I am a fully qualified Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and I work with people, who are having psychological and emotional problems.
I provide a safe and confidential space, where you and I can work together to explore whatever concerns or difficulties you might be experiencing
These might be concerns arising from recent events, or long-standing issues that you feel are preventing you from fully engaging in your life.
people contact me when struggling with:
- Anxiety and panicky feelings
- Depression and low moods
- Angry feelings
- Self esteem and confidence issues
- Difficulties at work
- Relationship problems
- Worries about sexual matters
- Abuse (sexual/violent or psychological)
How do I work?
Your sessions with me are private. I offer a safe and non-judgemental environment where you can bring whatever is distressing you.
I will listen carefully to whatever you bring to your sessions, in order that we may try to understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
I work with you so that you can develop a greater understanding of yourself, so that you may cope better with how you feel, and how you interact with people, and the world around you.
Sessions are usually at the same time, and on the same day each week.
I offer Open-ended Psychotherapy where you and I work together to understand you at a greater depth, and over time.
I also offer Time Limited Therapy which is typically 12 to 24 sessions, where you and I might try and focus on one particular issue that you are having difficulty with.
How to begin
Please feel free to send me a brief message. All communication is strictly private and confidential.
Once you have made contact (and you and I have had an initial conversation), I recommend an initial consultation.
This session gives us a chance to meet and consider working together, and to explore whether therapy feels like the right route for you.
