I hold a Masters (MSc) in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy from Birkbeck, University of London. I currently work as a counsellor and assessor in a community counselling service in South London and as an adult psychotherapist in an outpatients service at the South London & Maudsley NHS Trust.


I have experience of working with clients in acute emotional distress who have faced early traumatic experiences and / or lifelong difficulties in education, work and relationships. I also have experience of working with clients who are feeling confused, helpless, unmotivated and / or very unhappy with themselves and where they are in life.


Prior to training as a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist, I held marketing roles in global financial services and publishing companies. I also hold a degree in Modern European Languages from Durham University.


I am registered with, and adhere to the ethical code of, the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
