My approach

I am an experienced and fully qualified psychodynamic therapist, and work with clients on either a long or short-term basis. My approach is psychodynamic and relational.

My practice is informed by contemporary understanding of psychodynamic, attachment-based and relational theory as well as latest research from developmental psychology, neurobiology and neuroscience. I approach every person as a unique individual, with an open mind and in strict confidence. I believe our work is a joint undertaking which requires commitment from us both.

I offer a supportive, open and empathic space to help clients explore difficult emotional issues which may stem from their childhood or have been felt to be more recent in nature.

I hope to help those who come to me to develop the freedom and courage to be truly themselves.

Training and qualifications

I have completed one of the most rigorous trainings in psychodynamic psychotherapy in the UK: a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy at WPF in London, which is accredited by BACP, UKCP and BPC.

Past experience

I have 4 years’ therapeutic experience.

I also have my own personal experience of intensive psychotherapy and this informs my hope to offer a potentially healing and life-enhancing or life-changing experience.
