I trained as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist at the Severnside Institute for Psychotherapy and am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council.
My approach is to provide a safe and secure setting where I can work together with you to look at how you relate to other people, yourself and your past. By working together to find a sense of the past, you can better understand your present life and discover opportunities for change.
What to Expect
Over the years of working in different places with people who have a wide range of difficulties and issues, I appreciate that for many people taking the first step towards finding help can be the hardest part and can take great courage.
You can contact me by telephone or email where we can talk about arranging an initial meeting. This initial meeting is an opportunity for you to speak about what brings you to therapy, for you to see how I work and how I might help you. After this, if you would like to continue, we can arrange a regular time for 50 minute weekly sessions. We can review how the sessions are progressing when needed.
I offer both short and long term therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I previously trained and worked as a Movement Psychotherapist (one of the Creative Arts Therapies) with students, teachers and parents in a wide range of educational settings.
As well as seeing individuals in private practice, I also work at a charity called The Harbour which provides psychotherapy for people affected by life threatening illness which has given me extensive experience of working with loss and bereavement.
