About me and my therapy practice

I believe that our capacity to cope with issues that arise in adult life, whether this is how we experience the world, relate to others, cope with difficult situations or understand and manage what can often be overwhelming emotions, is ultimately bound up with our early experiences. Whether we wish to or not we carry our history with us and sometimes this does not provide the strong foundation needed to engage and embrace life or weather its storms. I work with clients to recognise the origins of their difficulties so that together we might arrive at a place where life is understandable, emotional experiences can be managed and they might find validation and a valued self.

Practice description

I am an experienced Psychotherapist (Psychoanalytic / Psychodynamic) and worked for several years within the NHS as an Adult Psychotherapist before establishing a private practice. I am based in Torbay and Totnes. I will often work with clients who have experienced severe and complex trauma or difficult relational issues, particularly where these have arisen in childhood and continue to be problematic in later life. 

My first session

Making the choice to see a therapist, not to mention finding someone you're comfortable with and trust can feel result in feeling vulnerable and confused. In the first session you will be asked to talk about your current life situation as well as important life experiences, events and relationships. Over time we work together to understand the core problems that you are currently facing as well trying to understand the origins of these problems. Therapy is not always easy and at times requires courage to explore memories and experiences that can be painful and overwhelming. Behaviours and ways of thinking that often create obstacles to us establishing meaning in our relationships and life in general are often difficult to understand and let go. The process of growth and awareness often requires an acknowledgement of our loss and vulnerability. This in itself is often an act of courage.

​Each session in psychotherapy lasts an hour and patients are seen a minimum of once a week.This can be increased to twice or three times weekly.

Each session costs £50.
