About me and my therapy practice

Deciding to see a therapist can be a daunting step. People seek therapy for a multitude of problems which can occur at any time of life. I work with young people and adults from diverse backgrounds who bring a wide range of emotional and psychological issues.

It is important that you are in safe hands; I am a BACP accredited therapist with many years experience working in both the public and private sectors. I can offer either focused, short-term counselling or in-depth, medium to longer-term psychotherapy. I provide a safe, comfortable and confidential setting at my practice close to City Thameslink Rail and Farringdon/Chancery Lane tube stations.

My approach is to work with you to explore the root causes of your problems. The focus of the therapy is for you to develop a better understanding of your thoughts, feelings, past experiences and patterns of relating and behaving that can become repeated in the present in unhelpful ways. This greater personal insight can lead to a capacity for you to be better able to manage your feelings and behaviours in the present, allowing the opportunity for change and emotionally healthier ways of being and relating.

I have a specialism in short term work and am a Guest Lecturer at Birkbeck, University of London delivering workshops on short-term psychotherapy for trainee therapists. With additional training in organisational processes and dynamics, I have a particular interest in mental health issues in the work-place and promoting access to support without stigma. Prior to working as a psychotherapist I had 20 years experience working in senior communications roles across multinationals to small organisations.

There is no need to struggle on alone and in silence, help is at hand. You can telephone or email me to discuss your circumstances, with a view to setting up a consultation where we can explore your difficulties and decide the next best steps. https://citylondonpsychotherapy.wordpress.com

About me and my therapy practice

I am an accredited member of the BCAP and hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy from Birkbeck, University of London. I provide psychodynamic supervision for medium to longer term work and have an additional specialism in the higher education sector working with both young people and adults in a short-term modality.

Alongside my private practice in the City, I run workshops on 'short-term psychodynamic work' for MSc students at Birkbeck, University of London. I have professional development training in supervision skills from the British Psychotherapy Foundation and prior to being a therapist, had a long career in communications management and supervisory roles across the corporate and not-for-profit sector. A unique aspect of the MSc course I undertook was the training in individual, group and organisational processes and dynamics which also informs my therapeutic approach.

I believe the role of a supervisor is to provide a safe, reflective and non-judgemental space for you to explore your practice. I bring to the supervision role many years of clinical experience; I work with a wide range of clients from diverse backgrounds and cultures who present with differing emotional issues from chronic mental health problems where risk can be an issue, to more everyday anxiety and low level depression. I encourage a curiosity in supervision with the exploration of the unconscious and the transference and countertransference processes, and promote best practice where professional standards are maintained and the client is always at the heart of the work.

I offer two locations for supervision: NW6 (close to Thameslink/London Overground/Jubilee line) and EC1A (Friday only, close to City Thameslink/ Farringdon and Chancery Lane tubes). To discuss your supervision needs please do contact me by phone or email with a view to setting up an initial meeting. I offer concessionary rates for Associates/Trainees.
