Home. imageresized

I am an experienced UKCP registered psychoanalytic psychotherapist and BACP registered counsellor in Southwark, South London, providing face to face long term, time limited and open ended therapy to adult individuals.

My consulting room is in Union Street Southwark, South London very near both Waterloo, Blackfriars and Southwark Tube Stations and easy to reach from Lambeth, Westminster and Central London. 



Counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, comfortable and private setting


I work with people from all walks of life and backgrounds who come to me for help with a wide range of issues and I regularly help people with anxiety, depression, phobia, compulsive behaviour, relationship difficulties, eating disorders, panic attacks, grief, loss and bereavement, trauma, problems with self esteem and confidence, sexuality and identity.

However, there may not be a particular reason for wanting to see a counsellor or psychotherapist. You may have been feeling overwhelmed by the challenges of life or that life's disappointments have left you feeling lost, empty and unfulfilled. It may reach a point where you know that something needs to change but you are at a loss as to know how to make this happen. Talking to someone who is not a family member or friend can free you to be more honest about thoughts and feelings. It can help you to change your life through the process of coming to understand yourself and the choices you've made. It can focus on unhelpful relationship patterns which may have persisted throughout your life. With more clarity, you can move forward and make much better choices for yourself based on what has real meaning for you.  In this way you can lead your life more fully.





As a fully qualified counsellor, I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and as a fully qualified psychoanalytic psychotherapist, I am a registered member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. I am also a member of the Guild of Psychotherapists My work is in accordance with their ethical frameworks. 

I have spent a number of years working in areas of personal interest which include both issues around sexual orientation and gender identity, and eating disorders. I opted to attend a training run by Gendered Intelligence to help me work more competently with Trans, Gender Diverse and Questioning People. i spent four years working in private eating disorders clinic in Central London. Currently, I am keen to better educate myself around race, racism and discrimination and have been attending seminars run by the race and culture committee at the Guild of Psychotherapists on "Decolonising Psychoanalysis."

"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate"

Carl S Jung

I work psychodynamically which means the therapeutic relationship between us is used to gain insight into unconscious (out of awareness) relationship patterns that have evolved since childhood. Memories and other evidence of early relationships are used to make sense of current concerns. 

My counselling and psychotherapy practice in Southwark is a 3-minute walk from Southwark Tube Station, a 7- minute walk from Blackfriars tube and mainline station and an 8-minute walk from Waterloo tube and mainline station. It can also be easily reached from Lambeth, Westminster and Central London. I give the address and directions when we have arranged an initial consultation.
