About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist and am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and have been a registered member of the BACP since 2020.  I initially trained as a psychodynamic counsellor, but completed my psychotherapy training in London at the Westminster Pastoral Foundation.  

Whether this is your first experience of seeking therapy, or you are returning, I appreciate it can be hard to make that first step and difficult to know where to start. I can offer you a warm and empathic space where we can explore whatever is bothering you to help you to understand yourself and your relationships. As a psychotherapist, I am trained to work at a deeper level to help you to discover how your past experiences may have influenced your current difficulties.

Practice description

I work in private practice in Ashtead and Epsom where I provide weekly face-to-face or remote therapy sessions, on an open-ended or time-limited basis.

My first session

Whether you contact me via phone or email we would have a brief chat and then arrange an initial session which would last up to an hour. This would provide you with an opportunity to share what has brought you to therapy and enable me to ask a few questions to gain a better understanding of your background and current situation. Then, if you would like to proceed we would agree a convenient day and time for us to meet on a regular basis.
