About me and my therapy practice

Therapy can provide you with vital things like a confidential witness on your journey of self-discovery. As relational beings, therapy allows us an opportunity to have a deeper relationship with someone. A relationship that can help replicate deeper ones elsewhere in your life. I believe part of my role as a therapist is to facilitate this space for my clients.

I work with clients both in the long term and the short term. I class long-term contracts as 6+ months while considering short-term contracts to be any number of sessions that takes place over a period that is less than 6 months. In your initial consultation, one of our discussion points will be how long you would like to be in therapy for.

I am experienced in working with adults and young people as a therapist. And have also spent many years working within the charity sector to provide support to young people and vulnerable adults.  

Practice description

As an integrative therapist, I draw on various therapeutic techniques in order to meet you wherever you may be. The core modality of my practice is psychodynamic, underpinning my work and helping to support me in creating a relationship where underlying unconscious issues that may prevent you from thoroughly enjoying your life can be explored and brought into your awareness.

My goal as your therapist is to help you understand yourself better. I do this by shedding light on things that may be out of your awareness, supporting you in unravelling and making sense of any difficulties and working with you to discover your path to wellness.

My first session

I treat the first session as an initial consultation. One of the main aims of this session is for me to get a better sense of you and how I may be able to support you. These sessions also allow you to get a sense of me as a therapist so that you can make a more informed decision on if you feel like I am the right therapist for you.

All sessions are 50 minutes long.
