About me and my therapy practice
I am a psychoanalytic therapist, which means using language to understand your beliefs about yourself and your place in the world, and how these beliefs can limit you. But where the classic notion of the analyst is one who is mostly silent, I prefer something more like a conversation. I tend toward being direct and saying what I think is happening rather than maintaining a mysterious silence.
I have seen many individuals and couples over the last six years I have spent in private practise. In my view the key requirement for those seeking therapy is curiosity about the self. If I had to choose a speciality it would be the following presentations:
* Lacking a sense of direction
* Personal relations leave a bitter taste in the mouth
* Struggle to know what will make you happy
Call or email me for a confidential discussion and to arrange a consultation.
My fee for individuals is £60 per session during the day, £80 after 5pm; £90 for couples.
I also reserve a limited number of spaces during the day for people on low incomes. In these cases we can negotiate fees based on your circumstances.
My first session
The first therapy session is a consultation. This is an exploratory session where we can begin to get to grips with what troubles you. It will give you a chance to see how therapy can help you.
