About Me

Sometimes, life can be very challenging and difficult. We might find ourselves with persistent feelings of ongoing anxiety or depression, or noticing that we are not able to live our life in the way we want to in terms of relating to others authentically, and achieving the things we want to accomplish. 

Psychotherapy can provide a fruitful space for exploring these difficulties. Through therapy, it becomes possible to explore the underlying reasons for problems and troubling feelings, allowing us to begin to free themselves and make constructive changes in our lives.

Whatever brings a person to therapy, I am interested in working alongside them, to help foster a better understanding about what underlies the difficulties they are experiencing. 

I offer both short-term and longer-term therapy, on a once-weekly or more intensive basis (e.g. twice or three times weekly). The model of therapy depends on your needs and concerns, and is something we would discuss in initial sessions.

I work from two consulting rooms: Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire (HP9) and Bloomsbury, central London. 

My Beaconsfield practice is on Ledborough Lane, which is a 4 minute walk from Beaconsfield train station. There is off-street and free street parking available.

My London practice is located on Bloomsbury Street (WC1B), a short walk from Tottenham Court Road, Holborn, or Goodge Street Stations.

Training and qualifications

I gained my PG Diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy at WPF, a well established and respected psychotherapy training institution in London. I am also a Jungian analyst at the British Jungian Analytic assication. 

I am trained in Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) which is a time-limited model of therapy occurring across 16 weeks, focused on treating anxiety and depression. It explores difficulties in the past that continue to affect the way people feel, behave and relate to others in the present.

I am a professional member of the FPC (The Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling), and am a registered member of the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy). I adhere to the code of practice and ethics of these professional bodies.
