About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor and I can help you make sense of and start to change what is troubling you.
I can help you address immediate problems and habits that are affecting you, with the aim of identifying their roots and influence over your relationships, both past and present. We can work together to unfold your personal story, to help you gain greater understanding and acceptance of your issues and difficulties. My aim is to support you as you develop these insights and begin to make changes.
I work psychodynamically which means becoming aware of how our past affects the present. This helps us better understand how our unconscious motivations may be impacting on how we relate to ourselves, and others around us. This creates the possibility for change and enables us to move towards a more comfortable way of being. Developing greater self awareness and insight allows us to make more informed choices and fulfil our potential.
My first session
I offer an initial assessment, which lasts 50 minutes. It is an opportunity for you to share what has brought you to counselling and to think about what you wish to gain from it. It is also an opportunity for me to gain the necessary information.
We can then get a sense of whether what I have to offer is likely to be helpful to you and, just as importantly, for you to get an idea of what counselling feels like and what you might gain from it. We will agree at this stage if we are proceeding on an open-ended basis, where there is not a set number of sessions, or for an agreed period of time.
The initial assessment fee is £60. Subsequent sessions are weekly (on the same day and time) and last 50 minutes and the fee is £55.
For brief psychodynamic counselling, where we agree a specific focus and a fixed number of sessions (usually between 6-12) the fees is £55 per session.
