About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified and accredited Couple and individual Psychodynamic Psychotherapist.  I completed my specialist couples training at the internationally renowned Tavistock Relationships Clinic where I continue to work as a Senior Therapist in the Online International Team.

I have worked for RELATE and as a School of Life Psychotherapist. 

Practice description

I practice a psychodynamic approach to therapy which means we will work together to explore your past and what lies beneath your patterns of  thoughts and behaviour.  The aim is to understand and process - without judgement - how the past may be impacting you and your relationships in the present day.

Sessions last 50 minutes and we will meet at the same time on the same day.  The session time belongs to you.  If you arrive late, I will not be able to make up the lost time but will of course be able to see you for the remainder of the time available.

Consistency and commitment are important aspects of working together.  Your time is reserved just for you.  If you are unable to make a session, I will try to reschedule to another time that week,  otherwise all missed and cancelled sessions are paid for. 

Daytime fees, 9am-4pm, Online and Face to Face

- Individual £90 and Couples £100

Evening fees, 5pm onwards , Online only

- All sessions £120

My first session

We will initially meet for a 75 minute consultation where we will think together about 'why now?' and what you hope to achieve from our work together.  I will ask you about your childhood and significant life events. I will invite you back for a 50 minute continued consultation where we can think together about the previous session and if therapy is something you would like to embark on. If we are in agreement to proceed, we will agree a start date.
