About Me


Hello. I am Esther. I work as a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist with adults and groups of people, and have specialisms in palliative psychotherapy - offering people the space to adjust to life with a long-term condition and somehow to find meaning therein - and grief work.


I have also worked in university counselling services, helping individuals to make sense of both the trials and possibilities of moving into adulthood with younger people experiencing a range of emotional difficulties. 


Over the years of working closely with people, I would say that I have a theoretical orientation, which is psychodynamic, but that my approach tries to take each person as I find them. So while we might be working together on patterns, and making associations about your life in order to bring repetitive patterns and grooves into consciousness so that perhaps you become lighter and freer in your daily life, my approach is about taking the relationship between us seriously so that new forms of learning emerge out of a process of attentive collaboration; that in effect we are both experts in the room.

 I have the training and you have your life: we are in conversation with one another about where you are now and where you might want to get to; what you wish to take with you and what you wish to shed.

Training and qualifications

Registrant with the British Psychoanalytic Council, subject to the organisation's code of ethics, I have an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy and a psychoanalytically informed PhD on the relational field in dementia care settings. I often work with groups and clinically supervise staff teams in organisational settings, as a full member of APPCIOS as an organisational therapist. I lecture part-time on death, dying and bereavement, and tutor on a psychodynamic counselling course. I have also written extensively on the complexity of human need, on grief, relationships and how we come to be the full and most rounded version of ourselves.
