I hold a PhD in Psychosocial Studies from Birkbeck, University of London, as well as an undergraduate degree in Psychoanalytic Psychology (Distinction) and a Masters in Psychosocial Studies (Distinction) from Birkbeck, University of London.
My experience ranges from working in several community-based mental health services, including working with children, the LGBTQI+ community, refugees and those seeking asylum to working with Latin American women and migrants. Alongside my private practice, I am part of the Psychosis Therapy Project (PTP) where I work with people experiencing the complexities of psychoses diagnoses and symptoms at various stages of their lives.
My academic research crosses the fields of medical humanities, continental philosophy, feminist thought and psychoanalytic theory in and outside of the clinic. I have been lecturing in the arts, humanities and psychosocial field since 2013. Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Researcher within the FREEPSY – Free Clinics and a Psychoanalysis for the People– project at the University of Essex.
These research interests are reflected in my practice, which follows a psychosocial and feminist orientation in which the layers and reverberations of class, gender, sexuality and race are integral to the work. I started my clinical training at the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research, in London, and I am currently a trainee at The Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis, also in London, UK. I am a registered and insured UKCP trainee and abide by their Code of Ethics.
