About me

Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy offers a space in which to express difficult thoughts and feelings through talking freely about families, fantasies, ideas, dreams and any other material that you bring. The way that I work allows space for speaking openly and examining the layers of meaning that emerge from this practice of free speech. In this approach there is an emphasis on listening to people rather than offering standard advice or instructions. Some talking therapies focus on alleviating symptoms as quickly as possible however the psychodynamic approach invites people to think more deeply about the causes of their distress and develop their own way through.

I began my training in 2009 and have spent the last ten years exploring influences and approaches and refining my practice. During this time I have worked in the NHS as well as voluntary sector organisations, and have gained specialist clinical experience in the following areas: substance misuse, acute mental health diagnosis (including psychosis, borderline personality disorder and eating disorders) and sexual abuse trauma based therapy. My most recent post graduate training in Psychodynamic Practice was at the University of Oxford.
