My Approach

My approach is psychoanalytic based but flexible and relational, adapting to the needs of the individual. My experience has given me valuable insights, working with a diverse range of individuals and cultures, across the full spectrum of mental health presentations.

First Consultation - what to expect?

I invite potential patients to meet for an initial consultation or two, with the aim of understanding what brought them here, reach a formulation about the problem and what would be helpful at this point in time. If psychoanalytic psychotherapy is not for you , I will be able to advise and make a recommendation that would be helpful to you and why!

I also currently deliver supervision for teams and individual therapists and reflective practice to organisations.
