About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified Integrative Psychodynamic Counsellor, in the final stages of an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy. I have also been an Anglican Priest for seventeen years. I think that human-beings want and need relationships; and that many aspects of our character, resilience and capacity to connect meaningfully with others comes from our early life experiences with care givers, and our environment. We know that when our most formative relationships didn’t go as well as anyone hoped they would, we can become more vulnerable to trauma, abuse, toxic relationships or, sometimes, just a feeling of never having quite achieved our potential. Many people enter counselling and psychotherapy feeling ‘disconnected’ from their feelings, their bodies and the world around them. As an Integrative Psychodynamic Counsellor I want to work with you in a way which is ‘co-created’. You and I become partners in seeking to understand what’s troubling you and where things have got stuck over time. ‘Psychodynamic’ refers to an understanding that all of us have aspects of our personalities which are ‘out of sight’ or ‘unconscious’ but which can nevertheless determine our behaviour and influence our decisions in a way which can be very puzzling - and sometimes very distressing. ‘Integration’ is about how we work together, using the therapeutic relationship, to enable you to reconnect with what has been hidden, and make peace with it. Carl Jung said, “That which we do not bring to consciousness appears in our life as fate”. I currently work in my private practice on Wednesday mornings and evenings, at two different locations in Lancaster. Do get in touch if you want to find out more.
