About me and my therapy practice

I work psychodynamically and use my meditation practice to be attentive to clients and reflective about our work. Because of my own experience of long-term psychoanalytic psychotherapy I  encourage clients to consider an open-ended (at least) once weekly arrangement. This gives us the opportunity to work at the kind of depth that can result in significant and lasting change. 

I can meet in person or online and in certain circumstances will also make home visits. I enjoy walking for its calming and liberating effects on mind and body as well as the chance it gives me to wonder at and be soothed by nature. If you are interested to try this with me, please ask.

Practice description

My experience thus far means I can work with adults of any age who have experienced childhood trauma, abuse, neglect and abandonment. I can also work with older adults who are managing the challenges of mid-life or the transition into the third age. Many   of my clients have experienced intermittent anxiety and depression throughout their lives. I am interested in supporting clients to grieve their losses fully and thereby rediscover their inner resilience, potential and hope.

My first session

There is no charge for your first session with me as I view a first meeting as an opportunity for us to explore together if and for how long we might work fruitfully on your concerns. At present because of COVID-19 the first session would be online. The first session lasts 50 minutes.
