I am an experienced Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist working in both Private and Public sectors.
Psychotherapy can be of help to those who may experience an underlying sense of sadness, frustration or dissatisfaction with respect to themselves, relationships and to work. Psychotherapy is also suitable for those who want to understand themselves on a deeper level and to develop their capacities and strengths to manage themselves and their own particular challenges and difficulties.
Such difficulties may be experienced in personal relationships, or other life adjustments such as illness, bereavement and other forms of loss. Sometimes emotional problems may be linked to physical symptoms, as anxiety may present itself in whole variety of ways.
Psychoanalytic psychotherapy can help people to discover and explore the more hidden or unconscious aspects of how they relate to others and themselves. This work takes place in a reliable and confidential setting in which the therapist tries to help each person to reach a fuller understanding of their own particular difficulties, by listening attentively and making helpful observations that may bring unhelpful repeating patterns to light. This process can help to free the person up to find new ways of dealing with emotional distress and difficulty in making decisions.
Following an initial short telephone discussion about your particular needs, we may then arrange to meet for an assessment appointment in which I can determine more clearly if the Psychotherapy service that I offer would be of likely help to you. Sometimes a shorter follow up session is offered so there is time to reflect on what would be the best plan going forward.
Sessions are provided regularly and frequently each week in order to give appropriate support and continuity for the work to take place. This may involve one to four 50 minute sessions per week over a period of months or years depending on the person and the issues being worked with. Generally psychoanalytic psychotherapy is 'opened ended', to allow for a deeper level of change to be achieved. All of this would be discussed within the initial consultation.
