About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor and see clients on a 1 to 1 basis in Kingsclere. Do you find you have a lot of people around you but no one you can talk to because you don't want them to worry? Or you may not have anyone around you who you can talk to. I can give you the time and space to talk about whatever is worrying you, and somewhere you will not be judged.

The psychodynamic approach is derived from psychoanalysis but focusses on immediate problems to try and find a quicker solution. Together we think about these difficulties and how past experiences may have shaped current behaviour. I will listen, empathise, encourage and challenge a different way of thinking, and I will help you to see things from a different perspective. In time you will be able to be in control of things rather than being controlled by them.

You can get in touch by either calling, emailing or contacting me through my website. I will contact you and arrange for us to meet for an initial consultation. Here we can discuss what is troubling you and will give us the opportunity to see whether we might be able to work together. We will then agree on a day and time and we can start the process.

I work in Kingsclere and there is parking nearby and a bus stop right outside with bus routes to both Newbury and Basingstoke. We have disabled access and although my consulting room is on the first floor, I have the use of a room on the ground level if needed.

I am based in Kingsclere, a village in Hampshire. Kingsclere is only 6 miles from Tadley, 8 miles from Newbury, 8.5 miles from Thatcham, 6.2 miles from Overton, 8.6 miles from Witchurch, 8.7 miles from Basingstoke as well as all the surrounding villages.
