As an English-speaking psychotherapist practising in London and online, with over 20 years experience, I offer relational therapy for anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions and those struggling in relationships.
Originally from Australia, I have lived in London for many years. I am an experienced attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist. In addition to my private practice, I worked for 16 years in the UK National Health Service as a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. I am a consultant psychotherapist at the Clinic for Dissociative Studies as well as teaching on the clinical training programme at the Bowlby Centre. I am a supervisor approved by the UK Council for Psychotherapy.
My clinical practice, both online and in-person, includes working with depression, anxiety, relationship and family issues, eating disorders, bereavement, post-traumatic stress and dissociation.
I am a member of the European Association for Psychotherapy and holder of the European Certificate of Psychotherapy, the European-wide standard for psychotherapy training. I am a registered member of the Bowlby Centre, dedicated to attachment-based psychotherapy. I am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy under registration number 4156164.
I provide psychotherapy from an attachment-based approach within a relational psychodynamic model to help clients improve the quality of their relationships and their life. In essence, I believe the effectiveness of psychotherapy is based on two complementary elements. The first is the understanding and insight that emerges during therapy about repeating patterns in a client's relationships, both current and past. We all carry an internal working model of relationships and often find ourselves repeating patterns in our dealings with other people. The second key element of psychotherapy centres on the healing capacity of a positive and collaborative relationship between client and therapist. Together, these complementary strands of psychotherapy create the conditions in which meaningful change and personal development can take place.
