I am a psychotherapist who specialises in mental health and work. Previously I was an M&A lawyer for more than 20 years. That involved acting personally on some of the most significant and complex M&A of the time and running departments in leading global law firms advising the largest companies in the world on their most important transactions. I have first-hand experience of extreme work environments and my focus in psychotherapy has been on how they affect the people who work in them and what people get out of them. My clients bring a range of different personal and professional issues but the common ground tends to be that they are people who are, or have been, working very hard.
I have a degree in Psychology and Philosophy from the University of Leicester and an MSc in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from the University of London. I completed my clinical training at St Barts and The Homerton Hospitals and qualified as a psychotherapist in 2013.
My private practice is based in the City of London but, since clients are often outside the UK and many prefer to use time working from home for consultations, I work extensively online.
Outside private practice I am involved in a number of projects around mental health and the workplace, I write regularly in the media about mental health and mental healthcare and I am the author of Other People – Something You Should Know published by the Levertov Press.
