About Me

Coronavirus Update - August 19th

I am continuing to work remotely for the foreseeable future. I am able to offer therapy via the telephone, or via Zoom/Skype for those would prefer it. 

Looking for a little help?

I offer a confidential and non-judgemental space to explore what ails you. I am a psychoanalytic therapist, which means using language to understand your beliefs about yourself and your place in the world, and how these beliefs can limit you. But where the classic notion of the analyst is one who is mostly silent, I prefer something more like a conversation. I tend toward being direct and saying what I think is happening rather than maintaining a mysterious silence. 

I have seen many individuals and couples over the last six years I have spent in private practise. In my view the key requirement for those seeking therapy is curiosity about the self. If I had to choose a speciality it would be the following presentations:

* Depression

* Anxiety

* Lacking a sense of direction

* Personal relations leave a bitter taste in the mouth

* Struggle to know what will make you happy

* Self-critical

Contact me today for a consultation. The consultation will give you an opportunity to see if you feel you can use the help I am offering. At the end of the consultation we will discuss the best course of action and agree a therapy plan.

I offer a five minute telephone call free of charge - useful for determining if you wish to proceed to a consultation.

My fee for individuals is £60 per session during the day, £80 after 5pm; £90 for couples. Consultations are charged as a normal session.

I also reserve a limited number of spaces during the day for people on low incomes. In these cases we can negotiate fees based on your circumstances.

I am registered with AXA PPP Healthcare, Aviva, Vitality Health, and Aetna insurance companies.

Training and qualifications

I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, a Full Clinical Member of the UKCP, and a registered member of the BACP. I completed a four-year training at the Guild of Psychotherapists to gain UKCP accreditation.

I was a counsellor, and later a supervisor, at ChildLine for three years. I spent two years as an associate therapist in an eating disorders clinic in Central London, offering treatment to those with a difficult relationship with food. I have worked in private practice for six years.
