Hello, I am an experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor. I offer online video (Zoom, Skype and WhatsApp Video), telephone and when possible face-to-face psychotherapy. I have a particular interest in building confidence and emotional resilience. I also specialise in reducing anxiety, treating depression and understanding the effects of psychological trauma.
My aim is to help you make sense of your world and live a more satisfying life.
I achieve this by helping you to become more aware of your experiences, beliefs and behaviours from the past and reveal how they might be affecting your thoughts, behaviours and experiences in the present. The insight gained from greater self-awareness can often improve relationships, alleviate emotional suffering and lead to long-lasting, positive change.
When considering psychotherapy it is a good idea to meet once or twice to get a sense of the issues which are troubling you. Each consultation will give you the chance to experience what psychotherapy is like and to fully explore whether therapy is right for you.
I offer one off consultations, short term and open ended psychotherapy. I work with adults, from adolescents to seniors, and welcome enquiries from people of any gender, ethnicity or background.
Training and qualifications
I first started counselling over 20 years ago at Childline. I then went on to train, qualify and practise as a psychodynamic psychotherapist at WPF Therapy.
I am a registered member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a professional member of the Foundation of Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC). I abide by their codes of ethical standards and confidentiality.
My standard fee is £80 per session. Discounted rates available upon request.
Therapy sessions last 50 minutes and are held at the same time each week.
