My Approach

I will provide a safe confidential space and will speak with you in an open and straightforward way, so that together we can explore what your difficulties are and work to find the right mixture of support and challenge.

About Me

I am an experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist registered with The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, (UKCP) and The Universities Psychotherapy and Counselling Association. (UPCA).

Clients seek help from me for many reasons, from feeling that life is literally unbearable to a vague sense of unease. Psychotherapy is not an academic exercise and often involves going into and experiencing powerful feelings with and sometimes in relation to your therapist. I will support and contain you in this process. It's hard to get a flavour of this without trying it and different therapists will work for different people. You are very welcome to meet with me to see if you think I would be a good therapist for you.

I work with a wide range of people and presentations including;
anxiety and depression,
unmanageable feelings; sadness, fear, anger,
Loss or separation,
Relationship issues, Identity, Sexual conflicts,

I initially trained as an Integrative therapist with Mindfulness based approach and then went on to complete a Masters in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy at the University of Brighton. I am influenced by a wide range of Psychoanalytic ideas and thinking and have undergone intensive Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and supervision.

  • Individuals

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

Anxiety is the other most common presenting issue in therapy and again it can be due to a myriad of causes sometimes known, sometimes not. It can be a debilitating condition preventing life being engaged with and incredibly overwhelming and frustrating. I will work sensitively and insightfully with you to explore and process the feelings tab the root of the anxiety.
Depression is one of the most common 'illnesses', with so many possible causes, sometimes the cause isn't even apparent. Sometimes it is about painful events form the past have yet to be 'worked through', sometimes it is about hidden complexes that feel too much to face and sometimes it is about traumatic life events that feel simply unbearable. I will seek to work collaboratively with you to help you do the often painful work in not just managing this but engaging with it in a way that can ultimately resolve these issues.
Identity can relate to so many factors, sexuality, class, family roles -past and present and can be a source of conflict and confusion. Psychotherapy can sometimes provide the one space where you can safely explore how and who you feel you really are.
Relationship difficulties and separations can be utterly devastating, and it can take time and much processing of pain to move through and out to new beginnings. My goal will be be to help you sort through this so that you can after time move on with things.
I am a qualified Supervisor, with a Diploma in Supervision from the SAP.
