About me and my therapy practice

I have worked to help couples and individuals with issues in their relationships that are troubling them for 20 years. I am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council. I am a member of Faculty Staff at Tavistock Relationships, teach, lecture and publish widely about therapeutic work with couples.  I am originally psychoanalytically trained but compliment my practice from a whole range of additional ways of working, such as systemic family practice and behavioural techniques, gained from teaching and supervising across the NHS and other settings.  Working with couples where one or both is struggling with depression is something I teach widely in the NHS.  Working to recover from a relationship crisis, such as a death in the family, loss of a job or an affair are difficulties that I have experience of working with.  Helping couples and individuals through important life changes such as becoming parents, raising adolescents or facing retirement are also issues that  couples come to me for help with.  I also have an interest in working with couples where one of their children has learning difficulties.

Practice description

I work from a consulting room in my garden in East Sheen and offer therapy that is created to fit the needs of each particular couple or individual.  The work is usually weekly and there is no set length; this is something that is thought about as part of the therapy.

Due to the current pandemic, I have moved my practice to remote work with zoom and set this up for clients, giving them easy instructions to download zoom for free and sending them a link in order to attend sessions each week.

The sessions are either 50 minutes or 60 minutes long.
