about me
I am a fully qualified, experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist offering a warm and caring environment.
I believe counselling is about being listened to in a non-judgmental and respectful manner. It is an opportunity to think about your problems together, to make sense of what is happening with an aim for personal growth. Understanding these will help you develop your own choices and way forward. I offer privacy in a comfortable setting.

choosing a counsellor
Choosing a counsellor is very personal and can feel rather daunting. If you would like to meet for a consultation, we can think together about what is best for you without obligation.
Whether you are experiencing physical symptoms such as anxiety and panic attacks or feeling low and miserable, you need a space to talk. Perhaps you just don't know what is wrong at present, but something isn't quite right?
counsellor is counselling for me?
If you are anxious, panicky or feeling depressed, counselling can help. I have experience working with:

Personal problems such as anxiety, panic, anger management, eating disorders, phobias, low self-esteem, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), stress, depression.
Relationship and family issues such as abuse, sexual problems, separation and divorce, post-natal depression, termination, miscarriage, bereavement.

what is psychodymanic counselling?
Psychodynamic therapy helps you understand how your current feelings and behaviour are shaped by your past experiences.
The relationship with your therapist is key to this therapeutic approach. Having an accepting and trusting relationship with them encourages you to talk freely and openly about topics like your childhood and your relationship with your parents, family members, friends etc. This can help you understand what you're feeling now, why you behave in a certain way and how this affects your relationships.

how long does it last?
therapy room I offer short-term focused work to deal with a specific problem (12 weeks). Some people decide they want to make deeper changes in their lives and continue in longer term work. The nature of this commitment will depend but something we would talk about together. The sessions are for 50 minutes, same day and time, either once or twice a week.

I have my own private practice and I work part time. I am able to offer in person and online sessions.
