About me and my therapy practice
Emotional difficulties and mental health problems frequently coincide with life events such as addiction, marriage, divorce, work, moving home, transitions, childbirth, bereavement, loss and stress.
The way I work is firstly to try and establish a rapport with my client so that they feel at ease enough to talk freely about their thoughts and concerns.
One of the aims of psychodynamic therapy is to bring the unconscious mind into consciousness- helping individuals to unravel, experience, and understand their true, deep rooted feelings in order to resolve them.
I like to work with what is happening in the relationship with myself and my client, e.g. how the client is expressing himself, how the client feels being with me, is the client able to be clear in their communication with me about what they want to say?, If my client is struggling to communicate his/her thoughts and feelings with me, it is likely that they are struggling with this in their personal and work relationships.
Between us we would hope to become aware of any thoughts or feelings they may be supressing, and try to identify any defence/coping mechanisms that they may have adapted over the years.
I also like to work with any distorted thoughts or feelings they may have about themselves or others, with the view to help them gain a healthier , more realistic perspective.
Together we would hope to gain insight and understanding as to what is causing the symptoms with an aim to alleviate any pain and suffering.
I provide Face to Face therapy in my private practice and online with either WhatsAp,Skype,Zoom, Telephone.
