How I work

I am a professionally trained, qualified and BPC-registered psychodynamic psychotherapist. For a brief explanation of what psychodynamic or psychoanalytic psychotherapy is, see the BPC’s overview here.

I charge between £50 and £80 (depending on the client’s income) per 50-minute session of individual therapy at my consulting rooms at Aashna Counselling & Psychotherapy in North Finchley. I have a waiting-list for a limited number of low-fee spaces, for clients who are struggling to make ends meet. The most typical treatment I offer is open-ended, once-weekly psychotherapy.

For our first meeting, during which we decide together if and how we might proceed, I charge a fee of £65, and I allow up to ninety minutes for the consultation.

I work in English or French.

Some of the issues in which I have expertise include:

  • Addiction (including sex/desire-related addictions, work-related addictions and co-dependencies)
  • Attachment and intimacy problems
  • Anxiety, panic and feelings of emptiness
  • Childhood neglect and abuse
  • Class and cultural displacement
  • Depression and dissociation
  • Family dysfunction and estrangement
  • Loneliness, isolation and emotional anorexia
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Racism and racialised injury
  • Rage and self-sabotage
  • Sex, sexuality and the navigation of sexual identity
  • Shame and low self-esteem
  • Trauma (including complex trauma, developmental trauma and inter-generational trauma).
