I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor who works with adults of all ages.
There are times in life when changes in circumstances or relationships make it hard to find a way through alone. We might have family or friends to whom we can turn for support, but sometimes that isn't enough.
Would you like help from a professional - someone who is well trained, who is there for you, and able to devote time and skill to your unique situation? As someone who is not involved in the dynamics of your family or friendship groups, I can offer you nonjudgmental support.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals who come to me for a wide variety of reasons. I provide a confidential place to talk and to explore emotions, to take time to think about who you are and what you might want from life. I will help you to understand better what is contributing to your current situation, so that you can make the changes you desire, however big or small.
I have experience of working with people from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities on issues such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, low self-esteem, career dilemmas, relationship issues and addiction. Of course, a list such as this might suggest that issues present themselves clearly and individually, whereas in reality it often is a complex web of experiences, that we can work through together. As well as working in private practice, I have worked in the NHS.
After an initial consultation most clients attend a once weekly, fifty minute session, though twice weekly sessions can be arranged if required.
