About me and my therapy practice

I have trained as a psychodynamic therapist and have almost 20 years of experience.  I have worked with a wide variety of people in a variety of settings including the voluntary sector, the NHS and in private practice.  

I believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship, based on respect, trust and authenticity.  Working together we look at early life experiences and how they may be impacting on your life experiences now.  While the past is important we look at your current life situation and changes which would benefit you.

I have taught psychotherapy for many years and draw on this experience in my work.  I am also a qualified supervisor and have taught on supervision courses.

I offer brief therapy (12 sessions) and open ended work.

Practice description

The aim is to create a therapeutic alliance where you will feel safe for us to work together.  I believe that the relationship is very important in this work and I welcome feedback on how you feel the work is progressing.  The relationship is based on authenticity and respect.  In learning more about ourselves we gain a better understanding of the anxieties which trouble us and gives us the opportunity to start making changes in our lives.  

My first session

I offer a free ( up to 90 minute) Initial Consultation which is quite structured in order to build a good picture of you and your current distress.  This is either in person or online.  From this the focus on future therapy would be decided.  We would also decide on either Brief Therapy or Open Ended Therapy.  We would also decide on the fee. The other sessions are 50 minutes and focus on the your issues.
