About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified Psychodynamic therapist - some of the issues I help clients find resolution with are anxiety, trauma, addiction and relationship problems, amongst other things. Additionally, I am undertaking CPD in Psychosexual therapy so can work with these type of issues as well. 

My work as a therapist follows the Psychodynamic approach. Through providing a trusting and honest relationship I can bring insight of the unconscious (what's not in your awareness) into consciousness to help provide the tools to develop a better understanding of how the past impacts the present as well as resolving issues with interpersonal relationships, defences, and emotions. 

If you are interested in reading more about the therapeutic approach that I use, please read this link: https://www.bacp.co.uk/about-therapy/types-of-therapy/psychodynamic-therapy/.

I work online and by telephone as I was fortunate enough to develop my practice and undergo additional training when Covid-19 began and found this to be really accessible way of reaching clients. I have also found that sometimes people find it easier to talk about some topics when they are not physically in the room with you. 

 

Practice description

My initial training has been enhanced by professional level study of Online and Telephone Counselling, Counselling Children and Young People and Emotion Focused Therapy approaches.

The values I strive towards are warmth, inclusivity, honesty, understanding and congruence. I practice this in my commitment to continued personal and professional development, particularly with regards to cultural understanding and anti-racism. The ways that I do this are collaborating with people from marginalised communities and diverse heritages, reading and learning as well as from continued training.

I have worked for a number of voluntary and community organisations over the years as well as in custodial settings.
