47 Cheap Street
I am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor with a practice in central Newbury, Berkshire. I work with individual clients in regular, weekly sessions on a one-to-one basis. I understand that at times it can feel hard to talk to family or friends and when instead it is helpful to talk to a professional about what is on your mind. Whatever your reasons for coming to counselling, I can offer you a safe, confidential space where you will not be judged.
How I work
My psychodynamic training means that in addition to thinking with you about what might be troubling you in the present, I can help you explore possible underlying reasons for difficulties. Sometimes we unintentionally repeat patterns which can make things hard, for example in our relationships or at work.
I believe that having greater insight into ourselves offers the chance to do things differently and avoid falling into patterns of behaviour that might not be beneficial. Counselling offers immediate support when you are finding things hard and also the possibility of long lasting change.
Getting in touch
You can give me a call, email or get in touch through my website.
I will get back to you within 24 hours and we can arrange a time to meet for a first session. This will be an opportunity for you to tell me about your reasons for seeking counselling and for us to think about how we might work together.
I work at a practice in the centre of Newbury which is a few minutes walk from the train station and has plenty of parking close by. The clinic has three consulting rooms which are all comfortable, quiet and private. There is also a waiting area if you arrive early.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Counselling following four years of training accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and validated by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).
I also undertake regular workshops and professional supervision.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (membership no. 827936) and follow the ethical guidelines of this professional body.
I have worked in the voluntary sector, for charitable organisations and in private practice, seeing clients in both long and short term relationships. I work with people aged 18 and over and have experience with a wide range of individuals from young adults through to elderly clients.
