About me and my therapy practice
As a qualified and experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor, I have worked for the last 15 years offering both short and long term counselling within the voluntary sector, the NHS, and my own private practice.
The way I work is using the Psychodynamic approach, which is based on the belief that present day-to-day problems are linked to unresolved issues from the past. This can often result in a person repeating unhelpful and negative patterns in relationships, friendships or in work. As these patterns emerge early on in life, we can often be completely unaware of how they affect us. In the counselling relationship, I will work with you to help increase awareness, recognise, and seek to change these unhelpful patterns.
My experience ranges from working as a Primary Care Counsellor within a GP surgery; a Counsellor with organisations offering support to survivors of rape, childhood sexual abuse or any sexual assault; and working within Employer Assistance Programmes (EAP) and my own private practice.

Working with recurring problems and negative repeating patterns in relationships, personal life and work
