About Me

 

 

I am a psychotherapist in private practice. My experience working in the NHS and voluntary sector has helped me appreciate the diverse needs and wishes of people who come to therapy and the variety of issues that they bring, including: depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, eating disorders, chronic pain, illness, abuse, health conditions and relationship difficulties.

My study of psychoanalysis, as well as trainings in somatic practice and dance, contribute to a strongly held belief in the importance of working towards mind-body integration and a feeling of wholeness. For this reason I pay attention to what is both spoken and unspoken and am interested in the way that physical symptoms might offer us insights into psychological experiences.

I invite patients to talk about their past, dreams and fantasies as a way of illuminating current or recurring difficulties, and believe that working together in a context of empathy, acceptance and appropriate challenge can lead to increased self-understanding and can facilitate a process of deep change.

I am a member of The British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists and abide by their ethical framework.

Training and qualifications

As an undergraduate, I was educated in Literature and History at Oxford University. I later trained as a psychotherapist and subsequently did an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy. I am currently undertaking further study at the Institute of Psychoanalysis in London and The Centre for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies in New York.

My psychoanalytic commitments are informed and supported by my understanding of the body and somatic practice. I am a yoga teacher (Yoga Aliiance, BWY), and have a Diploma in Biodynamic massage.
