About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and Counsellor, providing once or twice weekly sessions. I provide a confidential, warm and secure therapeutic space. Please contact me if you would like to arrange a face to face session in Clifton Village, Bristol, online on Zoom, or on the telephone.

My approach is based on psychodynamic principles which can help you to make sense of current struggles. By exploring the unconscious it is possible to begin to understand and process difficulties rooted in the past.

Unconscious patterns of behaviour affect one's experience of the world; this approach allows for a gradual exploration of deeper conflicts, bringing to light protective but maladaptive ways of coping. This process can bring together a more coherent understanding of the self and better equip one to deal with life's challenges. The capacity to develop in this way helps one to discover a deeper sense of identity, maintain better relationships, experience more meaning in everyday life and make positive choices.

Something difficult may have happened in your life, or you may feel overwhelmed and anxious, unhappy or worried but you’re not sure why or how to change things. I have experience of talking to people who have come to therapy for a wide variety of reasons, such as depression, anxiety and lack of self-confidence. I welcome those of any age, culture, gender and background. 

Practice description

The Practice Rooms in Clifton is a calm, professional and pleasant building. The rooms are large and airy, providing privacy and a safe setting for your therapeutic journey.

My first session

I usually arrange two initial meetings to explore whether Psychodynamic therapy is right for you. I will ask you more questions to begin with to get a sense of your history . In the second session you will have a chance to reflect on how the therapy feels. If we decide to work together we will arrange to meet at least once a week for 50 minutes, and think together about what feels right in terms of the length and frequency of therapy
