I have extensive experience of working with a range of issues, including relationship difficulties, anxiety and depression, low self confidence and self esteem, difficulty communicating feelings and emotions, suicidal feelings, abuse, self harm and eating disorders.
I offer a safe and non-judgemental space to think about your difficulties so that we can understand them together. A psychodynamic way of working is to look for patterns from the past that might be repeating themselves in adulthood and together find ways to overcome and make changes to enable you to feel differently.
If you would like to consider the possibility of therapy with me, then please telephone or email me and I will contact you to arrange a consultation.
I first qualified as a Psychodynamic Counsellor/Psychotherapist (which is a rigorous 5 years of training at WPF), and then I continued in further extensive training at WPF and qualified as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, licensed to work in twice a week therapy. WPF is one of the most respected training bodies in London.
I am also a qualified supervisor to counsellors and psychotherapists.
