I am a qualified psychoanalytic psychotherapist with substantial NHS experience practising in Leytonstone area of East London. I offer a confidential space for individuals to talk and think about their concerns and difficulties.
After careful consultation over one or two sessions, I will suggest the best way forward for your particular difficulties. If I feel that another service is better suited to address your presenting problem, then I will make that recommendation.
I am experienced in working with people of diverse backgrounds and beliefs. I have a particular interest in helping people with key transition points in life, whether this is coping with new parenthood, empty nests, marriage, divorce, career changes, loss and trauma.
Training and qualifications
My professional training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy was undertaken at the British Psychotherapy Foundation (BPF) in north-west London. I have a MSc in Psychodynamics of Human Development from University of London, Birkbeck College. I am a full member of the BPF and accredited by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC), the registrant body for my professional organisation.
My experience as a psychotherapist includes work within the NHS, as well as in private practice.
My fee is £60 - £70 per session depending on time of day and frequency.
I retain a portion of my practice for patients on a low income and am therefore sometimes able to offer a reduced fee, for which I operate a sliding scale depending on your financial situation. This would be discussed at the initial consultation.
