About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor working with individuals and offering both open ended and brief focussed counselling.
I work with people who are:
- *from all walks of live - business, legal, civil servants, local government, education, medical and caring professions, the arts, sciences, unemployed, retired
- *of all ages from 18 - 90+ years of age
When someone comes to see me, I think the most important thing to attend to is the need to be heard. I offer a supportive non judgmental and confidential space where we can try to understand the distress and help to untangle the feelings and emotions involved. I find it helpful to consider the present issues by reflecting on past patterns of responding to situations and to think about why those patterns are no longer helping. My hope is to the clients come to understand themselves better through a process of active reflection and to make sense of their lives.
I offer both open ended and short term therapy contracts. I have specialised in time limited work as I firmly believe that having a specific focus can help shift a pattern of behaviour or thinking that may have been useful in the past but is no longer helpful.
However there are many cases where a long term approach is more appropriate and this is something we can discuss in a first meeting.
If after an initial assessment session, group or couple therapy seem more appropriate, I have a network of colleagues to whom I can refer.
