About

I firmly believe that we are fundamentally relational beings, ones that need security, understanding & care above all else. Real change comes not from trying to fix thinking patterns, self-concepts or the past, but in shifting relational dynamics in the here and now and finding new ways of being with another. This is what I focus on in therapy with my clients, and I draw on my background and experience in modern relational psychoanalysis, developmental theory, and in depth study of phenomenology & existential philosophy to look at what emerges and how that can inform meaningful change in your life.
I have 6 years of experience as a psychotherapist, and I supervise and teach on a masters level psychotherapy course in London. Through this, I've learned that deep, sustained change is not only possible, it can and will happen in the right therapy.
By focusing on the roots from the get-go, I will give it the best chance, whatever the starting point. There is no time like the present, as they say, so please reach out and call or email and I will get back to you promptly.
