Having worked as a writer for TV and advertising for many years, I trained as a psychodynamic individual and couple counsellor and psychotherapist at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships (TCCR). I currently see couples and individuals at TCCR and in private practice here at Mortimer Street, W1.
I specialise in open-ended therapy that allows clients to reflect on past experiences to make sense of the present. Sessions also focus on seeking to understand unconscious thoughts and feelings and bringing these into consciousness.
The relationship between my clients and me is vital in bringing about change, however big or small. Often by talking through difficulties with a non-judgmental other, who is able to think when thinking can often feel impossible, can bring relief and a feeling of being understood, perhaps for the very first time.
I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Psychotherapy and Counselling) and I abide by the BACP code of ethics.
