About me

I am a 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
  • Addictions
  • Abuse (sexual/violent or psychological)
  • Trauma

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. We will explore what is causing you distress with a view to understanding your emotional and psychological difficulties.

Sessions

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.

How to begin

Please feel free to send me a brief message. All communication is strictly private and confidential.

Once you have made contact 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.
