I use both psychodynamic and attachment theory to guide my work with clients, meaning that I address both conscious and unconscious processes and motivations, as well as drawing on neuroscience as an evidence-based way of understanding emotional experience.
Attachment-based psychotherapy places particular emphasis on the lasting imprint of childhood experience. Attachment therapy delves into the legacy of our earliest relationships and how they continue to shape our relational expectations as adults.
A strong therapeutic alliance, built on trust, is essential for the work of therapy. I work with clients to build a relationship which can provide a safe haven at times of trouble and a secure base from which to explore all aspects of life.

Before training as a psychotherapist, I worked as a litigation solicitor in the City.
