About me and my therapy practiceI am a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist offering long-term (open-ended) psychotherapy, or short-term psychotherapy with a focus (Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy). The latter is one of the therapies recommended for depression in the NHS as an alternative to CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) or antidepressants. I have worked in the NHS and in private practice for 7 years. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I have particular interest in working with people who suffer from depression, anxiety, have relationship issues or self-destructive habits, concerns about their gender or sexuality or body image, an abusive past or traumatic experiences, difficulties within their family, bereavement, or a general feeling of unhappiness about themselves and their lives that might be difficult to pinpoint.
My first session
I offer a free 15 minute video consultation, so that I can learn a bit more about you and explain how I work. If we agreed to meet, the first session would involve me learning about your family background, your relationships and the problems you are seeking help with. Then we could discuss what kind of approach would suit you best - short-term work with a focus or a more open-ended exploratory therapy.
