to speak freely about whatever has been troubling you. Drawing on my professional experience, I can help you to reach a deeper understanding of the issues you are struggling with, helping you to gain a new perspective, while enabling a process of positive change to take place.
I am a qualified psychotherapist, having trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy within the NHS at the Tavistock clinic before specialising in forensic psychodynamic psychotherapy at the Portman clinic, part of the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. For the past five years I have worked within the NHS, seeing patients for weekly psychotherapy sessions at NHS services in London and nearby areas. I have also worked in a treatment facility for patients recovering from various forms of substance addiction.
I currently have vacancies, including evening availability, for private therapy sessions, whether for the short or longer term. This would begin by arranging an initial consultation with me, where you will be able to speak freely about the nature of your difficulties. I offer remote sessions too, if it's more convenient to meet online. Get in touch with me to arrange an initial session, either by phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
British Psychoanalytic Council
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
