About Me

I am a fully qualified psychotherapist with experience in clinical and private settings. I work psychodynamically from Jungian perspective which means that am trying, alongside you, to find the underlying cause for your distress. We do this by discussing your experiences, feelings, recurrent dreams and memories.

My expertise is in interpersonal relationships and I use a combination of psychodynamic, attachment-based and Jungian approaches to help individuals think about their relationships.

Relationships are the most important and most difficult part of our existence. They can be the place where we feel the most creative and alive but they can also leave us vulnerable to abandonment, unhealthy dependancy, feelings of impotence and despair. My aim is to open a safe space where fears, doubts and anxieties around intimacy can be understood and worked through. If you are struggling with intimate relationships, it feels difficult to find and keep a partner, a recent break-up is keeping you hostage or your relationships are following the same pattern, it might be crucial to find someone you can talk to instead of bottling everything up. We can also explore issues around sexual identity, desire, sexuality or sexual performance, sexual abuse, affairs and betrayal.

Sometimes the way we are in relationships is linked with childhood experiences and traumas. The ways our first love objects have met our needs can have a profound impact on our mental health, self-esteem, and ability to pursue our desires in the present. Lack of understanding or conflicts with parents or siblings can affect your very sense of self and how you are in the world. You can't change your past but it is important to explore these so they don't determine your future.

I also work with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, loss and bereavement. I'm very interested in giftedness and I'm aware how vulnerable and sensitive gifted people can be. I have experience in student counselling and I work with young artists in Royal College of Art.
