Traumatic life events can create sudden, urgent need for support. Equally, therapy can be a positive, planned act of self care, facing old wounds or barriers to growth and happiness. 16 years practice with young people, adults, couples and families has taught me that everyone has unique experiences and needs. Therefore my approach is integrative, tailored to each client and draws on 7 years training which includes psychodynamic psychotherapy, solution focused therapy, CBT, DBT, trauma focused and humanistic counselling. I am committed to providing a positive, rewarding and life enhancing experience for both clients and supervisees.

A focus on psychodynamic , relational and developmental theory enables me to strive for a safe and empathic place.
People generally look for a counsellor because they feel stuck or unable to move forward from unhelpful thoughts and behaviour patterns. You could struggle to connect with others and maintain healthy relationships. You may also feel like you can’t keep up with the people around you; as though everyone is doing better than you are. Self-acceptance and self-worth may be a problem, especially if you are suffering from anxiety and depression. Do you want to move forward and build yourself a sustainable future?

I provide a range of evidence based psychotherapies to alleviate psychological distress in Devon, my main approach being Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). Intensive Short term Dynamic Psychotherapy is a highly effective form of psychodynamic psychotherapy designed to help you get to the heart of the matter quickly, and resolve issues fast. The approach is emotion focussed; a relational therapy that can address a wide range of ongoing problems or symptoms. ISTDP is particularly useful in attending to internal conflicts that can arise from interpersonal relationships.

I am an experienced Adult Psychotherapist (Psychoanalytic / Psychodynamic ) and will often work with clients who have experienced severe and complex trauma or difficult relational issues, particularly where these have arisen in childhood and continue to be problematic in later life.
I believe that our capacity to cope with issues that arise in adult life, whether this is how we experience the world, relate to others, cope with difficult situations or understand and manage what can often be overwhelming emotions, is ultimately bound up with our early experiences. Whether we wish to or not we carry our history with us and sometimes this does not provide the strong foundation needed to engage and embrace life or weather its storms. I work with clients to recognise the origins of their difficulties so that together we might arrive at a place where life is understandable, and they feel both validated and valued.

Life can feel like a struggle, or we may feel that we’re just not living the life that we’d like to. Perhaps you’re questioning who you are? Sometimes, whether we have others around us or not, we can feel lonely. We may feel that we have no-one to talk to. My aim is to provide a space to BE. A space to be seen, heard and valued. A space to explore what might be troubling you, who you are, and how you might cultivate a life that feels meaningful and fulfilling. In particular, I specialise in working with Highly Sensitive People as defined by Elaine Aron, and how life experiences may affect this minority of people. ​

I know it's never easy taking the first step asking for help when you are struggling with life. We place ourselves at the bottom of list when it comes to our own well-being. Have you reached a point where you are beginning to notice your mental health is starting to impact those around you or maybe you no longer enjoy the things that used to bring you joy. Has your physical health changed, are you distant and withdrawn towards others, or maybe you put on an "act" when you around others to avoid others seeing you as you really are. Or maybe you wish to develop a greater self-confidence, or tools to cope more effectively with life?

Life is rarely straightforward and it's not always easy untangle things on your own. Psychotherapy offers the opportunity to slow down and take a bit of time to look at the conditions of our lives. From there we can start to develop awareness of how we think, feel and respond to relationships and the situations we find ourselves in. Sometimes past circumstances can come to determine how we deal with things in the present. Psychotherapy aims to help us identify patterns and choose what to change. Working through issues in this way can create more choices in how we respond to others and the circumstances of our lives.

Therapy offers a private and sacred space to think, feel and experience your true self. It explores your needs and processes feelings as they arise and from this comes a new clarity of awareness. I sometimes think of it as coming out of the dark woods and into the light. This transforming of the self takes place at first within the therapeutic relationship. Being listened to unfolds a discovery of new insights, which activates the development of inner strength, resilience, resolve, and purpose, as it gradually releases you from the felt wounds you have been carrying, such as, anger, confusion, sadness, grief, regret or loss.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Plymouth, 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.
