About us

My area of speciality is general practice - working on a broad range of mild-to-moderate problems. The first half of my career, was spent practicing in GP surgeries across South West London, and the latter half in private practice in New York and London. 

I was trained in humanistic, cognitive-behavioural, and psychodynamic methods, and later specialised in the Cognitive Therapies - for short-term, and life-long problems. My practice draws from a range of useful, proven, ideas and methods (e.g. Schema-Focused-Therapy, stoicism, existential psychology), and I keep up to date with research. Taken together, these approaches emphasise that: we should seek to change only that which is in our power to do so, and adapt to all else; that it is generally the view we take of things that defeats us rather than the things in themselves; and that the good life comes from engaging with whatever brings a true sense of purpose. Therapeutic work is largely about understanding and undoing negative patterns or blind spots that prevent us from realising all of this.

Over the years, I have developed a nuanced sense of psychological therapies – which approaches work best for particular people and problems – and a healthy respect for the limits of psychological explanations and interventions. I have a strong record of people finding me easy to talk to, and my approach to be clear, practical and effective.
