My Approach

I work psychoanalytically. This means that in this talking therapy we will give attention to the whole of you including your past, present and future, your conscious and your unconscious worlds. The connections that emerge between your words, thoughts and feelings will give the clues we need. Don't worry if you don't know exactly how to present the question you want to answer; we'll work on it together.
You may not know at the outset what, exactly, you want to achieve, and any number of reasons could have brought you to therapy in the first place. It is important to remember that this will be your own therapy, and unlike anybody else's. A particular problem or issue in your professional, creative or family life could be causing you distress, or things may be not quite right in some way that you can’t define; motivations are as individual as people. As your therapist I do not tell you about yourself, but listen to what you tell me that you may not be hearing. I have worked with depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, family issues and abuse, sexual and racial harassment, the aftermath of assault by members of the armed forces and the police, gender dysphoria, artistic and creative blocking, addiction and self-harm to name only a few, and each client has brought their own particularity to the work.

About Me

Psychotherapy in Hackney and online.

My experience comes from my years of work in private practice and as an honorary psychotherapist at the Guild of Psychotherapists and counsellor at Mind.

I draw also on many years’ work as a lawyer. In the East End of London, representing clients who were tangled in situations involving domestic violence, neglect and control, and then injuries in dangerous industries and housing, I learned about the complex interactions that exist between economics, culture, politics and mental wellbeing. It was through my work with soldiers suffering from serious mental health problems as a result of their service that I found my interest in psychotherapy..
