Psychodynamic Psychotherapist

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist, with many years of experience working both in the NHS and in private practice. I studied for a PhD in Psychology at King's College London, and for a MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling at Greenwich University. I trained in Psychoanalytic Studies at the Tavistock Clinic and took courses in Assessment and Supervision Skills with the British Association of Psychotherapists.

In my role as Consultant Psychotherapist and head of the Counselling and Psychotherapy Department at King's College Hospital, I was leading a team of psychotherapists offering psychodynamic psychotherapy for inpatients, outpatients and their relatives, and helping those who were battling with medical illness or injury, and at times facing death. As modern life often revolves around being able bodied, healthy, mobile, medical illness and physical injury, whether chronic or acute, curable or terminal, can have profound social and psychological impact. This continues to be my interest and my area of speciality.

In private practice I welcome anyone who feels that psychotherapy may be of help, whether you are looking to have just a few sessions to think about a specific issue or situation, or would like to consider longer-term therapy. Psychotherapy can help make sense of what you are going through, face some difficult feelings and thoughts, feel less overwhelmed by your worries and fears, and make some choices and decisions. You may just need and want a few sessions to think about what is going on with you, or a longer time to be in therapy and explore present and past experiences.
