I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and supervisor practicing in Archway, Finsbury Park and London Bridge. I have been working with individuals and groups for the last twenty years. I would describe my orientation as psychoanalytic from within a contemplative perspective. By that I mean that I subscribe to the idea of an unconscious and believe that events and attitudes from early life can impact on our lives today. I understand that an awareness of these currents helps to increase the choices available to us. Yet I also know, as a long-time meditator, that paying attention in a non-judgemental fashion enables previously unbearable experiences to be borne and new possibilities discovered. I provide a safe space in which these experiences can be explored.
I was a member of the AGIP training committee for several years, including two years where I chaired the committee. I am currently the course leader for the Guild's diploma in psychoanalytic supervision. I am also the lead practitioner for the reduced fee service at Number 42 in London Bridge. I mostly work in-person but can also offer online sessions.
