About me

I am fully qualified BACP accredited psychotherapist who holds MA in psychology and psychoanalysis. I also completed three years of training and qualified with a diploma in psychodynamic psychotherapy and counselling. Over the last twenty years, I have worked in various educational instituations in London as well as in my prrivate practice at w11psychotherapy in Notting Hill.

My theoretical orientation is psychodynamic; using the relationship between myself and the client, looking at the dynamics between us and exploring whether they are informed by early attachments and associations, and examining how that may help us to change the unhelpful thinking and misconceptions. I also follow the principles of positive psychology: with the aim to increase the self-esteem, appreciation for beauty, creativity and humour. In time, it is possible to modify clients' unhelpful emotional responses, decrease anxiety and increase their resilience and optimism .
There are three key factors that highly contribute to producing successful therapeutic outcomes: 1) my professional skills and experience, 2) empathy, warmth and humour - they all increase client's ability to feel validated and understood, 3) client's own motivation and ability to form emotional intimacy with me, based on trust and honesty. I always follow the principles of confidentiality and congruence; valuing individual difference, and finding one's own path.

Areas of interest

My expertise includes dealing with psychological difficulties which relate to relational difficulties, trauma, anxieties, depression, addictions, PTSD, ADD/ADHD,OCD and BPD/EUPD. I often combine psychodynamic ,Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Mentalisation Behavioural Therapy to help to manage and regulate high emotional vulnerabilities such as fear of rejection,extreme emotional swings, impulsivity ,chronic feelings of emptiness and rage.
