About me and my therapy practice
I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist with over 20 years’ experience of working in the NHS and private practice. I can offer help to people who are dealing with a wide range of issues, such as relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression and bereavement. I work psychodynamically, which means concentrating on understanding and addressing complicated thoughts and feelings. I aim to create a supportive environment in which people can feel safe enough to discuss the issues that are really troubling them.
Although I am interested and experienced in offering therapy for all types of psychological issues, I have specialist expertise in working with women during pregnancy and postnatally. This includes ante-natal and post-natal depression, ambivalence regarding parenthood, fears of giving birth and traumatic birth. I have considerable experience in working with women and couples who have lost a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth and termination.
My other specialist areas include working psychotherapeutically with haematology patients (blood cancers), women with gynaecological and psychosexual issues and university student counselling. Prior to advanced training as a psychotherapist, I was a Senior Psychiatric Social Worker specialising in Child and Family Psychotherapy.
Practice descriptionI initially offer a consultation to discuss your concerns and to think whether psychotherapy would be helpful. If we agree that we could work together, I will offer a regular session, probably on a weekly basis, for us to meet. My aim is to make it possible for you to think in new ways about the issues that are troubling you and how to manage them.
