My Approach

In the unique and confidential setting that psychotherapy provides, it is possible to have very different kinds of conversation than you might with a friend or family member. Many different things could lead you to seek psychotherapy:
At times of crisis, distress or a recognition you are stuck in repeated old patterns, it can be fruitful talking to someone who is not involved in your life. Someone, such as myself, who is trained to help you think in productive, though challenging ways. Therapy is not easy, though life circumstances that bring you to seek therapy may not be easy either.
At whatever depth, conversations with a therapist such as myself can allow you to see things from another perspective and ultimately this can foster change as you deepen and widen your understanding of yourself and others. You may want to explore what makes you the person you are, or you may want to look at a particular concern or issue.
I do not specialise in any one particular area. What often happens is you start wanting to address one thing and as the sessions progress other things emerge that may be just as important. Bringing initially what is important to you, I expect anything to unfold during these conversations.
Psychotherapy can challenge patterns of thought and behaviour and reveal hidden aspects that might be impeding you. Your thoughts, ways of relating, feelings, memories and dreams are the materials I work with. Therapy is a collaboration and I aim to work with you at a pace and depth that suits you.

About Me

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist providing psychotherapy and supervision at my private practice in Camberwell. With a background in the arts and education, I went on to train as a psychotherapist at WPF Therapy and qualified in 2003. I am also accredited by UKCP and am a member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling and South East London Counselling. I have 15 years of experience as a therapist in the NHS in both primary and secondary care.

Before training as a psychotherapist, I worked with people with difficulties such as housing and homelessness, addiction problems, refugees, people with mental health problems and with people in secure psychiatric settings.
