BA, MA, Dip. Analytic Psychotherapy

About me

I am an analytic psychotherapist who works with short term and long term therapy to better help the client reach what they want to achieve. I am experienced working in private practice and within the NHS with a variety of age groups and client needs. I provide a safe space to explore whatever issues the client feels need addressing in a non-judgemental and supportive environment.

The therapy goals of the client are addressed in the sessions, although these can change as therapy progresses. Dealing with current issues, becoming less stuck in past patterns of behaviour that are unhelpful and developing ones potential and feeling more "at ease" with oneself are also therapy goals.

Call me to see if I can help you. An initial conversation will help establish if you feel comfortable with me before beginning therapy.
