About Me

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 and non-judgemental 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 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.

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 people who suffer from anxiety, depression, binge eating disorder and bulimia. I'm interested in giftedness and I'm aware how vulnerable and sensitive gifted people can be.

Initial consultation is 50 minutes long and there is a flat fee of £80. 

We can agree about the fee for regular sessions during the initial consultation. My usual rates are in the range of £65-£80 depending on income but some consideration can be given to your particular circumstances.

There are reduced fee rates for students and young artists (depending on availability).

Training and qualifications

I have done a rigorous training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy at WPF Therapy - one of the most established institutions in the UK. I hold a PhD in Cultural Anthropology and I have particular interest in different cultures, mythology and narratives that shape our thinking. I have experience in student counselling and I work with young artists in Royal College of Art. I have accomplished a number of Certificate and Diploma courses at the Society of Analytical Psychology, including Transitions: Adolescence into Adulthood and Clinical Practice from Jungian Perspective.
