About me

I offer psychodynamic counselling and psychoanalytic psychotherapy to individuals experiencing distress, discomfort or unhappiness in their lives. My practice is in the Castle Road area close to Russell Park.

Through working together in a quiet place where you will be listened to and not judged, I aim to help you get a better understanding of what is going on for you, and where and how this may have originated. This helps you to develop choices about how you move forward which may not feel available to you at the moment.

Our first meeting, which lasts about an hour, is for you to get a sense of whether you feel you can work with me, and for me to get a sense of whether I think psychotherapy can be helpful for you. You are not committed to entering into regular therapy with me at this point and I will encourage you to take some time to think about whether this would be a helpful step for you to take.
