Training and Experience
I work as a psychodynamic counsellor and psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice. I trained at the British Psychotherapy Foundation and at the University of London. I have experience of working with abuse, anxiety, bereavement and loss, trauma, depression, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, work-related issues, sexuality, traumatic experiences and lack of direction in life.
I practise psychoanalytic psychotherapy, which means that I work in a way which explores what lies beneath our actions and repetitive patterns of behaviour, how the past affects the present; our relationships, our work and our feelings. I have also trained in CBT for more practical interventions to help anxiety, depression, addictions and phobias.
We would develop a secure and meaningful professional relationship, through which problems can be identified and thought about in the privacy of regular, reliable sessions.
I am a member of the British Psychoanalytic Council and work to the Council's Code of Ethics.
About our work together
Whatever is on your mind can be brought to the session and talked about. This could be feelings, thoughts, memories or dreams. I will listen and try to help you make sense of how you feel. As our relationship develops, you will discover new insights which can lead to finding different ways of dealing with the problems and feelings that you had been struggling with - often for many years.
I can offer appointments both during the day and in the evening, depending upon spaces available at the time. For further information or to book an initial consultation, please contact me using the phone numbers or the email link in the left hand corner below.
We will have a consultation before starting, to look at how we might work together and decide if counselling would be beneficial for you. There is no commitment to ongoing sessions at this stage.
How much will it cost?
The initial consultation and sessions will cost between £45 and £75, depending on the time of the session, and your personal circumstances. Sessions can be arranged for once or twice a week.
