My Approach

I take a non-judgemental kind and patient approach to my work. It's important to quickly build a feeling of safety trust and rapport.

I focus exclusively on my clients - my role is to support you, and I bring all of myself into the sessions, whilst also enabling and empowering you,

I'm pretty relaxed - i.e. not formal or distant. I'll work flexibly and I'm informed by what I and you find works in the sessions.

I might also encourage you to talk about how the therapy itself feels to you (i.e. how you feel about me). Sometimes this explorational can be transformational, but it doesn't always happen and that's OK as well,

I tend to work with my clients at least once a week, on the same day and time of the week. Having said that I'm also flexible if a client wishes to have a break or can't always make the same time each week (but a few days notice is very helpful).

I have a range of experience, from short term to much longer periods of therapy. I've worked with clients with more significant mental health issues, as well as those with short term and very specific challenges. It's OK with me to start therapy without knowing exactly how long it will last or where it will go.

In term of fees, I'm also flexible. Although my standard fee is £70 per session, I'm willing to significantly reduce the fee, if someone approaches me for therapy who can't afford that. I typically work with clients from £40 a session upwards, but am open to an approach if £40 isn't affordable. It's easier for me to offer online therapy at a lower cost (because I don't have room hire costs to build into me fee).

About Me

I am a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist mostly working in South West London. I qualified in 2003.

I have worked for over 20 years in various charities and in school governance and in private practice.

Prior to training as a Psychotherapist, I was a Buddhist monk for 6 years and mindfulness sometimes informs my work as a therapist.

  • Companies
  • Individuals
  • Private healthcare referrals

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I have worked extensively with anxiety, panic attacks and other fears and worries. Anxiety is sometimes thought about as an experience everyone shares. Sometimes we become fixed on a particular trigger. Sometimes anxiety seems to be without an obvious cause. There are often clues, memories, associations for example that help us unpack what can seem so bizarre or disproportionate. Talking and thinking about anxiety and related feelings can help process an issue which isn't always clear to start out with.
I have worked extensively with bereavement. I appreciate the way bereavement can affect people, the range of emotions and the impact it can have on so many aspects of our lives. There is a reality that can be extremely difficult to truly accept and it often helps to rebuild our lives around the loss, find ways to keep our lost loved one alive in our minds, and find the same value we lost in the other relationships in our lives.
I have supported people with cancer and their relatives. I appreciate the shock of early news, the difficulty of making surgery decisions, the vulnerability and other emotions that cancer can bring up, and I appreciate the challenge of living with cancer, even after successful surgery. Therapy can provide an opportunity to talk and think about these responses, understand how cancer is affecting you, and reconcile yourself to this new reality, potentially with a greater appreciation of what matters most to you.
I have worked with a number of clients who were born outside of the UK and whose parents were born outside of the UK. I appreciate the challenge of difference cultures within and outside of the home or family. Cultural issues can be hugely challenging, for example when there is tension between being authentic to oneself, while also fitting in to others' expectations. Therapy can help navigate these challenges.
I have worked with a number of clients considering divorce or who have gone through divorce. I appreciate the relationship and wider difficulties that can lead to divorce, the challenges of the process itself, and challenges of the aftermath. A divorce is a hugely significant life event, when focused support can build self-awareness and resilience through such a difficult period.
