My practice is based in the psychoanalytic approach.
I believe that in addition to what we are conscious of, there are other aspects of ourselves that we are less, or not, conscious of, and that this has an impact on us and our capacity to engage and enjoy relationships and life in general. Psychoanalytic work aims to understand these aspects and helps the person to feel relieved, recover quicker and to develop and lead an happier life.
I am a fully registered practitioner with 20 years of experience working in London. I work with adults who have a diagnosis of anxiety, depression, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress, ADHD, Asperger Syndrome and personality disorders. I also work with adults with presenting issues such as loss, identity development, self harm, suicidality, procrastination and creative and academic work process. Apart from private practice, much of my experience was gained through working as a Counsellor and Head of Service at the Royal College of Art, Cambridge University and Goldsmith's College.
I accept self-referrals, GP referrals, Psychiatric/Mental Health Team referrals and Bupa, AXAPPP, Cigna, Aviva and Vitality referrals.
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.
