Training, qualifications & experience
I have been working as clinician since 2008. After years of experience in the
NHS, first at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, then at the South
London and the Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, I am now a psychotherapist in full-
time private practice.
I completed my psychotherapy training at the Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation
Trust, and was awarded a Masters in the Foundations of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
by the University of Essex.
I am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and a member of the
College of Psychoanalysts-UK.
I am interested in particular in the question of identity, art and personal
expression. Also, I have a particular interest in Lacanian analysis.
