Time does not always heal all wounds and there are often occasions in our lives when the reverberations of tragedy, loss and trauma may leave us feeling frozen, and stuck. How then do we work through and restore what is damaged and injured? Psychodynamic therapy is a form of therapy that is rooted within psychoanalysis. The aim of Psychodynamic therapy, as it is within Psychoanalysis is to uncover the specific meaning of our experience and its impact and influence upon our life in general. There are times in our lives when we might feel that something feels unresolved or there remains an unease around an aspect of our life that requires attention and revisiting.
I work from my home in St Albans as well as in Cambridge. I work with adults and adolescents and have clinical experience in the treatment of:
as well as Existential Themes of Meaning and Transiency.
I offer short-term therapy which might last from 6 to 12 sessions as well as longer term therapy which might continue for several months or years.
During a first session, I like to explore with you what has brought you to counselling and what you are looking and hoping to gain from this process. I think of this time as an important opportunity for you to reflect on whether you feel I am the right counsellor for you.
