About me

I am a fully qualified, accredited psychotherapist and counsellor who holds MA in Psychology and Psychoanalysis. I also completed three years training and qualified with a diploma in psychodynamic psychotherapy and counselling. Over the last twenty years, I have worked in a variety of education institutions in London as well as in my private office at in Notting Hill.

My expertise includes dealing with psychological difficulties which relate to personality disorders, including BPD (EUPD), anxieties, depression, trauma, and other conditions such as ADHD and OCD. I use psychodynamic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy combined with Mentalisation -based techniques to help clients to learn how to regulate high emotional vulnerabilities such as fear of rejection, social anxieties, extreme emotional swings, impulsivity, chronic feelings of emptiness, rage and depression.I use EMDR to treat PTSD and trauma.

It is important that we work together on identifying and setting therapy goals. By taking a collaborative approach, I can help you to build trust and ensure that you feel empowered and invested in wanting to get better.  In time, it is possible to modify your emotional responses and increase your confidence in dealing with distressing situations, resilience and build a life experienced as worth living and happy. 

In addition to an experience, competence, and common sense, I use humour, warmth, and empathy to create a sense of ease and comfort in sessions and to increase the client's appreciation for beauty, creativity and curiosity. I always follow the principles of confidentiality and congruence, valuing individual difference, and finding one's own path.

I am an accredited member of BACP, and I strictly follow its ethical framework. Online sessions available.
