About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced psychotherapist working online and face-to-face in central London, helping clients deal with issues such as anxiety, depression, seasonal affective disorder, feeling sad or stuck, loneliness, stress, panic attacks, low self-esteem or low self-confidence, or family, identity or relationship issues, including loss, separation or divorce.

Practice description

My role as a therapist is to help people to explore their problems and work through them in a supportive way. The aim is always to help a client to gain new understanding and help them move forwards.

This usually involves exploring a client's immediate circumstances and feelings, and thinking about past events and how these might affect the present. Sometimes, it can be helpful to explore dreams and more loosely associated memories.

In this way, I have helped people address issues like anxiety, depression, seasonal affective disorder, feeling sad or stuck, loneliness, stress, panic attacks, low self-esteem or low self-confidence, or family, identity or relationship issues, including loss, separation or divorce.

While my training is psychodynamic, I integrate ideas from existential, relational and neuropsychoanalytic therapeutic approaches into my work. If you would like to know more about what this means in practice, please ask me when we meet.

My first session

In the first instance, I offer a free 30-minute consultation by phone to explore your situation, get a feel for what it will be like to work together and to answer any questions you have. This is always a very open conversation with no expectation or obligation to work together.

The next step is to meet face-to-face or online for one or two assessment sessions, to think further about what you want to get from therapy and to help you decide if I am the right therapist for you. In particular, I work with clients addressing issues like anxiety, depression, seasonal affective disorder, feeling sad or stuck, loneliness, stress, panic attacks, low self-esteem or low self-confidence, or family, identity or relationship issues, including loss, separation or divorce.

If we then decide to work together, we will meet regularly online or in-person in London at my consulting room in Shoreditch or Clerkenwell. These are well placed for clients based in Dalston, Hackney, Bethnal Green, Hoxton, Old Street, Farringdon, Barbican, Liverpool Street, Moorgate, Angel and the City of London, as well as clients in east London or the wider London area.
