Life and relationships can feel difficult or confusing for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes it can be very hard to make sense of your experiences or symptoms like depression and anxiety without professional help. Psychotherapy can help to develop an understanding of why things are the way they are, with the aim of helping you to find new ways of coping from the inside and to be able to get on with your life and relationships more freely.
I work with people from all walks of life with a wide range of difficulties and aspirations. I currently see patients privately and in the NHS. I have worked in NHS mental health services since 1991. I am a senior psychodynamic psychotherapist and clinical supervisor within Psychological Services Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. I provide treatment for persistent depression and anxiety, complex needs, interpersonal difficulties, and for those seeking help following emotional and sexual abuse. I have also worked as a psychotherapist in Berkshire NHS personality disorders service from 2005 - 2010, honorary psychotherapist at the NHS Isis Centre in Oxford 2011- 2013 and at the Tavistock Centre in London from 2007 - 2015.
