Whatever your reason for seeking counselling or psychotherapy, talking in a professional and confidential setting can help you uncover what lies behind your difficult feelings or recurring patterns of behaviour and explore what it means to change and how to achieve this. You can contact me via telephone or email and we can have an initial conversation to see if you would like to arrange a consultation to meet with me to discuss what is concerning you.
I am a psychodynamically informed psychotherapist and offer both individual and group based therapies.
I work part-time in the NHS and have over 22 years experience as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and Group Analyst both in the NHS and in private practice. I offer evidence-based psychological therapies for a wide range of emotional, relational and behavioural difficulties. I am trained in a range of therapeutic approaches, which means that I am able to consider a persons difficulties and work in a way that best suits their individual needs and in a safe, secure and non-judgemental environment.
Some of the issues that people come to me with include anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship issues, childhood trauma, PTSD, personality difficulties. Some come for therapy because they have lost a sense of meaning in their lives and are seeking greater fulfilment. You may have difficulty in concentrating in work or have an inability to form satisfactory relationships. Or you may repeat destructive patterns of behaviour in your relationships causing you to sabotage them when things seemed to be going well, or leading you to stay in unhealthy relationships because you fear being alone.
