About Me


I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist and supervisor with experience working in the NHS and private practice. I offer short-term and long-term therapy to individuals, practicing at Borough, a short walk from London Bridge station. I am currently offering sessions in person, online and by phone. I also have availability for low cost supervision during the day on a weekly or twice monthly basis.

Therapy is a process which can help you identify and understand emotional difficulties that may be blocking how you want to live. You might feel stuck in a rut or very low. You might be experiencing fear or anxiety. You may be finding relationships hard going, repeating the same patterns, or finding it difficult to feel close to people.

Talking to a professional allows you to share the things that may be troubling you in a confidential and accepting space. Examining your inner world and exploring feelings and habits that have gone unrecognised can allow you to create positive shifts in mind and enable change over time. By looking at your life, both past and present, it’s possible to become aware of patterns and motivations that may have been hard to make sense of alone.

Speaking to a therapist is different to the kind of conversations possible with friends, family, even partners. The aim of psychodynamic psychotherapy is deep seated change and personal growth over time. Meeting weekly at the same day and time provides a safe, reliable and containing space for this to develop.

If you would like to know more email me to arrange an initial meeting. The initial meeting gives a sense of how we might work together. Sometimes it may be helpful to meet again before deciding if therapy is the right fit for you. Weekly sessions are for 50 minutes on a regular day and time each week that we both agree on.
