I pride myself on being on of the few psychologists who comfortably work to help you understand the underlying processes behind your difficulties, whether that's anxiety, depression, life-crisis, repeated patterns of unwanted behaviour, or anything in between. As a Registered Psychologist and Clinical Psychologist Registrar, I always work from an evidence-based foundation and I we'll work collaboratively to help you make sustainable and constructive changes. This is rarely a short-term process, but the evidence shows that this psychoanalytic/psychodynamic framework has long-lasting outcomes.

I apply a longer-term approach to therapy as it’s rare that a meaningful shift in the way you approach life can be developed in less than a few months. I take a psychoanalytic approach, so we’ll work into how past events or feelings have contributed to the way you now approach the world; I believe understanding the whole story is critical to creating change.

At university and in training I learned the treatment manuals. But I soon realised that trying to fit people into a box doesn't work. If you'd like a therapist that you can be open with, that can hold your distress, and, will help you understand yourself better, contact me and we can get the ball rolling.
