BA (Hons), PGDip Psychotherapist
Hello. I am a professionally qualified psychodynamic
psychotherapist with many years of training and experience in both private practice and the NHS. I offer in-person, online and telephone 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 work in private practice in the City of London and am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I abide by their codes of ethical standards and confidentiality. I have also worked as a psychotherapist in the Trauma Unit at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust.
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 distress 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
Reducing anxiety, stress and panic
Coming to terms with loss and grief
Improving mood and self-esteem
Alleviating thoughts of self-harm
Being confident with identity and sexuality
Recovery from trauma
Understanding yourself better
An opportunity to think about what is troubling you and consider whether psychotherapy can help
Up to 12 psychotherapy sessions which are usually focused on a particular issue or specific goal
