I work as a Psychotherapist in private practice in North London where I offer therapy for a wide range of issues to adults and young people (including their families when necessary).
My first training was in psychodynamic psychotherapy, but during these 30 years working as a therapist, I have gained knowledge and skills in other therapeutic models (see Training). As such, I am able and comfortable to use a range of therapeutic approaches. However, a substantial amount of my work these days is based on the use of EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) either as a stand alone intervention or integrated with other approaches.
Nonetheless, my clinical work is deeply informed by the psychodynamic model and by attachment theory. In other words, the effects of one's early life events and early family interactions and how those impact on one's emotional development and on their later functioning.
Psychological Interventions to Mental Health Professionals in the Face of Professional Negative Events
In recent years I have gained a substantial amount of experience in helping mental health professionals facing negative professional events. These include anxiety, depression or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder following suicide of patients, Coroners' inquests, GMC investigations, organizational bullying or being the recipient of unrealisitc expectations resulting in emotional suffering.
