I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist for couples and individuals, providing a confidential and supportive space in which to explore your thoughts and feelings.
Psychodynamic therapy endeavours to help find increased awareness of hidden dynamics unconsciously at play and explore its' influence in your relationships. By gaining insight about why certain problems repeat themselves or feel stuck, we create the ability to make different choices which improves the quality of our lives.
This process is helpful across a spectrum of needs, from serious deep seated distress, to stuck relationship problems, loss of direction or for those seeking richer fulfilment in life.
You can contact me by email or phone to arrange an initial consultation. A session is 50 minutes and it is usual to meet once a week once we agree to work together.
My private practice is located near Stroud, Gloucestershire, where I see couples and individuals and I work with families in my partnership practice in Cirencester. I am also a visiting clinician at The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships and provide couple supervision at Gloucestershire Counselling Service.
