About Me

I am a psychoanalyst working in the Lacanian orientation with adults.

You are welcome to contact me to speak confidentially about anything that you feel you need at this point in your life. It could be difficulties in your everyday life or with others. It could be thoughts, feelings or sensations that are too much, or a lack of desire or enjoyment in life. It could also be a question about yourself, which you wish to explore in a non-judgemental space.

Psychoanalysis is a space where you and I can both listen to you, and patiently help you invent new ways of being in the world, with others, and with yourself. In practice, I will take a position of learner who is taught by you. Sessions will have a variable duration that depends on what you say in each session, up to thirty minutes in general.

Experience and Qualifications

I am a member of the London Society of the New Lacanian School and am on the UKCP registered training of the Guild of Psychotherapists in London. As a UKCP trainee psychotherapist, I abide by the UCKP Code of Ethics and Professional Practice, and the UKCP Complaints and Conduct Process.

I hold an MSc in Engineering and an MA in Cultural Studies. In the past, I worked with small children at Bubble & Speak, and I worked with LGBTQ+ adults at METRO‘s mental health drop-in. I also attend clinical presentations at the psychiatric hospital of Ville-Evrard in France.


The session fee will be agreed during our first meetings and will be set depending on your circumstances. The terms under which I offer psychoanalysis can be found in my information sheet.


I work at Eaton Gate on Tuesday, Saturday, as well as early mornings.

I offer appointments in English and French, twice a week for open-ended psychoanalysis, and once a week for time-limited psychoanalytic treatment
