Amanda DormonPsychodynamic psychotherapist
I trained as a psychodynamic individual and couple counsellor and psychotherapist at Tavistock Relationships, recognised nationally and internationally as a leading authority on couple relationships.
I specialise in open-ended therapy that will allow you to reflect on past experiences to make sense of the present. Sessions also focus on seeking to understand unconscious thoughts and feelings and bringing these into consciousness.
Couples often come to see me at a crucial turning point in their relationship, following the birth of a child, after an affair, or when communication feels like it has broken down. I also see individuals affected by the same issues, plus anxiety and grief, loss, depression or a sense that life may not have turned out the way they would have hoped.
Whatever you’re struggling with, having a non-judgmental other, who is able to think when thinking can often feel impossible, can bring relief and a feeling of being understood, perhaps for the very first time.
OnlineI also provide my services online.
