About me and my therapy practice

Deciding to take up therapy can feel like a daunting and uncertain step. If something just doesn't seem right in you, I offer a safe and non-judgmental environment where you can explore whether therapy is something you think might be helpful for you at this time in your life.

I am a registered psychotherapist (MA, MBACP) and work in private practice in Raynes Park (West Wimbledon), and at The Awareness Centre in Tooting.

I'm a psychotherapist in the NHS, working in the Trauma Unit at the Tavistock Clinic, and have a special interest in trauma related issues, anxiety and relationship issues.

I offer a confidential space to think together about what might be troubling you. My focus in on your emotional wellbeing. Whether your problems are rooted in the past or something more recent, I believe long lasting change is possible by exploring the underlying meaning of your thoughts and feelings, behaviour, and relationships with others.

A psychodynamic approach assists in working through dynamics that might be keeping you in a way of being that is inhibiting or painful, so that you can come alive and reach your potential in life.

I am also a senior yoga teacher (YAP accredited, 2002) and have extensive experience of working with mindfulness, somatic symptoms, and the link between the mind and body.

Simply email or call me to discuss further, or to arrange an initial consultation. Assessment consultations usually take place over two sessions. During this time we can think together about whether psychodynamic therapy is something that is suitable for you, while you can ask questions, experience how I work, and decide whether you feel comfortable working with me.
