You may be a woman who is struggling with depression, relationship problems, anxiety, low self-esteem, or simply a sense of emptiness. You may feel trapped in, or emerging from, an abusive relationship. You may have experienced a loss recently- death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, even ageing poses its own special challenges. I specialise in working with women in particular, including LGBGT clients, by telephone, video link, and online. I am able to be flexible in the way I work, and combine different methods to suit my clients. Working by telephone or online can be very helpful to clients who are unable to travel.

I firmly believe that we are fundamentally relational beings, ones that need security, understanding & care above all else. Real change comes not from trying to fix thinking patterns, self-concepts or the past, but in shifting relational dynamics in the here and now and finding new ways of being with another. This is what I focus on in therapy with my clients, and I draw on my background and experience in modern relational psychoanalysis, developmental theory, and in depth study of phenomenology & existential philosophy to look at what emerges and how that can inform meaningful change in your life.

When life gets hard we can find ourselves revisiting old patterns in how we treat ourselves and other people. Perhaps we reach for unhelpful ways to cope, or end up feeling ashamed and stuck. You may be looking for sessions to address a specific problem such as depression, anxiety, or addiction; or to explore the patterns that you get into in your relationships with others and yourself; or because there has been great change or loss in your life and you are wondering how you can move forward.
