My Approach

Therapy provides an opportunity to explore your personality and identify patterns of behaviour. It is a process that nurtures understanding and helps identify difficulties in ways of relating to others. My approach is to help facilitate that process through a collaborative therapeutic relationship. Together we work to explore troublesome, limiting beliefs and feelings that can cause depression, anxiety and destructive behaviours effecting work, relationships and general enjoyment of life.

I emphasise the importance of the connection between the current day issues and how they can be rooted in the past. Using a psychodynamic approach, rooted in Jungian psychology, I examine how early experiences can later lead to repeating patterns of thinking, feeling and behaviour that can be troubling. It is often entirely unconscious and as a result very compulsive and perplexing. By bringing awareness as well understanding to these unconscious processes it is possible to slowly gain clarity and control over them. This process has the potential to creates greater self-awareness, an improved sense of self, and mostly importantly lasting change.
