I am currently offering sessions in the consulting room or remotely (via Skype or Zoom) according to your personal circumstances.
Des séances en distanciel et en présentiel sont proposées en fonction de vos circonstances personnelles.
Weekly individual psychotherapy for adults and young adults (16+)
In a stable and confidential setting away from the distractions of everyday life.
The first session
After you initiate contact with me, we will arrange to meet up for an initial consultation so you can tell me about yourself. This may be followed by a subsequent session to allow us to decide if we are going to work together.
About psychoanalytic therapy
Psychoanalytic therapy alleviates psychic pain and improves the lives of many people with long-lasting effect.
Are you feeling sad, isolated, lonely, anxious, vulnerable or
experiencing (recurrent) unfulfilling relationships? Do you find it difficult to love and be loved ? Are you not making the most of your abilities ?
'Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise'
There are times in our lives when deeply-felt thoughts and emotions can be overwhelming.
The greatest part of our daily actions and emotional life is the result of hidden motives that escape our observation. Past experiences largely shape who we are and continue to affect our adult world.
I can assist you in connecting with yourself better and understand what is happening at a deeper level. These insights will allow you to have a richer, freer and more creative life.
I am a psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapist and a supervisor. I have ten years of clinical experience of working with adults, including young adults, in a variety of institutional settings including the NHS. I am bilingual in English and French and offer therapy and supervision in both languages. My practice encompasses helping with a range of psychological difficulties, from the demands and constraints of daily life to deep, complex emotional issues, often experienced in the shadow of family crisis. I have a particular interest in working with loss, mood disorders, family conflict, maternal neglect, privilege and abandonment, trauma, identity and expatriate issues. If my training and interests are rooted in the British school of object-relations, my orientation is inspired by classical & contemporary psychoanalytic thinking, particularly psychoanalysis. My practice is informed by a systemic perspective. My recent articles have been published in the British Journal of Psychotherapy (BJP).
I am a registrant of the BPC, FPC, APP in the NHS. I am accredited by the BACP (MBACP Accred).
I hold an MA from the 'Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust' & a post-qualification certificate in Supervision. I fulfil the (BPC) eligibility requirements for training therapists.
