What I do
I provide a psychological consultation and treatment service, specialising in psychoanalysis.
In brief, psychoanalytic approaches are longer term, exploratory psychotherapies that have a focus on the unconscious causes of distress and mental health difficulties.

Who can I help?
Subject to consultation, I may be able to help with problems related to depression, anxiety, relationships, sex and sexuality, trauma, abuse, identity, transitions, bereavement, stress or medically unexplained symptoms. However, psychoanalytic therapy is not a symptom-focused approach and I would recommend other kinds of therapies if that seemed more suitable.
