About me and my therapy practice

As a therapist, I work closely with my client and we decide together what therapy intervention is likely to be most helpful for you. I am interested in what you have to say and your experience of the world we are in.

I am a trained psychodynamic psychotherapist and have experience of working with  individuals and couples. I have also addition training in supervision, teaching and mentoring. The diversity of my experience and training means I have worked with a wide range of people and as a result have experience of working with a wide range of presenting problems.

My therapeutic approach is psychodynamic and humanistic. My therapeutic style is centred on respect and empathy as I believe we are all vulnerable and anyone can need the support of a therapist at any time.

 I provide a safe and non-judgement space which should allow you to talk about your difficulties and share your struggles. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is not a treatment you are prescribed or given: you play an active part in it. We can explore together how your issues link with your hopes and aspirations. 

Practice description

Everyone is unique, through the therapeutic relationship, I work to fully understand what past and at times future events are at the root of your problem enabling you to be more self-aware. The depth of your awareness would give you a better understanding and the confidence to change. Together we will find a way forward. I aim to help you take better control of your life.

My first session

The first meeting with me is an assessment appointment. At this meeting an appropriate form of therapy will be worked out with you. This is an opportunity for you to ask me about anything you feel unsure about and for us to see whether we can work together.
