Biography

I’ve been working as a psychotherapist for about 15 years, specializing in working with people who suffer from anxiety, depression and or trauma. Much of my career has been spent abroad, working in the U.S., Argentina, and Cambodia. In the U.S. I worked as a social worker with people people suffering from schizophrenia; I then moved to Buenos Aires where I had a private practice for about two years; After this I moved to Cambodia, where I stayed for about 10 years. There I opened a therapy clinic in Phnom Penh for both local Khmer and exapts, which I’m still a consultant with.

In addition to my psychotherapy work in Cambodia, I created and ran projects for victims of trafficking. This involved therapy work, as well the training and supervision of other counsellors and social workers involved. I also did trauma response to local natural and man made disasters.

I returned to London about 4 years ago, where I work in private practice.

 

How I work with clients

My general philosophy is: given space people heal. It never ceases to amaze me how people naturally retain an awareness of themselves, despite whatever stresses they are under. To do this, I try to understand your situation, to either find ways of coping or new ways of living. This process can at times be difficult, and therefore it is always done with a serious attention given to patience and acceptance.
