Life and relationships can feel difficult or confusing for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes it can be very hard to make sense of your experiences or symptoms like depression and anxiety without professional help. Psychotherapy can help to develop an understanding of why things are the way they are, with the aim of helping you to find new ways of coping from the inside and to be able to get on with your life and relationships more freely.
I work with people from all walks of life with a wide range of difficulties and aspirations. I currently see patients privately and in the NHS.
I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist and registered member of the British Psychoanalytic Council, MBPC. I am a member of the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists. I am also a registered accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, Reg.MBACP (Accred).
I am also an approved BUPA provider for psychodynamic psychotherapy and DIT.

Quite often people feel a time limited treatment hasn't been long enough to adequately work-through or understand their emotional and psychological problems. This can cause unrealistic expectations along with feeling lost and misunderstood. Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is a substantial in-depth treatment which can help you to develop your thinking and a deeper understanding of your life and relationships so that change can take place.
Formal psychotherapy may also be considered if you are struggling with the following or similar difficulties in your life:
- Persistent depression
- Feelings of emptiness or dread or boredom
- Relationship difficulties
- Loss or bereavement that feels increasingly more difficult to cope with as time goes by
- Anxiety, panic attacks, physical restlessness
- Constant rumination or chatter in the mind and unwanted thoughts
- Difficulties in understanding your thoughts and feelings with the arrival of a new baby, or post natal depression
- Sleep problems which may include insomnia or nightmares or night terrors
- Addictive relationships with alcohol, drugs, pain killers, sex, internet use, gambling and over eating
