I offer weekly, individual psychodynamic psychotherapy to adults and adolescents from a choice of two quiet, private rooms in Measham and Leicester. In this confidential environment you have the time and space to think about the difficulties and challenges which have brought you to therapy, and the lasting change you wish to gain from committing to therapy.
The approach I use is not about advise giving or instruction, but rather about putting your problems in the context of your whole life past and present.This could mean examining repeated patterns of behaviour to find their origins, seeking reasons why close relationships feel hard, or why certain situations feel so daunting and create so much anxiety. In truth, the majority of people who seek counselling or psychotherapy have a number of areas in their life which are "just not right" leading to sadness and dissatisfaction. As you develop a deeper understanding of your self long-lasting change can take place.
At an initial consultation we will discuss your therapy needs and how you hope to benefit. Therapy can be short term and focused, or a longer term opportunity to explore your issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Masters degree in Psychodynamic Counselling. I currently work in the NHS as an adult psychotherapist and previously I have worked as a therapist with looked- after children, and students in a university setting.
Prior to training as a therapist I was an NHS General Practitioner for 9 years, and prior to that a hospital doctor.
As a therapist I have experience working with:
- relationship difficulties
- those experiencing difficulties at work
- those who have experienced emotional, physical and sexual abuse,
- those struggling with faith issues
- those who are struggling with self-harmful behaviours e.g eating difficulties, addiction, 'cutting'.
The above list is not exhaustive and I welcome your enquiries to discuss your individual therapeutic needs.
