My Approach

Entering into psychoanalysis entails a crossing of a threshold, and beginning a process of taking up a new kind of relation to oneself and one’s problems. Contemporary life poses particular challenges to us all: analysis presents us with an opportunity to speak in the presence of an Other about the specificity of the conditions of one’s life. In the context of an analysis, speech takes on new and sometimes strange dimensions - what we find ourselves saying surprises us as hidden thoughts unravel. This can mean attending to fleeting dreams and fantasies, which usually get lost in the business of everyday life. Often we discover the multitude of ways in which we are lived by desires that we can’t always understand.

About Me

I offer psychoanalysis in central Exeter for people who are looking for a space to speak. I have been in practice for over a decade, and am a registered member of UKCP an accredited and registered member of BACP. My original training was a Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology, which enabled me to work as a psychotherapist and psychologist in the NHS, in mental health and more specialist services. I subsequently completed a full clinical training with The Society for Social and Critical Psychoanalysis, of which I am now a member.

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.

While I see people struggling with various difficulties in their lives, one of my areas of special interest is gender and sexuality. For several years I was employed in an NHS Gender Identity Clinic, and in my time there I worked with hundreds of trans, non-binary, and de-transitioning people. Questions of identity and desire arise for all of us in analysis, and often require careful working through. I’m alive to the complex ways in which gender and sexuality intersect with other aspects of our identities, such as race and class, and I offer a non-pathologising space to explore what it means to take up a particular place in the world. Societal norms that define how we should live our gender and sexuality can prove difficult to navigate for all of us.
