I strive to offer a safe psychological space in which the spoken word is the starting place for exploring ourselves. Even when we don't know where to start or quite what the problems might be, exactly. Psychotherapy gives us the opportunity to encounter and pay attention to ourselves, in all our wonderful complexity and contradiction, and to begin to deepen and enrich our connection to our internal worlds and those of others. Becoming more ourselves through therapy is a gift to ourselves, and to those around us, helping us to learn more of who we are and our psychological' mental health and vulnerabilities, and I try to offer the relational space in which such exploration can be possible.
I am currently working online, with intention to return to in-person in the near future. I can offer therapy to people looking for individual therapy, and am in the process of developing a Group Analytic Psychotherapy group.
My usual fee for individual psychotherapy is £75 per session, though there may be some consideration of reduced fees, depending on circumstances.
I am currently working in-person and online, and am available for new clients. I am contactable on 0781 247 1427 and through firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am a group analyst working in an NHS outpatient Psychotherapy service, including as Clinical Lead in the Rotunda Day Democratic Therapeutic Community. I am also a member of the staff team at Group Analysis North, as a Training Supervisor and Seminar Leader on the Qualifying Course. As a group analyst, I am interested in the power of psychotherapy in pursuit of enriching our psychological lives, in deepening and strengthening our relational ties, and to enhance personal and interpersonal insight and functioning. Its important to me that insight and change can be possible and achieved through conversation and connection, the possibility to explore ourselves and others through putting our thoughts and feelings into words and hearing and experiencing the responses of others. I am also interested in the Psychodynamic Interpersonal Therapy model (aka Conversational Model), and am a qualified practitioner of EMDR for trauma. As a Clinical Supervisor, I work in NHS as well as a Training Supervisor on the Qualifying Course at Group Analysis North, as well as with individual clinicians and other agencies and staff groups in the Education, Health and Justice sectors.
In private practice, I offer long or short term individual therapy in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and am available for people suffering with complex traumas, sexual or relationship difficulties, identity problems, and psychological distress of all kinds.
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.
