About me and my therapy practice

Qualified therapist comfortable with difficult life stories & complex family dynamics. I can support you with bereavement, trauma, dissociation, menopause, domestic violence, sexual assault and PTSD.

You may want to talk through a current dilemma or explore something rooted in your past. Maybe anxiety or depression are showing up as headaches, pain, irritability, anger or insomnia. No matter what is troubling you I offer a caring, welcoming space to explore your thoughts and feelings.

I support clients who have experienced all manner of emotional distress, e.g.

  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Menopause
  • Infertility & Miscarriage
  • childhood neglect and abuse
  • Sexual assault & Domestic Violence
  • Trauma and Dissociation

My training and education include a Post Graduate Diploma Psychodynamic Psychotherapeutic Counselling, Masters in Psychoanalytic Studies & BA (Hons) Therapeutic Psychology as well as additional training in Trauma and Dissociation.

Practice description

You may wish to talk about something in your session that is currently happening in your life, your relationships, work, feelings, or dreams. Sessions are yours to explore whatever emerges. The process may find links to your past that illuminate your present. Therapy is a space where you come to understand yourself better.

I trained as a psychodynamic therapist; this means I am alert to possible unconscious processes which manifest in a client’s behaviour. Psychodynamic counselling endeavours to get to the root cause of your problems and address the symptoms and emotions they bring up for you now. It gives you a safe space to consider how formative experiences might be influencing your relating patterns now, giving you opportunities to consider ways to adapt and change.

It is my job to listen and support you whether you bring an issue located in the here and now or rooted in your past. I am comfortable working with gender, sexual & relationship diversity including LGBTQ+ and alternative lifestyles.
