I am a qualified, accredited and registered integrative psychotherapist & counsellor, mindfulness facilitator, and yoga teacher & trainer with over 10 years experience working with individuals, couples, and groups in various capacities.
My special interest lies in working with interpersonal difficulties in private and work relationships, cross-cultural issues, and trauma. The depth of my training allows me to work effectively with a variety of concerns such as anxiety and depression, abuse, dissociation, narcissism, self-harm, sexual problems and complex, enduring mental health issues.
My personal roots are in Freud’s Vienna and I have family in the UK, Austria, Italy and Germany.
A converted business professional dedicated to promoting emotional and mental health and wellbeing, I bring both a pragmatic and holistic perspective to my therapeutic work.
My thinking is based on an embodied mind and the integrative approach allows me to combine traditional therapeutic theories with evidence-based models and contemporary relational ideas that are grounded in findings from neurobiology. Among other I draw on psychoanalytic and psychodynamic thought, attachment- and regulation theories, sensorimotor and body-awareness approaches to trauma treatment, DIT (Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). In this way therapy is tailored to my clients’ needs, rather than them fitting into a method.
Most of my work is longer term, however, I also offer time-limited solution focussed Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) based on my work in the NHS.
I run a clinic in Wimpole Street (W1G), Wimbledon (SW19), and Online (Video & Phone).
