About me and my therapy practice

The therapeutic relationship is central to how I work. I will provide you a space which is safe and contained and in which we can think together about how you understand yourself and your relationships with others. I am particularly interested in understanding how we make sense of things both consciously and unconsciously and how our early experiences affect how we feel about ourselves and our relationships throughout our lives.

I am experienced at working both with young and older adults as well as people from a wide variety of ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds with several years’ experience working as a Psychotherapist in NHS Secondary Care and as a Counsellor in higher education.

If you feel I may be able to help, or you would like to find out more about my approach please do get in touch via email or telephone to arrange a brief initial telephone consultation for which I do not charge.

Practice description

I offer sessions at a minimum of once a week frequency. My practice is psychanalytically informed and the regularity and security of the frame (meeting at the same time and place each week) is central to the therapeutic approach I offer.  

My first session

I always suggest at least 2 initial consultations to give space to get to know each other, to have an understanding of what you are bringing and also of how I work and could help you. The first consultation is usually longer to give you time to tell me about yourself in an unhurried manner. The second consultation will include time to talk about the therapeutic contract which we agree to in ongoing work together.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a Psychodynamic Supervisor. I have a Diploma in Supervision from the Society of Analytical Psychology (SAP) and I work as a clinical supervisor within a university counselling service and privately. I am experienced at working with both qualified counsellors and psychotherapists, and honorary (in training) counsellors and psychotherapists. I work with groups and individuals and have a particular interest in supervising short-term work and in thinking about how to work with the transference and countertransference in short focused interventions. Please contact me via phone or email if you would like to discuss supervision sessions with me.
