About me and my therapy practice

Return to Face-to-face, September 1st 2021

Following the reopening of the Guild of Psychotherapists building, I am once again able to offer face to face meetings at 47 Nelson Square. I am continuing to offer therapy via the telephone, or via Zoom/Skype for those would prefer it.

Looking for a little help?

I offer a confidential and non-judgemental space to explore what ails you. I am a psychoanalytic therapist, which means using language to understand our beliefs about ourselves and our place in the world, and how these can limit us. But where the classic notion of the analyst is one who is mostly silent, I prefer something more like a conversation. I tend toward being direct and saying what I think is happening rather than maintaining a mysterious silence.

In my view the key requirement for those seeking therapy is curiosity about the self. If I had to choose a speciality it would be the following:

● Depression

● Anxiety

● Lacking a sense of direction

● Personal relations leave a bitter taste in the mouth

● Struggle to know what will make you happy

● Self-critical

Why wait to get help?

Call or email me for a confidential discussion and to arrange a consultation. I am registered with AXA PPP Healthcare, Aviva, Vitality Health, and Aetna insurance companies.

About Me

I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, a Full Clinical Member of the UKCP, and a registered member of the BACP. I completed a four-year training at the Guild of Psychotherapists to gain UKCP accreditation.

I was a counsellor, and later a supervisor, at ChildLine for three years. I spent two years as an associate therapist in an eating disorders clinic in Central London, offering treatment to those with a difficult relationship with food. I have worked in private practice since 2013.

Practice description

I offer a five minute telephone call free of charge - useful for determining if you wish to proceed to a consultation.

My fee for individuals is £70 to £90 per session, depending on circumstances; £100 for couples.

I also reserve a limited number of spaces during the day for people on low incomes. In these cases we can negotiate fees based on your circumstances.

I am registered with AXA PPP Healthcare, Aviva, Vitality Health, and Aetna insurance companies.

My first session

The first therapy session is a consultation. This is an exploratory session where we can begin to get to grips with what troubles you. It will give you a chance to see how therapy feels. I will get a chance to assess whether I believe that psychotherapy is recommended for you. We will then discuss this and decide together how to proceed.
