About Me

It’s normal that someone who is starting therapy can feel both excited and anxious. The process of finding a therapist with whom you feel sufficiently comfortable to begin to develop a trusting relationship, can also feel quite daunting. In my experience, both in the NHS and in private practice, it’s important to take time to think about the range of difficulties that someone is facing and to keep these in mind and in focus while exploring the reasons for these difficulties. One of the real benefits of psychoanalytic therapy comes from having a greater awareness of oneself, which helps enormously with confidence and self-worth. These are benefits that endure over time and are felt in all aspects of your life; at work, at home, in your closest relationships.

The therapy I offer is generally open ended, although I do offer some time-limited sessions. 

I work with adults and older adolescents who are struggling with aspects of their daily lives, however they manifest: for example, feeling stressed at work, not being able to concentrate, have relationships that break down, sexual problems. Sometimes people aren’t quite sure how to describe how they feel or what they are struggling with, for example, they might feel empty or numb or full up. 

I have seen people benefit enormously from therapy and I wish you well in your search today.

I’d be happy to think with you about my service, to see if psychoanalytic psychotherapy will help you, to help you make a decision about beginning. Please do get in touch.
