About me and my therapy practice

Do you appear to those around you to be functioning, whilst privately struggling with thoughts and feelings that leave you worried about your ability to cope? Do you experience low mood/depression, anxiety or panic attacks?

You may yearn for closeness and support from others but feel anxious and find it difficult to trust? You may have a sense of being adversely affected by experiences from childhood and family? Do you feel confusion around your sense of identity, a lack of self-esteem and resilience and feel unsure about your direction in life?

Are you finding it hard coming to terms with painful loss or change?

Psychodynamic therapy can help us to better understand ourselves and to work through our difficulties, even in substantially difficult areas of our lives. 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. At the heart of psychodynamic therapy is the recognition that our complex and often 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.

Through generously offering time, attention and thought to the areas of your life you’d like to improve, engaging in this type of therapeutic relationship can bring about authentic change. It's possible to significantly diminish psychological suffering, improve your health and wellbeing and open up your capacity for greater fulfilment.
