About me and my therapy practice

Own worst enemy?

Do you fear being criticised, rejected or abandoned?

Perhaps you long to be understood but worry about burdening another with your problems?

You feel sad, guilty and being angry is destructive.

You feel pressured to be “good”, “nice” or “perfect” in hopes of receiving closeness, this makes it difficult to be self-assertive and resolve conflicts. Sometimes you may over-idealise others then feel a failure in comparison. Maybe you’re worried that its selfish to look after yourself and allowing enjoyment comes at a cost. Self-hatred feels paradoxically comforting and there is a relief in being worthless.

Would you like access self-worth and fulfil that emptiness?

Imagine feeling free from this persecutory shame and guilt so you can relate to others in a confident way. You can be happy with who you are without being self-centred or narcissistic. Being able to stick up for yourself in a controlled and loving way. Maintain healthy meaningful relationships where there is mutual respect, security and no rejection. You no longer hesitate in allowing joy or opportunities.

Practice description

Through a warm curiosity, we will find the actual causes of depression and anxiety instead of just “coping.” You will gain insight about yourself and unravel the years of pain, moving towards real lasting change.

Issues created in past relationships can be repaired within a therapeutic relationship without further risk of shame. We will explore your experiences, thoughts and dreams without you feeling dissected or intruded upon.

I do in person session at 'Leicester Centre for Psychodynamic Counselling', 12 Princess Road West, Leicester, LE1 6TP as well as online sessions.

I offer a free consultation and charge £50 per session thereafter.
