About me

I am an experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist working in Nottingham. I work with individuals who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma and general life concerns.

I specialise in trauma, sexual trauma, narcissistic behaviour, addiction, anxiety, depression, general low mood and disordered eating..

I work either on a short term or open ended basis and I offer an initial consultation with no further obligation.

My consulting room is conveniently situated in Basford with parking and a bus stop across the road. The setting is therapeutically set to offer a relaxing space for thought, reflection and understanding.

With online counselling you can access therapy from the comfort of your home especially where travelling may be difficult and from anywhere in the world.

Training, qualifications & experience

I commenced my clinical training at WPF with a certificate in Counselling and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I then went on to complete a BA Hons in Integrative Counselling and most recently I hold a Masters in psychoanalytic psychotherapy from The Tavistock and Portman NHS

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a highly effective psychological treatment that improves the lives of many people.

There are times in all our lives when our emotions feel overwhelming, and we can even become unwell with a mental health problem. Having psychodynamic therapy can help us to better understand ourselves and to work through our difficulties.

Psychodynamic treatment consists of meeting with an psychotherapist on a regular basis for sessions that last fifty minutes. This stable, confidential structure gives you and your therapist the chance to connect with and understand what is happening at a deeper level. By being so generous with time, attention and thought, psychodynamic treatment can bring about authentic and lasting change, even when working with substantial emotional difficulties.

At the heart of psychoanalysis is the recognition that our complex and often unconscious emotional life is a fundamental part of being human. Sometimes we don’t understand the beliefs and fears that shape our way of looking at and living in the world, as they have become ingrained and automatic. We can find ourselves repeating destructive behaviours, feeling stuck in unhappy relationships and stunting our emotional, creative and professional development.

Psychodynamic therapy can significantly diminish psychological suffering and improve our health and wellbeing, opening up our capacity for greater fulfilment in life.
