General practice in psychotherapy and counselling, located in central Cambridge and on-line. A wide range of problems can be worked with although, broadly, the route out of difficulty here is to work at depth with an eye to increasing a client's emotional range. Open-ended psychotherapy is a gradual process of experience and articulation. Counselling here is for a limited period and tends to focus on a single issue.
Both start with an initial session and the experience of being listened to intently and exclusively is a very significant experience for most people. We go into why you are looking for help and think about what the right treatment would be for you. After this I can occasionally make referrals to specialists or other clinicians.
Consulting room on a quiet lane in city centre with excellent transport links. Reliable and secure online access. In addition to rigorous training, experience and personal analysis, I have specialist training for working online and in groups.
