I offer evening and daytime sessions of psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy.
Ongoing therapy provides the opportunity for us to make sense of your feelings, thoughts and behaviour and to help you develop resources to live life more fully.
In order to help you understand and change your situation we will explore:
- What is happening in your life at the moment.
- What has happened to you in the past.
- How the past might be impacting on the present.
- What you are thinking and feeling in the session.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have extensive experience over thirty years of in working with people struggling with personal issues and mental health problems. MA Hons Philosophy, 1978; CSS, 1991; Post Grad Dip Counselling, 2009; MSc Counselling, 2009.

I work with people who are often struggling with personal, relationship and/or work issues which have resulted in stress, depression, anxiety, anger, low self esteem and lack of motivation. I also work with people who are experiencing physical symptoms such as headaches or problems with eating, sleeping or self-care.

In the first session the aim is to explore your situation and what you hope to gain from therapy. If you then wish to proceed we will discuss and agree the arrangements for regular ongoing sessions.
Sessions are generally weekly and last fifty minutes.
In sessions we will explore how present feelings, thoughts and patterns of behaviour can be affected by unconscious motivations and how patterns of relationships in the past can be repeated and re-enacted in the present.
This process helps you to move on from the past, develop your capacity to change and to make new choices in your life.
Psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy is generally long-term though shorter work (generally around 20 sessions) is available if this is all that is required.
