I am an experienced advanced qualified psychodynamic counsellor . My client base rages from adolescents through to the older adult . My work is client led and I draw upon different modalities to best suit each persons individual journey.
I offer a safe , ethical and professional environment whereby present day life situations can be thought about in relation to their associated anxieties.
I draw upon my continued professional training in , CBT, attachment theory trauma and other models to help explore what as yet may not be understood or known but may be experienced personally as confusing and overwhelming . With the safety and containment of the counselling space, a way which suits individual needs can start to be thought about and understood.
With a psychodynamic approach, present day life situations and patterns can start to be thought about in relation to how earlier life experiences may have woven an unconscious thread which informs and influences present day action and reactions.
With care and guidance, time, patience and practice i will help to facilitate fluidity of thought so as a mental thinking space can start to be made, self -awareness can develop and a sense of resilience can be cultivated so as to help meet life’s different challenges .
