My Approach

I understand that seeking therapy or counselling is a big step.

You may be feeling stuck, depressed or anxious, you may have experienced past trauma that still needs attention, or perhaps you simply wish to gain a deeper understanding of yourself.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is focused on understanding how early experiences and relationships might continue to affect us today. A strong therapeutic relationship or "alliance" will allow difficult feelings to be felt and explored safely, which can lead to profound change.

I work with clients on an open-ended basis, or for a fixed number of sessions (usually 12).

I work online or from a consulting room in the City, close to Monument tube and 10 minutes walk from London Bridge and Liverpool St stations.

Booking a first session can feel daunting, and also financially risky. I offer a free 15-20 minute phone call for this reason, so you can get a sense of whether you would like to work with me, and so I can understand a little about what is bringing you to therapy and how I might help.

About Me

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist working in the NHS and in private practice, with a particular interest in trauma, depression, LGBTQ+ issues, and questions of culture and identity.

I completed a rigorous four year postgraduate training at WPF Therapy, one of the UK's leading therapy and training providers. My previous experience includes teaching and journalism and these areas inform my practice.
