Honest, effective, creative treatment, grounded in evidence.
I am an established private UKCP registered psychotherapist. NHS trained and experienced in leading evidence-based treatments and in Integrative Psychotherapy, I tailor a way of working to meet your unique needs and personality style to help you achieve genuine sustainable progress.
Working from my practises in City of London, Harley Street & Mayfair, I help people with a wide range of difficulties, from complex diagnosed mental health conditions, to feelings of depression and anxiety, low self esteem, and difficult relationship and workplace problems.
Outside my direct clinical work I regularly contribute to media outlets such as BBC on issues surrounding mental health and am a Board and Executive Committee member of the International Attachment Network, an international psychotherapy training and educational organisation. I also as a UKCP supervisor in training, offer low cost supervision to psychological clinicians.
I am trained in Integrative, Psychodynamic (Attachment based), Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT) and am informed by developments in neurobiology and contemporary trauma treatment and stabilization techniques including but not limited to mindfulness.
This broad training means I can offer comprehensive help to each client for example, providing plenty of space for you to tell your story, placing a greater or lesser emphasis on your childhood, using more or less structured thinking and diagrams, or perhaps trying gentle but effective behavioural experiments or body based emotional regulatory techniques.
I believe that the key to good treatment lies in a strong therapeutic relationship. I work in a warm, supportive, open and collaborative way, making sure your voice is heard and respected and that you come to understand yourself; your needs, conflicts, anxieties, defenses, and relational patterns on a much deeper level, enabling you to explore alternative ways of being and relating, to help bring you greater satisfaction and stability.
I believe that it is important that you understand the pyschotherapeutic process and your progress. I regularly offer and invite feedback.
