About me and my therapy practice

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist offering individual weekly therapy. I offer a safe and confidential space for those looking for both long and short-term therapy. I work with clients with a variety of concerns and difficulties. This includes those experiencing anxiety, depression, OCD, self-esteem and eating disorders; those struggling to cope with pressures of work, ill-health, relationships and study; those wanting to makes changes in their lives or those simply wanting to understand themselves better and make sense of their emotions and inner conflicts. I trained at WPF (Westminster Pastoral Foundation) and am a member of the FPC, BACP and UKCP. In addition I have more than 20 years experience as a mental health professional in the NHS working with patients with a range of mental health conditions. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is based on the principles of psychoanalysis. This is the belief that early relationships and experiences have an influence on an individual's emotional development. In practice this means working with the therapist to identify relationship patterns and thought processes. Our work will explore current difficulties with forming or maintaining relationships, managing work and study and other stressors or situations. Psychotherapy can be useful in the treatment of anxiety, depression and other disorders such as eating disorders. It can bring about long term change both in depression and anxiety but also in the areas of self-esteem, understanding the self, in developing new patterns and in learning to cope with everyday stresses. To start this process we would meet for an initial assessment session, lasting up to an hour and a half. Once we have agreed that we could work together, we will arrange regular weekly sessions . This will be an open-ended arrangement or for a specified time eg 3 to 6 months.
