I am a BPC registered psychodynamic psychotherapist in private practice in Lee, South East London. I provide once-weekly individual psychodynamic therapy and counselling for adults. I also provide more frequent, low-cost psychoanalytic psychotherapy, in collaboration with WPF Therapy.
I work from a peaceful consulting room and offer an impartial, safe space for you to explore experiences, thoughts, feelings, memories and losses that may be difficult for you to manage or to overcome, or which may be getting in the way of you feeling more fully alive.
If you are interested in exploring what it might be like to work with me as your therapist please get in touch by messaging me through this site or calling me on the number provided. We can arrange an initial session to find out whether the therapy and counselling I offer would be useful to you.
Sometimes life can be challenging, and it can be hard to overcome emotional difficulties. Speaking to someone impartial and professionally trained can help you to understand and work through a range of difficulties in order to move forward, more fully and alive, in life.
Some of the reasons for therapy
People seek therapy for many reasons, including difficulties with anxiety or depression, or following a painful loss or a bereavement, or for wanting to understand patterns of behaviour that seem hard to break. Sometimes the reason might be a challenging relationship or a vague sense of something not being quite right. At other times there may be no specific problem other than an awareness that life is lacking meaning or a sense of direction.
How I work
As a psychodynamic therapist, I help my clients to express themselves as freely as possible to make sense of the issues that led them to seek out therapy. I listen carefully but also talk with my clients in a way that helps them to explore and make sense of thoughts and feelings which may feel, perhaps, painfully overwhelming or out of their reach. In this process we work together and consider both the presenting symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, as well as their possible underlying causes. In my experience, therapy is a thought-provoking, rewarding process which can lead to a real improvement in emotional wellbeing and confidence, and relief from emotional suffering.
If you would like more information, or to arrange an initial meeting to talk about your situation, feel free to contact me.
