About me and my therapy practice
An experience of loss can often act as a catalyst for seeking out psychological help. The loss may be actual, as in the death of a person, but it is often another kind of loss that we might be experiencing, when we feel we have lost a sense of who and what we are. Psychodynamic counselling is a form of therapy that is rooted within psychoanalysis. The aim of Psychodynamic therapy, as it is within Psychoanalysis, is to uncover the specific meaning of our experience as well as its impact and influence upon the various aspects of our lives. There may be instances when we experience a lack of resolution or we sense a particular unease concerning an aspect of our life that we intuitively feel requires attention and therefore revisiting and exploring.
To know ourselves deeply, it can be useful to understand the relationship between our early experiences and our life in the present. The past exerts a powerful and complex influence upon our sense of self, our relationships and our lives. Psychodynamic therapy can be a useful way to explore how the past actively shapes our understanding and therefore our actions and reactions to the world in and around us. Until we can see how the past influences our lives it can be difficult to know what changes we need to make in the present.
My first session
During a first session, I like to explore with you what has brought you to counselling and what you are looking and hoping to gain from this process. I think of this time as an important opportunity for you to reflect on whether you feel I am the right counsellor for you.
I charge £50 per session of 50 minutes and I ask that you give 48 hours notice, else the charge will be the agreed fee when you cancel a session.
