I am an experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor and work with both individuals and groups.
It could be you have recently hit a tough time in your life and need a space to make sense of it. It might be that a relationship has become difficult; with your partner, at work with colleagues, with your children or close family members. You may be suffering symptoms of anxiety and depression and you are finding it harder to function in daily life. It may be that you are transitioning from one stage to another in your life; leaving home, starting a family or approaching retirement and you need somewhere to work through some of the feelings of anxiety, fear and uncertainty that such a change can bring.

I tend to work with a psychodynamic approach, which means that I will encourage you to explore your psychological life, how you relate to others and how you have experienced others throughout your life.
I'm a registered therapist with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) who offers long and short-term therapy. Sometimes we can find ourselves in the midst of a crisis, unsure of who or where to turn to. Maybe you’ve found yourself struggling with an anxiety or worry that has come to dominate your life, or you’ve experienced a distressing incident, loss or bereavement that has become overwhelming. Whatever the challenge is to your sense of safety, happiness and peace, I provide a containing and open space for you to explore yourself without judgment and to begin to meet the challenges in your life.

I specialise in psychodynamic counselling but have experience working with more skills based approaches like CBT.
I believe the first steps towards counselling can be a very daunting prospect. If you are feeling anxious and reluctant about taking that step. I am here to help make the process an easy one. I have worked with many issues such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, stress, anger, bullying, to name a few. Together we can help to break negative cycles of behaviour or thought patterns. Helping to regain control of your life. Whilst creating a greater understanding as to why this might be occurring. If you find it difficult to talk, then together, we can help to find the words that may be unspeakable.

I am an experienced BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor, currently based in Phoenix Therapy Practice. I believe that no issue is too small nor too great to bring to therapy – if it causes you pain, you will benefit from opening up about it in the long run. I believe everyone’s internal world needs to be approached with curiosity and openness. My approach is rooted in traditional psychoanalysis but progressive in the way I practice it. It is suitable for adults of all ages and backgrounds and also LGBTQ/kink and poly-friendly.

My Integrative Diploma qualification offered in-depth training in multiple approaches; Person Centred Therapy, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Psychodynamic and Solution Focussed Therapy.
I am a warm and empathic qualified Integrative Psychotherapist (BACP registered), offering clients a welcoming space to explore difficult feelings without judgement, and with the aim to bring about positive change, through counselling. Our therapeutic relationship will be honest, and most importantly, equal. I will not be an expert on you, telling you what you should do, and neither will I be a passive counsellor who remains distanced. Instead, I will walk alongside you, offering empathy, insight and unconditional positive regard.

My approach to therapy is concerned with individual growth and the relational needs of a person: the self, others we care about - and the things we value and need. I aim to assist you person in becoming an authentic and self accepting individual, who can practice choice over whatever life may throw, with kindness, heart and courage. I work chiefly from a Humanistic/Person Centred base with you as the starting point. I am Integrated therapist, which means, I can incorporate other modes of therapy to so suit client needs: from Psychodynamic , Relational to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and clinical supervisor with over 15 years experience of working with a broad range of clients including those experiencing low mood, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and emotional instability. I have a particular interest in attachment and relational trauma and the way this impacts how we understand our own thoughts, feelings and experiences as well as our capacity to form relationships with others (partners, friends, children, colleagues).

I hold a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Psychodynamic Counselling & Psychotherapy, and I am experienced in working with individuals to address the challenges they face.
Thank you for stopping by. Seeking help can be challenging; there is the worry if the therapist is the right person for you. If you are strong enough to take a look at what is troubling you, or what may come up as you start to think about things beyond the immediate problem. I offer a space where you can take time to unpack what you have held on to for a while. Or what you may have been surprised by recently. Perhaps your dealing with something that has simply left you feeling overwhelmed? In any case, it may come as no surprise to you, but as you read you have made a start; maybe we can see where this opportunity may lead.

The main therapeutic modalities I draw upon are psychodynamic psychotherapy, acceptance commitment therapy, schema therapy and MBCBT.
I am a trans non binary integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, with many years of experience working in an NHS Clinical Psychology Department and private practice. In private practice, I welcome anyone who feels that psychotherapy may be of help, whether you are looking to have just a few sessions to think about a specific issue or situation, or would like to consider longer-term therapy. Depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, illness, bereavement, self-esteem, gender and sexuality, queer identity, life-changes, are just some of the reasons why you may want to try psychotherapy.

I'm a fully qualified EMDR Practitioner, an MBACP Accredited psychodynamic psychotherapist & supervisor.
COVID 19 is putting huge strain on all of us and we are finding ways to cope. However, if you feel old issues and feelings are cropping up for you, it may be time to root out the problem so the present situation becomes more bearable. EMDR can help do that. In an initial online session we can discuss your problems and find out what will be most helpful for you. Past overwhelming experiences in your life ( e.g. bereavement, sexual assault, bullying, medical or health experiences, childhood abuse or neglect, transport accidents) may be intruding in a way that feels unmanageable. If so, then a trauma-focused therapy will be vital to

This approach beautifully combines Western psychodynamic theory with a deeply mindful and compassionate Buddhist understanding of self and mind.
Life's ebbs and flows can bring up a mixture of emotions, experiences and sensations. Sometimes we know what is going on and our coping strategies work well. And sometimes we feel stuck, anxious or overwhelmed with no clear path in front of us. I offer a warm and respectful space where we can work together to explore where you find yourself in life right now, identify the patterns that you might want to shift, bring some attention and care to the issues that are important to you, and identify the goals you'd like to reach at the pace that feels right for you.

I am an integrative counselling psychologist, I am therapeutically trained in several disciplines including Psychodynamic theory, Person-Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Existential Psychotherapy.
My clients are as diverse as the world in which we live and I endeavour to be culturally aware within my practice. I specialise within anxiety, mood disorders, and spiritual growth. My areas of work include depression, stress, bereavement and grief, anxiety, panic, phobias, self-esteem, self-worth, confidence, body image, eating disorders, suicidality and self-harming behaviours, family and relationship issues, trauma, and abuse (not an exhaustive list). The unique nature of therapy means that it can be time-limited or may be open-ended, it may be goal orientated or more flexibly experienced, we will work together to decide.

Having experienced at first hand the hugely positive impact counselling has had on my own life, I chose to train as a psychodynamic therapist to help others experience the same profound benefits. I now use an integrative approach, which has enriched my work with clients. Working with you, we will together examine and uncover often unconscious or repressed memories which in turn can drive unhelpful patterns of behaviour. We will explore the sources of your problems and aim to deal with the underlying issues, not just try to find a way to cope with them. Only by making peace with the past can you look forward to a happy future.

Perhaps a specific issue has led you here today. Perhaps you would like to explore difficulties in your early life and how those are impacting on you today. We all go through times when some additional support could be useful. Perhaps I'm the right person to help. I have extensive experience of working in NHS and charity settings as well as abroad. Aside from my private practice I currently work as Senior Clinical Psychologist in an NHS service. I have worked with a wide range of difficulties and have most experience in working with complex trauma, interpersonal difficulties, mood management, and autism spectrum conditions.

You may or may not know in advance what the source of your difficulties may be. Part of our process is to explore together what has led you here. Every person is different. Amid the stresses of daily life, it’s easy to lose touch with our own deepest needs and feelings – until they become too painful or persistent to ignore.
