Hello, and welcome to my website. I am an experienced and registered psychoanalytic psychotherapist and clinical supervisor based in Farringdon, central London EC1, located between the City and the West End.
I offer psychotherapeutic treatment to adults seeking help with their emotional difficulties. Additionally, I provide clinical supervision to psychotherapists, counsellors and other mental health professionals who are engaged in clinical practice.
What sort of problems might therapy help me with?
People have commonly sought help from me when struggling with emotional problems such as:
- feeling stressed or anxious
- coming to terms with losses such as bereavement, separation, or redundancy
- lacking confidence, self-esteem or having feelings of underachievement
- an inability to make or sustain good relationships
- repeatedly becoming involved in unsatisfactory or destructive relationships
- feeling depressed, sad or empty
- lacking a sense of purpose in life
- having unresolved issues from the past
- difficulties relating to sexuality
- coming to terms with, or addressing ones identity, as gay, lesbian or bisexual
- problems at work
- family conflicts
I provide a safe, calm and confidential environment, where you can identify, explore and work through the things that are troubling you. Through the relationship between us, I aim to help you discover and develop new ways of approaching life; ways which are less compromised by past patterns that contribute to your distress and suffering in the present.
I see patients in psychotherapy between one and four times a week. Whatever the frequency of treatment, making a commitment to the therapeutic process in terms of time, and in openness to work on entrenched difficulties, is extremely important if such conflicts are to change.

What to do next?
It is not unusual to feel uncertain or anxious about beginning therapy. An experienced practitioner understands this, and will help with the process of getting treatment underway.
If you would like to explore things further, please feel free to contact me by telephone or email to discuss your situation, or to set up an preliminary consultation. All communications between us will be treated in complete confidence, and I attempt to respond to all enquiries promptly.
