About me

I am committed to a confidential, non-judgemental and respectful approach, showing empathy, competence and sincerity whilst supporting you in finding your way through life changes.

Psychodynamic counselling helps people review emotions, thoughts, early-life experiences, and their present-day problems to identify patterns they have developed over time. Recognising recurring patterns helps people see the ways in which they avoid distress or develop defence mechanisms as a way of coping so that they can take steps to change these patterns.

Psychodynamic Counselling works by bringing the unconscious thoughts and feelings to the surface. There is an emphasis on the influence of the past, and on recurring patterns of relationships. A difficult and painful situation in the present may have its roots in the past but the individual may not be aware of the connection.

During our counselling sessions we may consider your current difficulties in the context of past influences and experiences, exploring your childhood, significant relationships, beliefs and responses. You may be able to recognise more choices available to you in order to make changes now and in the future.

I have gained my counselling experience practicing in local community organisations and I also work closely with the addiction support services in Warwickshire.

I also have a professional and personal interest in addiction, including drugs, alcohol and gambling.
