Availability

Due to the current situation with Covid 19, I am offering online sessions only. I have availability from Monday to Friday up to 7pm.

About me and my therapy practice

My style of therapy combines the respectful and warm approaches of Person Centred therapy and the depth of Psychodynamic psychotherapy. It helps you to look at questions such as:

What are the implications of how I choose to live my life?

What are the patterns that are repeated and why?

What is in my personal history that has contributed to these patterns?

As a therapist I will help you to make these connections between the past and the present. I will often comment on what happens in the sessions as we talk together. This can help to show how some of the things that you feel, do and say are not driven by your conscious thoughts and feelings, but by unconscious feelings from your past. And if it is happening in the therapy sessions, it will also be happening in your day-to-day life. When you understand these connections better, you can make decisions based on what you want or need now, not what your past experiences drive you to do.

Practice description

The sessions last for 50 minutes and are held on the weekly basis or up to 3 sessions a week. Therapy over months rather than weeks often enables you to gain deeper understanding about yourself and a greater ability to make meaningful changes in your life. I work remotely using Zoom and also offer face to face sessions.

Therapy can be challenging and painful, but it can also be emancipating and very valuable. It will ultimately respect your choice in the path you choose to live your life.

My first session

The first session will be for 30 minutes and it is an opportunity for us to meet and see if we would like to continue working together. It is also a space  for you to ask any question you might have.

We will also discuss the counselling contract and find a time which is suitable for us both.
