About

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist with consulting rooms in Harley Street and West Hampstead and I also see patients in the NHS. My comprehensive experience supplements 6 years training at The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, the internationally renowned centre of excellence. I have an MA in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and an Advanced Diploma in the Dynamics of Mental Health Practice. I am a registered member of BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) and BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and currently furthering my professional development at the Institute of Psychoanalysis. I work with adults and late adolescents in both the English and Spanish languages.

The process

We start with an initial consultation, which can be 50 or 90 minutes long. Some clients are comfortable with a shorter session and other prefer to have more time for this initial exploration. If a shorter session is chosen, most likely I will suggest that we meet for a second time before deciding together if to embark in regular sessions.

Therapy then consists of one weekly session of 50 minutes (with the option of increasing to two sessions per week if necessary).
