As a BACP registered psychodynamic counsellor, I am able to offer you a safe and secure environment in which you can tell your story and to be attended to with care and curiosity. My work with individuals over the last six years has involved various themes including trauma, anxiety and panic disorders. We will develop our relationship in order to build trust so that you may bring all your thoughts and feelings to be listened to without fear of judgement. This can provide the space to reflect on your life experience and make meaning for yourself.
When working with couples I promote thinking together about struggles and concerns you may have in your relationship promoting dialogue in a safe and comfortable space. Sessions last for one hour.
I am able to offer both short term and open ended counselling when working with individuals and couples.
