Decision to meet with a Psychologist or to engage in psychotherapy may not be an easy one. It may evoke intense feelings, doubts or worries. I hope that the information you can find here will support your decision and help you to initiate positive changes in your life.
I am a Practitioner Psychologist and a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist with over 15 years of experience working therapeutically with people struggling with a wide range of psychological problems. I offer therapy for clients going through personal crisis, experiencing relationship difficulties or career and work related concerns. I also support clients with issues around depression, anxiety, personality difficulties and other mental health problems.
I offer psychological formulation and short-term therapy deriving from various psychological approaches including CBT, Psychodynamic and Integrative models. My way of working is emphatic, flexible and receptive to your individual needs.
My extensive training at The Tavistock and Portman NHS Clinic additionally enables me to offer a long-term, intensive psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy. This therapy focuses on unconscious meaning of the issues you experience. It seeks to increase your awareness of your inner world, to give you more freedom and choices in life. It will help you to develop new, resilient ways of being and more satisfying relationships you have with others and yourself.
I provide safe, non-judgmental and confidential space where you will feel encouraged to explore and work through your difficulties. I am happy to be contacted to discuss what concerns you and whether I can be of help.
