About Me

I am a professionally qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor. I offer safe, confidential, one-to-one psychotherapy and 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 achieve this by helping you become more aware of your experiences, beliefs and behaviours from your past and reveal how they might be affecting your thoughts, behaviours and experiences in the present. The insight gained from greater self-awareness can often lead to long-lasting, positive change.

I first started counselling over 20 years ago at Childline. I then went on to train and qualify as a psychodynamic psychotherapist at WPF Therapy and the University of Roehampton. I work in private practice in the City of London and at WPF Therapy in London Bridge. I have worked as a counsellor at the Royal College of Art and am currently a psychotherapist in the Trauma Unit at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. 

I work with adults, from adolescents to seniors, and welcome enquiries from people of any gender, ethnicity or background.​

I am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their codes of ethical standards and confidentiality. I am also a professional member of the Foundation of Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC).
