My Approach

I am an experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist based in south west London, offering both, in person or remote therapy. I offer a safe space for individuals seeking help with their emotional difficulties.

There are many reasons why people seek psychotherapy, however, sometimes, you might not even know or understand what is troubling you or holding you back. My aim is to offer you a safe space, where together we can work on identifying what may be causing your distress, explore whether there may be past patterns which might be contributing to your difficulties, and to help you to make sense of your world, your relationships and to lead a more fulfilled life.

I have experience working with a number of different emotional problems, such as:

Affairs and Betrayals
Body dysmorphia
Eating disorders
Family relationships
Grief or Issues around Loss
Health Anxiety
Issues around Pregnancy or Abortion
Lack of direction or sense of purpose
Panic Attacks
Physical or Emotional Abuse
Self esteem issues
Sexual Abuse
Sexual Difficulties
Work related stress

About Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a talking treatment which aims to help the sufferer better understand their feelings and overcome emotional difficulties. If you haven't had psychotherapy before, you may feel anxious about what it entails and you may have some questions. It's paramount that you feel safe with your therapist, which can make choosing someone you have never met before to work with, a daunting experience. In order to gain a better understanding of what brings you to therapy, how we might work together and to fully explore whether therapy is right for you at this time, I offer one sometimes, two consultation sessions. These introductory sessions can also give you a chance to experience what therapy may be like. If we agree to proceed, therapy will take place weekly at an agreed time in a totally confidential, open and non judgemental environment. The sessions will last for 50 minutes.

How long will it take before I start feeling better?

There is no 'one size fits all' approach to psychotherapy, so each person's experience will be unique. I offer open ended psychotherapy, using predominantly psychodynamic and relational models, where we work in an in-depth way to explore your problems; but sometimes, short term, time limited work, over 12 sessions, where we focus on a specific issue or navigate through a difficult period, can be an option if it's appropriate for your situation.

What Benefits can be Expected?

Each step of the way, we work together to understand what might be causing your distress and as we move forward, we may uncover patterns or dynamics from your past, which may have some bearing on your current situation. However long you choose to be in therapy, the insight gained from increased self awareness in the process, can help to enhance many areas of your life, from:

-improving your relationships
-increasing your self-esteem
-alleviating anxiety
-managing stress
-improving your mood
-alleviating suffering
-improving sexual relationships
-gaining confidence in your sense of self or your identity
-building resilience to help you better manage emotional issues, traumatic situations or issues you may face around loss or grief

First steps

Following on from your initial enquiry, I aim to respond within 24 hours to arrange a time for us to have a quick chat over the phone, where we can then schedule a face to face, no obligation consultation either in person or over Zoom at a mutually agreeable time.

We may have more than one consultation session so that we can gain a better understanding of how we might work together and so that you have a chance to experience what therapy may be like and to fully explore whether therapy is right for you at this time. As with the therapy sessions, the consultations also last 50 minutes.
