About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced and qualified Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and Counsellor. I provide a confidential, warm and secure therapeutic space for people with a broad range of issues and concerns. 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.
I am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council and the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My approach is based on psychoanalytic principles which helps to make sense of and work through current struggles, as well as to address 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 an expanded sense of self helps one to discover a deeper sense of identity, maintain better relationships, experience more meaning in everyday life and make positive choices.
I welcome those of any age, culture, gender and background. I have experience of talking to people who have come to therapy for a wide variety of reasons. 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.
If you contact me we will arrange an initial meeting to explore whether Psychodynamic therapy is right for you. 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 of the therapy.
