I am a fully qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist with many years experience working with people with a wide range of presenting issues.
I offer a safe, calm and supportive space where you can talk freely without fear of judgement or criticism.
We can all reach moments in our lives when we find it hard to cope.This may be linked to a recent life event such as a bereavement, relationship difficulties, or may seem to come out of nowhere.
Seeking therapy can be the beginning of a life changing journey. Therapy can offer support at a time when it may feel difficult to speak to those around us.
By talking through what troubles us with a trained professional, we can gain fresh insight into ourselves and our emotional world, leading to greater self awareness and new ways of relating.
As a psychodynamic psychotherapist, I believe that much of our emotional difficulty is linked to early life experience and that by exploring and working to understand this, we can free ourselves from negative patterns of thought and behaviour, leading to greater self-acceptance and positive change.
At an initial consultation you can tell me about yourself and why you are seeking therapy, ask questions and have an experience of what it might be like to be in therapy and if you would feel comfortable working with me.
If you decide you would like to proceed, we would then agree an ongoing therapy arrangement based around your individual therapeutic needs.
I offer short term and open-ended arrangements.
I am happy to discuss any of this and anything else you may wish to ask, over the telephone or by email or text, as I know from experience how daunting it can seem to take that first step.
