About me

Welcome! I believe psychotherapy should be a safe, confidential and regular space in which to talk about feelings, experiences and difficulties, with a therapist you have developed a trusting therapeutic relationship with over time. Understanding how past experiences and relationships can impact on current difficulties can help a person better cope in the future.

I have over 17 years experience in the mental health field and offer a professional, compassionate service.

I use attachment theory and relational psychoanalysis to inform most aspects of my practice.

Getting started and finding the right therapist can feel overwhelming, and can take a great deal of courage. The first step to contacting me is to phone or e-mail, so that we can have a conversation on the phone about your hopes for therapy and to agree a time for our initial consultation. I send a confirmation e-mail with a letter attached welcoming you to my practice and outlining what to expect in our first appointment and how to get to my consulting room. My aim is to ensure that you feel welcomed and to create the right environment for us to discuss what you hope to gain from therapy.

I offer both long term therapy and short term therapy. Generally I would see patients once a week and a set time, but can offer twice weekly therapy. I can currently offer appointments during the evenings and daytime on weekdays.
