About me

I believe we all have, in ourselves, the ability to work through our own problems; sometimes we just need the space, time and support to do it. Talking through emotional turmoil, life experiences or life changes can help you gain clarity and a better understanding of yourself.

Sometimes talking to our friends and family can seem too daunting, often we can’t help wondering if we will be taken seriously and what they might think of us. We don’t want to worry them or think nobody will be interested.

What would it be like to talk to someone who will listen without judging you or offering you advice? Someone who can be a thinking partner? As a psychodynamically trained counsellor I aim to do just that. I specialise in anxiety, depression and relationship dynamics and their impact on your emotional well being and sense of who you are. Psychodynamic counselling gives significance to the role of early experiences in shaping our psychological development. My practice provides the opportunity to explore any, or all of the issues you are concerned with in a safe secure environment.

Your initial appointment will give you an opportunity to meet with me to decide whether you will feel comfortable working with me and a possible focus for our work together. We can then arrange a time to meet each week. I offer short term therapy or long term open ended therapy. My fees are £45.00- per 50 minute session.
