Hello and welcome. My name is Roselyne Savidge and I am a qualified Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist. I am a registered member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and follow their code of ethics.
Life can be challenging and although we are often able to navigate through these difficult times unaided, there may come a point when we need a little extra help and support. I offer a safe, caring and confidential space in which you can explore what is causing you distress.
I am passionate about my work and my aim is to help you to make sense of your difficulties, whether emotional or relational, by helping you become aware of hidden aspects of your personality and making links between past experiences and present thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviour.
The wonderful thing about being human is that we are all different. I therefore provide a therapeutic intervention tailored to your individual needs, drawing on my own personal experience as well as on my extensive training and continuous professional development.
Therapy can be a step towards change and a more rewarding and fulfilling life.
A trusting and respectful relationship between you and your therapist is at the heart of a successful therapy. If you would like to discuss what is going on for you and find out if you feel we could work together, please contact me by phone or email.
