About me and my therapy practice

I'm a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor. I see individuals and couples for short-term and open-ended therapy.

I have a particular interest in men's issues - which I would see as not only useful for male clients, in terms of a better understanding of male psychology and behaviour, but also helpful for other clients in managing possible gender-related difference/difficulties.

I've been working as a therapist for almost 20 years and work with a number of different issues, including relationship problems, anxiety and depression. My short-term work may focus on more immediate issues such as emotional communication/trust difficulties with a partner, current work stress/changes, difficult/contentious work relationships and bereavement. Longer term work can be helpful in resolving longer standing issues, ranging from childhood trauma, through recurring relationship difficulties to developing a more true and authentic sense of self and self-worth.

In both short and longer term work, techniques from a number of theoretical approaches such as Psychodynamic and CBT may be used. I work collaboratively, tailoring my approach to the needs and objectives of each person - and there will be an emphasis on your strengths and resources in dealing with real-life issues. 

I will reply to emails, but would then usually suggest a preliminary 'phone call - for you to tell me more about what you are looking to work on - and for us to discuss whether my approach could be useful. This can then be followed by an initial appointment, which can be face-to-face or by telecounselling/videocounselling. This first appointment helps me to build a fuller history/focus for the work - and helps you to decide if working with me will be helpful

Individual appointments £45. Couple appointments £55.
