Psychodynamic Psychotherapist. BPC.

About me

I offer open-ended psychodynamic/ psychoanalytic therapy either online or in person in a comfortable private setting. You may be feeling suicidal, depressed or  anxious and be struggling to understand what underlies your feelings.

This kind of therapy is based on the idea that what we experience as a conscious difficulty in the present may point to an unconscious problem with roots in the past. Psychotherapy will give you a space in which we can think about what you are struggling with.

I have many years experience both in the NHS and privately and would be happy to help you decide whether this type of work is what would help you most at this time.

Call me or send an email if you would like to explore further. I usually suggest meeting for an initial consultation to give you time to explain what you are looking for and for us to think about whether I am the right person at this time.

I am based in central Wokingham. I can see people once, twice or three times a week.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the Tavistock Clinic in London and am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). I am fully subscribed to their code of ethics. More information is available on my website:
