Experienced psychotherapist working with adults in once weekly psychotherapy.
I have worked in voluntary, clinical and private practice.
I aim to support individuals to overcome barriers that inhibit their emotional growth, such as negative, destructive and compulsive behaviours. Also those who may be experiencing relationship problems, difficulties managing emotional upheaval, anxiety and depression.
The process of psychotherapy can help us understand how symptoms are formed and develop into psychological problems and offers an opportunity to make changes to live a more healthy and happy life.
I have a particular interest in the affect of childhood experience on psychological development and work with an analytic approach to therapy alongside creative models such as the exploration of dreams.
My approach is predominantly Psychodynamic but I am also able to integrate CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Mindfulness which can help diffuse negativity, aggression and turbulent emotions.
