About me and my therapy practice

We all live in the conversation between our internal experience and the challenges of the outer world.

At times we face difficulties: trauma, bereavement addictive behaviours, abuse, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, or other challenges. When thoughts and feelings become overwhelming or intrusive, therapy can give time and space to process and reflect. In some cases, it gives an opportunity to practice new ways of being in relationships.

​At other times, people seek therapy from a position of curiosity, with no particular reason in mind.

Everyone is welcome.

My intention is to offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore your internal world and find a way to make the most of your life, in a way that feels true for you.

I aim to be actively welcoming and inclusive. My approach is one that makes room for you, whatever your race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, spiritual beliefs, culture, political position or physical condition. Please feel welcome to be yourself and let me know if you need any specific support to enable your full involvement in therapy.


For over 20 years, I have worked in a range of roles alongside people from many different backgrounds, to help them improve their lives. I have studied psychology, education, coaching, leadership and management, and trained as a psychodynamic therapist.

I have a Postgraduate diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also have completed training in trauma informed practice, suicide prevention, working with survivors of childhood abuse and those living with complex trauma.

I have experience of working with people with the gift of neurodiversity.

Practice description

Psychodynamic therapy is centred around two ideas.

The first is that we have an unconscious. This means we can act in ways that we do not understand and feel things that we can not always explain. We can find ourselves unhappy, depressed, angry, distressed and unable to understand the reason. Alternatively, it may be that you repeatedly find yourself in difficult relationships and you are not sure why. Therapy can be about finding ways to make the unconscious, conscious so that you can understand yourself better and, if desired, change your responses and behaviours.

The second is that what happens to us in early childhood impacts on us as adults. We may spend some time looking at your childhood, and how it affected you in both positive and negative ways. This understanding can deepen your sense of self knowledge and give you a new appreciation of your life's path.

Primarily, though, our therapy sessions would be about whatever you wish to explore, think about or question. I aim to be open and explorative, allowing plenty of time and space to learn about yourself without judgement. Whilst therapy can be serious and difficult, there is often a surprising amount of playfulness and humour that is possible in a safe, reflective space.

My first session

The first session is a chance for you to see if working with me would be the right decision for you. It allows us to look at the reasons you have come for therapy and why you are choosing this point, discuss what your aims might be and how we can work together. This session is the usual length of 50 minutes and will be the usual cost.

If you would prefer a 25 minute meeting on Zoom to have a more general discussion, this can be arranged for half the fee of a full session.
