Psychoanalysis & Psychotherapy

I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist working in Central London, close to Southwark, Waterloo and London Bridge stations. I also offer sessions on the phone and online.

I have completed my training at The Guild of Psychotherapists and am currently working towards full UKCP accreditation and Guild membership.



Psychoanalysis focuses on each person's singular experience, and will be very different for each of us. The priority is to create a space for you to speak about your thoughts and feelings without judgement. This process is not always easy but can lead to the alleviation of difficult symptoms, the relief of suffering and the facilitation of change. 

Clinical Experience

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including: depression, anxiety, addiction, psychosis, relationship and family issues, self harm, feelings of despair and loneliness, repetitive behaviours, low self-esteem, body issues and problems with regards to food.

Beyond my work in private practice I have worked as an honorary psychotherapist at the Guild low fee clinic offering affordable therapy to members of the local community. I am also a volunteer psychotherapist with the Psychosis Therapy Project.


I offer open-ended therapy and am happy to meet weekly or more frequently, depending on what is most suitable. The fee is variable and will depend on your individual circumstances. This is something we will agree together however will likely fall between £30 and £80 per session.

Sessions cancelled with less then 48 hours notice are due in full however I will always try to reschedule where possible.
