"Is psychotherapy for me?" might be a question you have asked yourself. As a psychotherapist/counsellor, based in Esher, Surrey, I am experienced and interested in issues such as anxiety, relationship problems, depression, unresolved childhood issues, work related problems, stress and bereavement. With over 24 years' experience, I provide a calm and peaceful setting within which we can work on what it is that distresses you. I have worked extensively within the NHS as well as in private practice. Based in Surrey, within walking distance of bus and train connections and there is parking available.
Free initial telephone consultation.
Therapy works. If you are asking yourself "is therapy for me?" then now might be a good time to find out.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Integrative Counselling - Kingston College - 1997
Integrative counselling provides a grounding in five main models of psychotherapy including the grandaddy of them all - psychoanalytic psychotherapy. This training was invaluable because it incorporated spiritual and humanistic aspects as well.
MSc Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy - University College London/Nafsiyat - 2000
Borrowing from the social sciences, cultural studies and anthropoligy this training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy provided the context within which we seek to make meaning of our lives. Seeking therapy often springs from our personal inner conflicts. Sometimes these are rooted in our early lives. Or it may be things that have happened recenly. Many roads lead to the goal of living fully and with meaning. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy helps to make contact with our past and enable us to function in the present.
I provide long and short term therapy.
