About me

I practise psychodynamic psychotherapy on an individual, weekly basis. I work on a time-limited or open-ended basis and offer sessions during the day or evening.
We would have an initial meeting to explore your issues and decide whether psychodynamic therapy is right for you. We would meet on a regular weekly basis. My fees are £60 for a 50 minute session. I can offer early morning appointments.

Emotional crises can arise in many ways. It could be a relationship break-up, loss and bereavement, illness or trauma. Difficulties could be long-standing such as a lack of vitality or an inexplicable discomfort with yourself. Are there repeating patterns in your experiences including your relationships? Is your life a struggle in a way you do not understand?

There are many symptoms of depression. It is not just a question of feeling low. It can be ongoing irritability, stress, sense of futility, ambivalence and listlessness. Do you feel misunderstood or overwhelmed?

You may feel that personal and professional relationships are beyond your "comfort zone". A greater understanding of your inner world will enable you to change these relationships for the better.
