About me and my therapy practice
Life and relationships can feel difficult for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes it can be very hard to make sense of your thoughts and feelings or symptoms like depression and anxiety without professional help.
Within the psychotherapeutic relationship I can help you to develop an understanding of your thoughts and feelings, with the aim of helping you to find new ways of coping.
I work with people from all walks of life with a wide range of difficulties and aspirations. I currently see patients privately and within the NHS Specialist Psychological Services in my role as principal psychodynamic psychotherapist.
I have worked in NHS mental health services since 1991. I'm a principal psychodynamic psychotherapist, group therapist, and clinical supervisor within psychological services Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. I also teach and supervise psychiatrists training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I provide assessment and treatment for persistent depression and anxiety, complex needs and for those seeking help with making sense of their lives. I have also worked as a psychotherapist in Berkshire NHS personality disorders service from 2005 - 2010, honorary psychotherapist at the NHS Isis Centre in Oxford 2011- 2013 and at the Tavistock Centre in London from 2007 - 2015.
