About

Life might feel quite unbearable right now. Work and family life may have spiralled out of control. You might be struggling to bond with your new baby, or your young child or teenager is in emotional pain. You may have lost a loved one due to a relationship breaking down or a bereavement. Perhaps your hopes and dreams have been shattered and you are wondering if there is a way out of this dark place. All of the above life events can cause us to feel many confusing emotions such as anxiety, depression or anger. You being here right now is an important step towards changing your situation for the better.
As a doctor of psychoanalytic psychotherapy, I work with a wide range of life issues, with clients at every stage of life, from pregnancy to adulthood: babies, children & adolescents, adults, couples, families and elderly clients. I also offer parent-infant psychotherapy, which supports parents when there are difficulties in relating to their new baby.
One in four adults and children suffer from mental health issues. Whatever your background, there is no shame in seeking help. I offer counselling and psychotherapy that is always confidential, personal and non-judgemental.
