About Me

I’m an experienced couples and individual psychodynamic psychotherapist, with additional qualifications in systemic approaches to working with individuals, families and organisations. I trained at Tavistock and Portman Clinic and at Tavistock Relationships in London, a world-renowned institution and specialist in relationship therapy.

With a psychodynamic grounding, I believe strongly in the importance of the therapeutic alliance – the trust between a client and therapist that is required to make progress and facilitate change. My approach is thus empathic and gentle. I offer clients a safe and non-judgemental space to explore thoughts, feelings, worries or any other anxieties and concerns. Mutual trust allows openness and space for reflection, which in turn helps to facilitate growth – helping both individuals and couples find clarity and a positive way forward.

How I Work

Sessions can take place online, or face-to-face at Eaton Gate practice. You are welcome to contact me to arrange a free 20-minute initial conversation to help you decide if therapy is for you. Following this, we will have an initial consultation which will give you the opportunity to discuss in depth your reasons for seeking therapy and aims for the therapy, and to ask any questions that you might have about the therapy itself. If your decision is to proceed with regular therapy sessions, we will arrange a mutually convenient time for weekly sessions.
