About me and my therapy practice

I am a chartered health psychologist, psychodynamic counsellor and senior trainee in Jungian analytical psychotherapy working in private practice in Birmingham city centre.  I have completed training in using a number of approaches that are all 'talking therapies'. These include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness based CBT, and psychodynamic counselling, but most of my work now is in Jungian analytical psychotherapy.

The first step for someone coming for therapy is to have an initial meeting with me. I will listen carefully to what has brought them to seek therapy, discuss their needs and preferences, and answer questions they may have about how I work. Then I will think with them about the options, and seek to agree the way forward. That is often to continue in therapy with me, but if I am not the right match, I will try to provide information on other options that may be more suitable for the individual.

Psychotherapy is suited to people who wish to work in depth to understand their inner world. People come for therapy for many different reasons including relationship problems, loss, coping with illness, depression, anxiety, abuse or trauma. I see people once, twice or three times a week.

Accessibility: Birmingham city centre offices, all on ground floor, no steps.
