I trained at the University of Oxford and have a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Practice. I am registered with the BACP, the UK's largest professional body for Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I have been working with clients for several years, both privately and at a central London agency.
I have more than ten years' experience as a manager and leader, consultant, coach, and social entrepreneur. My experience covers the public sector, social enterprise and charities, and management consultancy; both in the UK and internationally.
I have lived and worked in Eastern Europe, and speak some Russian.
I believe this diversity of experience gives me a wide perspective to draw on, and helps me to relate to a wide range of experiences, challenges, and individual backgrounds and contexts.
I have a particular interest in workplace difficulties, boarding school alumni, social anxiety, and adjusting to changes in life.
AREAS OF FOCUS
My approach is psychodynamic, which means that I work with you to make sense of what is going on, looking at embedded patterns of relating and being with others and yourself. It's an approach that works across a wide range of problems.
I am especially interested in helping men find their space in therapy; in how faith can help and hinder growth; and in the long-term effects of going to boarding school. I've also got experience of working with anxiety and social anxiety, depression or depressive feelings, stress and work problems, and family difficulties.
Get in touch to talk more about how therapy might be able to help with what's going on for you.
I work in private practice, which means there is a financial cost to working together. See the FAQ page for more details.
