About me

I trained as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and have worked in a variety of settings, with individuals and groups for several years.

Psychotherapy can be short or long-term, depending on what the patient feels they need at the time. The sessions last for 50 minutes and are held once-a-week at a regular set time.

When contact is first made, by email, we would arrange to meet for an initial consulation. The consultation is offered free of charge as it gives the patient and therapist the chance to decide whether they feel they would be able to work together.

Therapy refers to a 'patient', one who suffers, as opposed to a client. A patient has come to therapy as they have reached a point in their lives when they acknowledge that they need professional help. Once this first step is taken, as it is often the most difficult one to make, the journey begins.

During the initial consultation, the patient would have an opportunity to talk about themselves and give a brief overview of their situation, explaining why they have come to seek individual therapy at this stage in their life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained with The Arbours Training Programme as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist. The training was completed over a 7-year period and consisted of working within The Arbours Therapeutic Communities and The Arbours Crisis Centre. During the placements and subsequent employment within The Arbours Communities and The Arbours Crisis Centre, I worked with patients suffering from Anorexia, Bulimia and Eating Disorders, Self-Harm, Borderline personality disorder and Schizophrenia. The communities involved overnight stays working as a facilitator and with experiential group therapy. I have post-qualification experience working on a one-to-one basis with patients suffering from manic depression, anxiety, depression, bereavement and eating disorders.
