About me and my therapy practiceI am a qualified therapist working psychodynamically. This way of working values the exploration of previous experiences and their impact on thoughts and behaviour now. I hope that working therapeutically together, we could create a safe and reflective space in which to better understand your difficulties and acknowledge the pain of the past. This engagement with the emotional world can lead to acceptance, healing and growth on a profound level.
I have over seven years' experience of working psychodynamically with adults with a wide range of issues, ranging from low-mood and anxiety to problems with relationships. My time as a bereavement counsellor reflects my interest in giving meaning and space to the complex and deeply distressing experience of loss.
Prior to psychotherapy, I was a NHS psychiatric social worker, supporting adults with severe and enduring mental health problems. Worthwhile in its own right, this time also strengthened my commitment to the value of 'talking therapies' in the alleviation of disruptions to good emotional and mental health.
I was the featured psychodynamic psychotherapist in Talk Yourself Better: A Confused Person's Guide to Therapy, Counselling and Self-help by Ariane Sherine (2018) (https://www.littlebrown.co.uk/titles/ariane-sherine/talk-yourself-better/9781472141330/). I recently wrote about compassion fatigue in the caring professions for Welldoing.org (https://welldoing.org/article/compassion-fatigue-in-caring-professions).
I hope, in working together, we can find a safe and accepting way to understand yourself better and give meaning to your inner world and authenticity to your experience. I look forward to hearing from you.
