About me

I have been working full-time as a psychotherapist since 2002 and have over 10,000 + clinical hours of experience. I offer not only a huge depth of experience as a therapist in both the NHS and private practice but, as I have an unusual dual accreditation in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Humanistic & Integrative Psychotherapy, I am uniquely placed to offer a flexible and powerful approach to psychotherapy. I now also incorporate EMDR and Schema Therapy into my work.

I use an integrative approach to psychotherapy based on my training in a number of different models. This approach is underpinned by a psychoanalytic understanding of human development, motivation and behaviour. Although research has overwhelmingly proven that past attachments styles shape our identity, the type of therapy I offer concentrates on what is happening for the client now in their lives and/or how they react in the therapy itself, with a view to altering, mostly in small subtle ways, aspects of who they are. Some of the issues I currently work with include:

• emotional numbness & feelings of emptiness
• lack of a secure identity & search for meaning in life
• trauma (including physical and sexual abuse)
• OCD and obsessional thinking
• relationship difficulties
• grief
• anger
• anxiety
• depression

£70 per session. This is a guide price. I may charge more or less depending on your income. It is more important to establish if we can work together and the research in this area demonstrates that client/patient fit is one of the key ingredients in a successful therapy.
