My Approach

I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy and have also been trained and have experience in using the mentalisation approach as well as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques.

About Me

I am a Psychiatrist and trained in the NHS Medical Psychotherapist. I work as a Consultant Medical Psychotherapist and Psychiatrist in the NHS. I have a small private practice. As a private psychotherapist I offer intensive individual psychodynamic psychotherapy. I would normally offer an initial assessment and once we agree about the person's need I offer treatment approach. I would normally produce a comprehensive report for the patient and will share this if agreed with the patient's GP.
I have 25+ years experience in the NHS as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist. My country of origin is Bulgaria.

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 developed interest in working as a psychotherapist with people who live with the symptoms and behaviour of eating disorders and in particular, anorexia nervosa.
In my NHS work I consistently work with patients who have lived with hopelessness, helplessness and recurrent thoughts that life is not worth living. My approach is to enable the patient to verbalise the thoughts that feel unbearable.
I have worked with patients who live with life long consequences of trauma and loss, not infrequently experienced during early childhood years. My interest is to engage the person in a therapeutic relationship that feels safe and enabling.
