I'm trained & qualified in psychodynamic counselling where we look at how we may have formed relationship templates & built defences that we needed in our early & formative years or helped us survive trauma, but which may not help us going forwards & it may be effecting our current relationships in a negative way.
Do you struggle with anxiety, trauma, low self esteem, relationship issues? Has life just become too much and you need a safe space, judgement free to be heard and work through it all? Maybe you just want someone to help you unpick all of your thoughts feelings and emotions that can be overwhelming and all consuming at times. I can provide an space where we can unpick all of this together, helping you to understand yourself a bit better and work towards inner peace.

These include traditional talking therapies such as psychodynamic and person centred approaches but also mindfulness and psycho-education.
If you are struggling with your relationships, feeling depressed, anxious or sad, or have difficult feelings about yourself and are finding it hard to enjoy life, I would like to help. Perhaps you keep repeating a pattern of behaviour that is difficult for you, or perhaps you just want to grow, change and develop. Experiencing difficulty is such a normal part of life. Counselling can help you to process past experiences and gain a greater understanding of behaviours, thoughts and feelings in the present.

Over 25 years of experience of psychotherapy for clients with a wide variety of presenting issues, with a special interest in the treatment of developmental and single incident trauma, as well as life changes and transitions of all kind, including issues of sexual and gender identity. I see anxiety and depression as the result of life circumstances and not 'chemical imbalances in the brain', even though they might result in those. I treat people as individuals, not as diagnoses. I tend to work long-term but can offer short term, symptom focussed treatment.

Learning to gain a sense of self can be a very important first step on a healing journey. I am interested in whole hearted wellness- begin to learn how to take care of yourself undoing attachment issues and relational problems. Address low energy and self esteem.

Life can throw many challenges at us, and whilst we may often cope well, we sometimes need a little support from someone unrelated to our lives. This is where effective counselling, tailored to the individual or couple, has its place. I am experienced via the NHS, charities and private practice in helping individual and couple clients explore a wide range of personal and relationship issues. I specialise in working with trauma, sex offending issues, sex and pornography addictions and other paraphilias. I offer a totally non-judgmental, confidential space to safely explore your current difficulties.

I offer psychodynamic counselling, an approach which seeks to bring into awareness unconscious beliefs, behaviours and coping strategies which may have helped you cope in the past, perhaps in childhood, but are now outdated and holding you back.
You may be wondering why you do some of the things you do, things that may be harmful to yourself or others, or that keep bringing you back to square one. Perhaps you feel lonely, even when you are with other people, or stuck in the process of making a difficult decision or transition. You may be struggling with depression or anxiety, or feel stressed and find it hard to relax. Whatever your reason for ending up at my page, your being here shows that you have, at the very least, a glimmer of hope that things could be better, and a sense that you need someone to help you on your journey.

Walk-Talk Therapy: Do you want to re-connect with nature? To feel more grounded, mindful & to just slow down? We will walk in the beautiful woods and fields near my counselling room in the South Downs. Walking & being in nature releases endorphins which in turn reduces depression and anxiety. Life is often so busy that nature becomes removed - this will give you time to reconnect. For some people face to face traditional counselling is too anxiety provoking, so walking in parallel can feel more comfortable.

Many people have had an experience of therapy in the past and it has not produced the results they wanted. This in part can be due to the person going to see a therapist who is trained in one specific therapeutic modality (approach), who then tries to make the client fit that one approach. Collaboratively, we will work together to help you feel better, happier, more in control and confident in who you are as a person. As you begin to understand yourself and why you do things more, this will open you up to greater awareness in all parts of your life; home, work and relationships.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy, 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.
