BA (Hons), PGDip Psychotherapist

Hello and welcome. I am a professionally qualified and experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor. I offer online video, telephone and when possible face-to-face psychotherapy. I have a particular interest in building confidence and emotional resilience. I also specialise in reducing anxiety, treating depression and understanding the effects of psychological trauma.

My aim is to help you make sense of your world and live a more satisfying life. 

I practise in the City of London and am a registered member of both the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am also a professional member of the Foundation of Psychotherapy and Counselling.

Why have

Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a talking treatment for the mind using psychological methods instead of medical ones.

 

Psychodynamic psychotherapy works by illuminating our experiences, beliefs and behaviours from the past, revealing how they might be affecting our thoughts, behaviours and experiences in the present.

The insight gained through greater self-awareness can often improve relationships, alleviate emotional suffering and bring about helpful changes in the present. This can lead to long-lasting, positive change.

Psychotherapy can be helpful when emotional suffering becomes too much and at times of crisis when life can feel difficult or unmanageable. There are many reasons why people turn to psychotherapy. Here are just a few: 

  • Building emotional resilience

  • Gaining confidence

  • Improving relationships

  • Reducing anxiety, stress and panic

  • Coming to terms with loss, grief or trauma

  • Improving mood and self-esteem 

  • Alleviating thoughts of self-harm

  • Being confident with identity and sexuality

  • Recovering from eating disorders

  • Understanding yourself better
