About me and my therapy practice

Life can be a challenge. Sometimes stress, anxiety, or low mood can be overwhelming. Whatever worries you about your psychological health, psychodynamic psychotherapy can usually help. It gives you the opportunity to look deeper into your problems. Working with me will help you express feelings and thoughts and - at times - explore earlier events, to gain insight into difficulties you may be experiencing in your current life.

I'm particularly experienced in the areas of loss and bereavement.

As a specialism, I've also been helping people battle addictions for nearly twenty-five years, and I understand the emotional challenges involved in achieving long-term sobriety. Clients often find me a valuable additional support as they embark on 12-step programmes for alcohol or drugs etc.

As an involved father to two young kids, I've also found that clients bring parenting issues to our work. It's been hugely nourishing to sit with mums and dads as they negotiate the challenging emotional dynamics of family life.

I bring diverse experiences to my therapeutic work: I ran a derivatives trading team before training as a psychotherapist, so I understand the high-pressure modern work environment and what it can take to maintain emotional balance in contemporary life.

Psychodynamic work is often viewed as the most orthodox, or conventional, of the talking therapies. I’m probably more on the relational scale of things, so you'll probably experience me as warm and welcoming. Our sessions will often feel like a safe conversation, where you'll be able to speak freely about your concerns.

To set up an initial consultation or to discuss any questions, please call me on 07940-364905.

Psychotherapy can be the single most enriching journey a human being can undergo. If you feel like beginning, I'd like to hear from you.
