About me and my therapy practice
About therapy, you and my practice
As an experienced therapist, I can offer you a safe and confidential space for us to reflect and explore issues from a different perspective. This can help you to gain better understanding and insight why you might be feeling stuck or repeating difficult patterns.
My main approach is psychodynamic which means we will work to help you understand yourself more deeply. The way in which our minds work is shaped largely by our early experiences, although this operates generally outside our conscious awareness. Together we hope to increase your psychological insight, reinforce personal growth and enrich life.
Therapy is an opportunity to explore life transition, unhelpful patterns of relating to oneself, others and the world that may be underlying symptoms of depression and anxiety and think about helpful ways to manage when life becomes difficult.
I am fully qualified Therapist with over ten years of experience working at Primary Care in the NHS and in private psychotherapy practice. I offer brief, time-limited and long term individual psychotherapy. These are remote sessions via telephone or video link.

My first session
What to expect in your first session? It includes initial assessment of your difficulties, goals, and discussion of how I might help you. I provide 50 minutes to an hour for the first session to allow for time to address business matters including collecting contact information from you, discussion of fee and scheduling sessions. I charge a fee of £ 60.00 for the initial consultation session. I am mindful that you might meet with more than one psychotherapist for consultation. All subsequent sessions are charged at my standard rate for psychotherapy sessions (see above).
