We can all struggle to make sense of the world and our place in it, why we behave as we do and why it can seem so difficult to change. We are all deeply affected by our early life experiences, which continue to affect our behaviour and ability to form relationships throughout life. We need to think about and make sense of these. We all sometimes need help to manage difficulties; much as we imagine we can do this alone this is rarely, if ever possible. Psychotherapy is a way to begin a journey of change, to understand more about ourselves and our relationships with others and to break out of repetitive patterns of behaviour.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and work with individuals and couples using a psychodynamic approach. We can think together about your difficulties, your relationships and patterns of behaviour that cause you distress and make it difficult to reach your full potential. We will explore more unconscious motivations and beliefs to bring these more into awareness.

Areas of counselling I deal with
From £70.00 to £120.00
Free initial online session
I welcome enquiries from individuals and couples; I typically see people once weekly but there is some flexibility here. Starting psychotherapy is not an easy decision and I aim to create a sense of safety from the start of our work together. We will think together about your difficulties, your anxieties and your goals and work together towards these.
My typical fee is £80 per 50-minute session with individuals and £100 per 60-minute session with couples.
When I work
I have experience of working remotely with individuals and couples and can offer sessions on Zoom.
