I tend to work from a psychodynamic /psychoanalytic framework where your early experiences in growing up can be understood and seen through the influences they bring to bear on your current motivations and relationships.
Wondering what to do, unsure what or who can help. And how? Whatever is troubling you, whatever is getting you down you don't have to struggle alone. Talking to someone outside your circle of family, friends or even colleagues at work can be the start of a new path. A path where you can discover how you got to this place in your life. And perhaps more importantly what it is you are seeking.

I’m an experienced and fully-qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist, working with individuals aged 18 years and over offering a safe and supportive place in which to talk about your difficulties and concerns. We can begin to explore what might be troubling you, or causing you distress and suffering, or preventing you from experiencing life to the full. Together we can take time to focus on what’s important for you, to try and make sense and understand what may be happening to you and think about changes you want to make. I offer open-ended therapy with sessions once a week beginning with with an initial session or sometimes two.

My approach to Counselling is Integrative, drawing from Psychodynamic and Humanistic model.
I offer a safe and confidential space where you will have the chance to share your problems, your difficult feelings, your pain and your life story. Talking about our life honestly and openly, with an empathic and non-judgemental therapist can be a deeply healing process. Having a space where we can be fully ourselves, where we’re invited to slow down, breathe and investigate our inner world and our emotions is necessary, today, more than ever. We live busy lives and for many, it is difficult to stop and notice, most of the time, what is going on inside us. As we reconnect to our feelings and our essence there is an immediate sense

I work in an integrative way, and find psychodynamic and relational approaches in particular offer great insight into how our past can live on in the present.
Whether you have recently experienced a crisis in life, or have a more enduring sense of something feeling wrong, I offer a compassionate space for you to explore whatever issue brings you to therapy. Beginning to talk about yourself and what you are dealing with may feel new or even unnerving, so I am always mindful to work with you at your own pace. In the process of therapy many different issues may come up for you, and the space provided by therapy allows us to work through these issues together.

If you change nothing, nothing changes but it can be hard to know where to begin. I feel it starts with you being heard and valued. Having your story and your feelings witnessed and validated is extraordinarily powerful and provides the catalyst for change. You will gain a clarity and a sense of perspective as well as an understanding of why you behave in the way you do. Talking to me will feel different from talking to a friend or family member. I will offer you insights and reflections, not opinions or solutions. I am interested in you and your experiences and they matter to me, but as I'm not involved I can remain objective.

Life is messy and throws us off course. We experience pain, stress and anxiety for many reasons - life events, work issues, grief and loss, relationship difficulties, or feelings of low self-esteem that makes you feel stuck. We may simply feel adrift, struggling to find meaning and our place in the world. Confronting and solving problems can be a painful process which many of us avoid. Avoidance can result in greater pain and the inability to flourish both mentally and spiritually, but by working together to fully understand your issues and goals we can work towards a more fulfilled life.

My goal is to work with you on what you want to achieve. This usually starts with exploring you and your life to identity what we're working with. Below you will find where I have experience, what I need from you is a willingness to work together, if you feel that I'm not the right fit for you after a session, that is quite ok!

Are you constantly experiencing the breakdown of relationships leaving you feeling distressed, bewildered, let down and perhaps even angry with yourself for repeating these patterns? It can be devastating to keep finding ourselves stuck in this way. Whether in intimate relationships, family dynamics, friendships or work situations, I can help you explore these issues, in the hope of understanding their origins and gradually healing yourself, thus developing the possibility of healthier relationships with others. Maybe you have experienced some of the above and are also in the Creative/Performing Arts Community or Film/ Media.

You might be struggling with something difficult in the here and now, such as the loss of a loved one, or the breakdown of a relationship. Or perhaps you’re aware of vague, underlying feelings of sadness, anxiety or anger. Maybe you feel trapped in a cycle of repeated disappointments with partners, friends and careers and don’t know why. Whether you know what the problem is, or even if you don’t, therapy can help. It’s an opportunity to explore yourself; to examine feelings, thoughts and motivations and gain understanding - the first step towards navigating a different, happier course.

I believe my strongest quality as a therapist is to make you feel accepted, understood, and most of all safe. I believe that only when we feel truly safe, free of judgment and condemnation can we trust, and trust is the most prized of all human emotions. My approach will enable you to be fully involved in every step of the therapy process and to feel truly engaged in every step you take towards your happiness. I am very clear in explaining to my clients what I offer and how I work.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Bath, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
