About Me

There are many different kinds of therapy but at the heart of all successful therapies is a strong, reliable and robust relationship with your therapist. It’s important that you feel comfortable with me and are able to be honest about how you are feeling – even when that feels painful or difficult.

I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy which is a less intensive form of psychoanalysis. It uses similar techniques, but aims to find quicker solutions to more immediate problems. We will talk about your personal relationships and the thoughts you have about other people. I’ll encourage you to discuss the past as well as the present.

Sooner or later, clients often find themselves thinking about their childhood, as this is such a formative period. However, this certainly isn’t the essential point of psychotherapy. The aim is to address what is happening now in your mental life, consciously and unconsciously, and in your relationships. So the present and the future are far more important than the past for the past’s sake. Even so, exploring your memories and feelings about your childhood can help you to identify links between past events and how you think, act and feel now.

Training and qualifications

 I am a fully qualified Psychodynamic Psychotherapist with experience of working in the NHS and charity sector as well as private practice.  I gained an MSc in the Psychodynamics of Human Development from the University of London followed by a further 4-year, rigorous postgraduate clinical training at WPF Therapy – one of the UK’s leading psychotherapy training centres. I am a member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC) and am bound by their code of ethics.

I am trained to offer open-ended, long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy, as well as time-limited, short-term counselling.  I draw upon psychoanalytic and psychodynamic approaches. I offer a secure and confidential environment in which to explore your difficulties and establish a treatment plan that will be specific to your needs.

I have experience in treating a range of psychological and emotional disorders including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss and bereavement and relationship problems. In my NHS practice I specialised in working with adult survivors of child sexual abuse.
