My Approach

I offer in-depth one-to-one talking therapy to adults (18+) who have a variety of concerns including stress, anxiety, unsatisfactory relationships, sleep problems, sexual issues, depressive states, obsessional states, fear, anger and traumatic experiences. My therapeutic approach can also enhance the lives of people who experience a loss of meaning in their lives, or feel they are alienated from their potentials or those who are seeking a greater sense of fulfilment in life.

About Me

I am an accredited psychotherapist with a speciality in adult psychodynamic psychotherapy. I maintain accreditations of BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council, the UK’s leading professional association for psychoanalytic psychotherapy), and UKCP (CPJA college) and abide by their ethical codes and professional standards. I am a member of the  Association for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the NHS. 

My academic and clinical training affiliations are with the Psychoanalysis Unit of the University College London (UCL), the WPF Therapy, the Alliance MBS University of Manchester and the London Institute of Psychoanalysis.

I hold an updated DBS Enhanced Certificate for working with Adults and Children.

Alongside my private practice, I provide psychodynamic psychotherapy to patients in the NHS Secondary Care and within the occupational health sector as well as within the student counselling service at the University of Cambridge. In addition to clinical work, I provide education and supervision in the third sector of mental health service providers and psychotherapy training organisations. In the past, I worked in consultancy and research in leadership and organisational studies.
