About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified psychoanalytic psychotherapist and a psychodynamic counsellor.

The focus of psychoanalytic and psychodynamic therapy is concerned with addressing underlying issues. These may manifest in the relationship that develops between us and we use this to undersatnd unconscious processes which are likely to be influencing the way you live your life and the relationships you have.

This takes time so this therapy is likely to be long term although people often experience some relief soon after starting therapy.

I have extensive experience helping with anxiety and depression, also compulsive behaviour including intrusive thoughts.

About me and my therapy practice

My initial training has been as a psychodynamic counsellor and I have trained as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. I also completed a post graduate training in CBT. I therefore have a broad knowledge of different approaches which I believe adds to my capacity as a supervisor of counselling practice from different perspectives.

My aim as a supervisor is to support, challenge and facilitate growth and development in my supervisees with the intention of furthering their safe and effective practice with the people they work with.

We do this by exploring what happens in the room with a focus on the relationship between the therapeutic couple.

I have been in private practice as a therapist for 20 years and have been supervising counsellors since 2012 both individually and in groups.

I have a private consulting room in a rural location between Ross-on-Wye, Ledbury and Newent.
