Personal Information

I have been in private practice in London since 2010 and have many years' experience in both short- and long-term work (see below). I am trained to work once weekly as well as to provide in-depth psychological work (2, 3+ times weekly). My personal interests lie in emotional growth, in identity (race and gender included) and cultural differences. I am foremost interested in helping people find their way out of the kind of loneliness described by Jung:

“Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.” C.G. Jung

Strength grows from the discovery of one's hereto undiscovered weaknesses and potentials. Understanding your inner world helps greatly in mastering your connections with people around you. It frees you up to take decisions that are more in line with who you are.

I can help with, and am interested in, the following. The list is not exhaustive:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Family issues, including child development and early relational traumas
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Work related problems
  • Lack of self-confidence
  • Stress
  • Mid-life crisis
  • Sexual and gender identity
  • Difficult eating patterns

Work Experience

I started on the path of the ‘talking cure’ in 2002 when I worked as a generic counsellor with adults in voluntary agencies as well as in a reputable psychotherapy centre in Edinburgh from 2005 to 2010. In the latter I provided open-ended therapy as well as short-term and solution-focussed work to private clients and individuals via EAPs (Employment Assistance Programmes). Some clients hoped to learn more about themselves, others presented with particular difficulties which challenged them to various degrees in their everyday life (e.g. unresolved grief, low mood, relationship problems, sexuality, gender identity, feelings of anger or worthlessness, managing difficult work situations, problems with eating patterns, and more). I also started supervising counsellors since 2008. As a personal tutor I have offered academic and emotional support to students of counselling. I have acquired in-depth experience into emotional development through the work with children (5+), adolescents and young adults, first as a support worker until 2003 (psychiatric inpatient units and in residential foster care), then as a youth counsellor in voluntary agencies, schools and colleges as well as for an NHS Trust organisation. Included in that work was consultation to professionals and parents as well as group facilitation. Latterly, in preparation for the analytic training, infant observation as well as psychoanalytic psychotherapeutic work in the NHS added a wealth of eye-opening experiences which have and continue to enrich my therapeutic practice.
