Psychotherapy is a specific kind of conversation, meant to deepen your self-understanding so that you can be more at peace in yourself and have more satisfying relationships with others. If you have experienced complex relational trauma and live with its after-effects, you may need to understand and ameliorate its negative impact.
As society has changed it has become more and more difficult to have such conversations. I will work with you to create an environment where through talking and being heard, you can gradually come to an understanding of your life and problems. The bafflement, pain and desperation may dissipate as we work together.
You might want to work on your relationship with yourself through looking at those infuriating negative internal conversations you have as you go about your daily life. You might want to pay attention to overlooked aspects of your 'being'. Your relationships or career may not provide the satisfaction you would like and you suspect that you are missing a fundamental trick. There may be significant and recurring problematic patterns that you need help with.
Psychotherapy is a unusual sort of relationship where the focus will be on one party that is you. Within this professional relationship, you and I will work together specifically to understand the confusions of life so that change can occur. I do not offer a cure, simply my engaged presence and witnessing in our conversation. I urge you to take the chance to see if it could work for you.
I am a qualified psychotherapist as well as a psychologist and have three decades of experience helping people manage emotional distress.
I have extensive experience of working with people with psychiatric diagnoses and sexual, racial, cultural and power minorities.
I trained at Metanoia Institute and the University of East London. I qualified with a Doctorate in Integrative Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy.
I have professional registrations with the UKCP and HCPC.
My model of psychotherapy is mostly psychodynamic, with my main influences being from the Jungian and intersubjective schools.
I work online and in person.
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.
