I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist offering psychotherapy either online or, in due course, in-person to adults on either a short or long-term basis. I provide a confidential space where clients feel safe to voice their thoughts and concerns; a space to explore areas of life that may need to be reshaped or changed. Amongst areas, I can help with are; anxiety, depression, relationship issues, lack of self-confidence, grief, loss, trauma and addiction recovery.
Sessions are 50 minutes long and take place each week.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a post-graduate diploma in psychotherapy and counselling from WPF therapy. I have a foundation certificate in couples counselling from Tavistock Relationships. I also have an interest in the work of C G Jung. My voluntary work involves supporting those who have experienced grief, trauma and loss.
