I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist working with clients from a variety of different backgrounds and cultures who suffer from a broad range of issues including trauma, dissociative experiences, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem and destructive behaviours. My specialist research interest is in fertility and menstruation.
I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist, supervisor and tutor registered to work with adults. Therapy offers a private, confidential, non-judgemental space in which clients can feel listened to and understood. The key differentiator between psychodynamic / psychoanalytic psychotherapy and all other therapies is a commitment to discovering and understanding the nature and character of a person’s unconscious. Identifying and discovering thoughts, feelings, emotions and memories that are repressed and stored in the unconscious can be enlightening and a catalyst for change and reparation. Therapy can be challenging but it can also be creative.
I work with clients who present with a wide range of issues, emotions and disturbances from depression, anxiety and a lack of self-esteem to phobic tendencies and somatic disorders. Clients who have experienced abuse, neglect, loss and difficulty making healthy, sustainable attachments also find it helpful to process and work through such events.
I have a particular research interest in sexual dysfunction, infertility and menstruation holding a PhD in this area.
With experience of working as a clinical manager and intake assessor for two busy London counselling services, I offer supervisory support for managers working in care in the community settings. I also offer clinical supervision for individuals and groups, having completed my training in analytic supervision.
I offer brief therapy and open-ended therapy depending on what is most appropriate for the client at the point of referral. I start with an initial enquiry conversation which is free and then if suitable, a consultation meeting of around an hour and fifteen minutes will start the process of regular sessions with an agreement to meet at the same time each week for 50 minutes either in person or on zoom.
