About me and my therapy practice

There are times in all our lives when our emotions feel overwhelming, we can feel distressed, confused, unhappy, and even worry about becoming unwell with a mental health problem. Psychoanalytic therapy can help us to better understand ourselves and to work through our difficulties.

Sometimes we don’t understand the beliefs and fears that shape our way of looking at and living in the world, as they have become ingrained and automatic. We can find ourselves repeating harmful behaviours, feeling stuck in unhappy relationships, experiencing confusion about our sense of identity and stunting our emotional, creative and professional development.

Especially at this time, many struggle to come to terms with painful experiences of loss and change that can challenge our ability to cope.

At the heart of psychoanalytic therapy is the recognition that our unconscious emotional life is part of being human. Regular sessions provide a stable structure that allows us to connect with and understand what happens for you at a deeper level. By offering greater attention and thought, it's possible to bring about authentic change, even to substantially difficult areas of your life, diminishing suffering and opening up your capacity for fulfilment.
