About me and my therapy practice

I provide counselling for people who are struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety and relationship problems, particularly where the root causes seem to stem from damaging experiences earlier in life.

Just being able to talk to someone in confidence is healing in itself  and may be all that some people need. As a psychodynamic counsellor, however, I believe that current life issues often have their roots in what happened earlier in life. I believe that the healing process is more effective if there is some linking of the past to the present.

I also believe that everyone has a healing power within them and it is the counsellor’s role to help release that power.

Psychodynamic therapy is not generally about fixing a particular issue, although this can be a consequence. It covers the whole person – beliefs, attitudes, values, thought processes, emotions, and behaviours. Psychodynamic therapy is not for everyone as some have a specific issue that can be addressed by other types of counselling.

I offer short-term or open-ended counselling with regular weekly sessions of 50 minutes each.

My first session

The first session is an assessment lasting for  90 minutes. It gives me a chance to understand your situation and decide whether I feel my approach would benefit you. It gives you a chance to meet me and to find out if counselling will help. The session costs £65.
