About me

I have extensive experience of working as a Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist in a variety of settings:

As an undergraduate trainee psychologist I worked for three years in a psychiatric unit, offering psychological support to patients in the de-institutionalisation programme. I also held an honorary placement in an acute psychiatric ward, offering counselling sessions to adult patients.

During my doctorate training, I worked for three years in specialist addictions services and community mental health teams, in the NHS, offering longer-term integrative psychological therapies to adult patients. I also held a four year clinical placement with Croydon Counselling Foundation, offering long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy sessions to adults, and clinical assessments with clients considering psychodynamic therapy.

After completing my doctorate training, I started my private practice in London, offering individual psychotherapy and group-therapy sessions.

In addition to my private practice, I am the Clinical Manager of WLM Highbury Counselling Centre (HCC), operating a low-cost, affordable clinic for longer-term counselling and psychotherapy. I am also serving as the Placement and Training Coordinator at Croydon Counselling Foundation (CCF), and I have been working as a visiting lecturer in Counselling Psychology Doctorate programs in London. I also volunteer at Bubble and Speak, a drop-in group for children under 4 years old and their parents/carers.

Alongside my formal professional training and time with patients, the most significant part of my formation has been my own personal psychoanalytic therapy, and consistent engagement with process groups.
