About me and my therapy practice

I'm an experienced couples and individual psychodynamic psychotherapist, with additional qualifications in systemic approaches to working with individuals, families and organisations. I trained at Tavistock and Portman Clinic and at Tavistock Relationships in London, a world-renowned institution and specialist in relationship therapy.

With a psychodynamic grounding, I believe strongly in the importance of the therapeutic alliance – the trust between a client and therapist that is required to make progress and facilitate change. My approach is thus empathic and gentle and I offer clients a safe and non-judgemental space to explore thoughts, feelings, worries or any other anxieties and concerns.

Practice description

My aim is to help couples to foster awareness and understanding of themselves and each other, and gain insight into the nature of their difficulties. Couples therapy provides an opportunity to think about the dynamics of the relationship and get better attuned to your own emotions, as well as your partner’s. 

for Individuals therapy can help create a greater awareness of the different aspects of what we feel and experience, eventually leading to to a better sense of being connected to ourselves. 

With stronger and deeper connections to ourselves as well as those around us, we can go out into the world feeling safer and more resilient, and able to make decisions more confidently.

My first session

You are welcome to contact me to arrange a free 20-minute initial conversation to help you decide if therapy is for you. Following this, we will have an initial consultation which will give you the opportunity to discuss in depth your reasons for seeking therapy and aims for the therapy, and to ask any questions that you might have about the therapy itself.

If your decision is to proceed with regular therapy sessions, we will arrange a mutually convenient time for weekly sessions.


Individual therapy: 50-minute sessions. £80 per session.

Couples therapy: 50-minute sessions. £100 per session.

Family business consultancy. 60-minute sessions. £120 per session.
