I am an experienced bilingual professionally qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist specialised in adult psychotherapy. I am passionate about helping people who are going through emotional struggles and need help with their symptoms. Our sessions together imply hard work from both of us in gaining a deeper understanding of yourself. This, in turn, can help create a better and more positive connection with yourself and with the people around you. My understanding of human and psychological development, together with an emphasis on attachment patterns and the psychology of complexes are pillars which support my work.

My background is as an Integrative Counsellor where I can use skills from different theoretical perspectives such as Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, CBT and Existential Counselling to suit each individual client.
I have worked with both individual clients and couples. I have worked with individuals in secondary school, community mental health, charities and the NHS providing both short-term and long-term counselling. I have worked with couples using emotionally focused therapy which allows the couple to look at their current cycle of feeling and thoughts and how that impact on their behaviour towards each other.

Person Centered is a theory where we discuss only what is causing an issue with you now, and Psychodynamic is where we explore the past issues that continue to be replayed in your mind.
Therapy can help you whilst going through some of the most difficult times in your life, whether they are in the present or the past. As a counsellor there would be a safe place to offload those harmful thoughts in the room and where the focus is on the thoughts and feelings you have created. My focus is on you the client to support you at an emotional and steady pace; and to progress you from where you are to a place of contentment. I have been a therapist to children to mature adults. Remember that, "you are more than your past".

My approach is mainly Psychodynamic and I firstly offer a consultation where we go through what is currently causing any distress.
I offer consultations, 1:1 & group online therapy sessions for young people between 11-25yr. Life is a journey & can have various struggles along the way. It's ok to need support to break through some painful and frustrating day to day barriers. If there's a struggle with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, grief or anger, it's time to take a step forward -so let's work through it together! I explore early/recent experiences which may drive presenting behaviours or feelings & explore unconscious processes contributing towards unhealthy patterns/behaviours.

My experience comes from having worked within a variety of family and child settings, a counselling service for young people, a hospice as a bereavement counsellor, and supporting couples in their relationships. I work with families who foster and the secondary trauma that they can also experience. Although I have been trained in the psychodynamic approach, I work using other models to best suit and help individuals explore and become aware of blocks in their lives, working towards making changes.

I offer short and long term integrative counselling, incorporating the psychodynamic, person-centered, and cognitive behavioural therapy models, to support and enable you to work towards your goals.
I have been in that unimaginable place, where I did not know where to turn or even where to begin to make the necessary changes to improve my life. It is through my own positive experiences of counselling that I decided to train to become a counsellor. I understand that taking that first step towards seeking support can seem very challenging. It is with this empathetic thought in mind, and the ethical framework that I work within that I always endeavour to establish a transparent and trusting therapeutic relationship, without judgement, in a safe and confidential environment.

Everyone can go through a challenging time and we all do it in our own way. You might find it challenging or relieving to talk to a professional and either could work. My sessions offer a safe and non-judgemental space to explore how we both can work together so you can get the most benefit from the therapy. I believe every person deals with their situations differently and therefore I apply an integrative approach to suit your needs. Some of the various approaches I use are Person Centred, EMDR, CBT, Gestalt, Psychodynamic and more.

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.

Psychodynamic Counsellors

Is psychodynamic therapy evidence-based?

Studies have found psychodynamic therapy to be effective in treating conditions like social anxiety, eating disorders, chronic pain, some personality disorders, and depression; indeed, some studies have found it to be just as effective as CBT or medication. What’s more, several studies have found that the benefits of psychodynamic therapy tend to endure—even grow—long after treatment has ended.

How long does psychodynamic therapy last?

Unlike CBT and other more structured forms of therapy, psychodynamic therapy tends to be open-ended and may not be limited to a set number of sessions. It is common for clients to be in therapy for a year or longer and to see their therapist one to three times a week, though the exact schedule and timeline may vary depending on a client’s challenges and progress. However, brief psychodynamic therapy is available, which tends to be more goal-oriented and typically unfolds over 16 to 30 sessions.

Does psychodynamic therapy work?

Research finds that psychodynamic therapy can help someone manage or reduce symptoms of diagnosable mental health conditions like depression or anxiety. The modality may also offer a range of benefits that are harder to measure but just as valuable—such as increased self-worth or healthier relationships. While no therapy type will work for everyone, research and anecdotal evidence suggest that psychodynamic therapy can be highly effective.

What are the limitations of psychodynamic therapy?

Some meta-analyses have concluded that there is little evidence to suggest that psychodynamic therapy can effectively treat certain mental health conditions such as PTSD, OCD, or psychosis, though it is sometimes used to do so. More broadly, the open-ended, free-association structure of psychodynamic therapy may be frustrating for clients who prefer a more structured, time-limited, or goal-oriented approach.
