I am a qualified HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist. I have been offering psychological therapy to adults with mental health problems such as depression and anxiety for over 20 years. I am trained in a range of therapeutic approaches, but the main approach that I offer is psychodynamic psychotherapy. I offer both short and longer term therapy. I am also an accredited Dynamic Interpersonal Therapist (DIT) practitioner and supervisor.
I work with people presenting with a range of difficulties, for example problems with low self-esteem, low mood, depression and anxiety. Psychodynamic therapy is often helpful for people with difficulties in relationships, including problems in how they relate to themselves and others.
I have worked in the NHS for over 20 years and am currently employed as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Lead for a service which offers treatment for people with common mental health problems.
My view of psychological therapy is that it provides an opportunity for people to gain understanding of how they relate to themselves and others and how they may wish to change things for themselves. Most people who undertake psychodynamic psychotherapy find that changes they are able to make during the course of therapy, continue to be maintained and can be built upon after therapy ends.
