My Approach

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy can be a way to help you think about what might be going on for you, especially during stressful times when there are often more obvious possibilities for change. To have a neutral space to think, and perhaps most importantly, hear yourself think, can make a positive difference to you, and eventually, those around you. In this way, talking and feeling listened to, even if only during a brief stretch of counselling or more open-ended psychotherapy, can subtly and profoundly change the course of a life.

About Me

If you're looking for online psychotherapy, I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist offering therapy via Zoom, based in central Cambridge for when it will be possible to meet in person again. Please email me to arrange an initial online consultation if you would like to give yourself the chance to speak freely about whatever is on your mind. Once we have found a time that works, I will send you a link to meet online on Zoom and we can discuss what would be affordable for you. Please let me know any access requirements when you email.

I trained at The Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis in London, with more than seven years’ experience of working one-to-one with people through Mind in Cambridgeshire (now CPSL Mind) and at SHP (Single Homeless Project) in London, as well as at The Cogwheel Trust and at Salus Wellness in Cambridge. Some of the people I have worked with have come to therapy to talk about anxiety and depression having had experience of bereavement and other life-changing losses, sexual abuse, chronic health problems, alcohol and drug addiction, and loneliness.

I have some understanding of the particular pressures that can be associated with living in Cambridge and academic life in general, often away from family support and important relationships, sometimes alongside issues around migration or with a sense of isolation. I offer what can be thought of as contemporary psychoanalytic psychotherapy, with curiosity about ideas around gender, sexuality, racialised identity, family origins, and diverse abilities.

Cost:

Please email me so we can find a mutually convenient time to meet on Zoom to talk about whatever is on your mind. You will have a chance to take time to think about whether it might be interesting to work together and if you decide to continue, we can agree a fair fee. Session fee will be based on individual circumstances. We would agree to meet online once weekly, or more often, if that would be useful for the work.
