Type of Therapy
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy for adult individuals.
About Me & How I Work
In a confidential, open and non-judgemental environment I aim to help you explore whatever is on your mind at a pace that feels right for you.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy is an in-depth way of looking at your problems. At each step we work together to explore alternative ways to move forward in your life. To achieve this we also look back, uncovering any repetitive patterns of behaviour and understanding how they are contributing to what you feel is going wrong.
This can help with all kinds of problems from difficulties with relationships, a frustrated career, anxiety and depression, or simply feeling misunderstood and confused about who you are and what you want.
Over a number of years, I have helped people of all ages and from all walks of life. This experience was gained providing psychotherapy at WPF Therapy’s inner city clinic at London Bridge and within community mental health services in West London including at Headstrong Counselling. An earlier career as a senior executive in editing and magazine publishing gave me first-hand experience of the pressures and stress of modern-day living.
All of this means I can approach your problems and feelings, whatever they may be, with a mature, understanding and open mind.
I have in person and online practices - you can choose which suits you best. Therapy begins with a consultation where we explore what brings you to therapy now, your hopes for the future, and we get to know each other a little and see how we might work together.
Sessions take place once or twice weekly and last 50 minutes.
