What I do

 

I practice as a Registered Psychodynamic Psychotherapist or Counsellor, offering once weekly sessions. I work entirely within the Psychodynamic model, but also offer a supportive and non punitive therapeutic space. 

 

I teach Psychodynamic Skills and Theory at Diploma/Degree level which I have delivered in person and online. Theory modules taught include Psychodynamic Concepts, Time Limited Therapy and Attachment Theory. I am a staff counsellor for a non-profit counselling centre in North London, a volunteer for Frontline 19 working with NHS staff and have my own private practice. 

I have worked within the helping professions for 12 years, including frontline roles within two major charities and have worked with a broad range of clients. I am required as a BACP registered therapist to continuously update my learning, competence and skills.
