If you're reading this, it's likely that you're feeling the need to seek some help and support in your life, and perhaps make some changes. You may have something specific that you're looking to change or gain help with. It may be that you're feeling stuck, experiencing feelings of depression, anxiety, uncertainty and/or feeling overwhelmed. Counselling can be an incredibly valuable tool to help, regardless of the issue. I am experienced in working with clients dealing with and experiencing a wide range of issues. These include, but are not limited to problems in relationships, self esteem, bereavement, anxiety and depression.

As an integrative therapist, clinical hypnotherapist and psychology graduate, I will draw on many different modalities such as CBT, NLP, EFT, Solution Focussed Therapy, Person Centred, Psychodynamic modalities and Clarkson’s Relational Model to create an individual approach that will compliment your specific issue and your relationship style.
Are you feeling lost and confused? Are thoughts whirling in your head leaving you feeling exhausted? Maybe you have a major life decision to make, or have had to adjust to a change that you did not want? Do all your relationships end the same way, and you want to learn how to stop repeating the pattern? Whatever reason you have for looking for counselling, I’d like to reassure you that I have probably already helped someone in your situation, and I can help you. The first step, asking for help, is the hardest.

I will explore all aspects of your being to tailor a therapy that works best for you and your needs.

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist based in Wokingham. I am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council and Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists. My work is psychoanalytic in nature and offers open ended treatment. This kind of therapy is based on the idea that what we experience as a conscious difficulty in the present may point to an unconscious problem with roots in the past. You may find you are struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, self-destructive behaviours or difficulties at work or in relationships and want to have a better understanding of what underpins these issues.

I am trained in psychodynamic and interpersonal therapy.
I don't have an ideal client as I see each person as unqiue with their own set of issues and needs. I aim to explore with the client the issues they are currently experiencing and then would aim to facilitate the client to identify their needs and then explore how to establish realistic expectations of themselves and others. When we have done this I would help the client to establish their own goals and identify ways to achieve this. I would employ a variety of methods to do this based on the individual's needs so we may focus on understanding the past and its impact on the present or we may focus on the here and now issues.

Counselling is for anyone who feels they need help. That help could be coming to terms with a particular issue in your life or learning to manage difficult and upsetting feelings. I provide a safe and confidential environment where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions. Although support may be available from family, friends and colleagues; it is often helpful to step outside of these relationships and speak to a professional who has no other emotional involvement in your life. ​

All of us struggle at points in our life, disappointment, stress, loneliness, failure, self-esteem and relationship issues, to name only a few. I offer a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space to share your thoughts and issues. Our collaboration and relationship is key to the therapy taking place. Past experiences contribute to how we think, feel and behave today, resulting in negative outcomes. This awareness of our past can bring about new feelings and behaviours, allowing for change. I can help with work stress/marital issues/codependence/self-esteem/depression/bereavement/trust issues/life transitions and career changes.

Every individual brings a unique set of issues, but it's usually mental or emotional distress that leads you to seek therapy. Some short-term relief can be gained, but developing your strength and inner emotional resources can take time, so you can confront and manage your challenges.

I am an experienced and qualified counsellor. I understand how difficult it is to contact a counsellor when the time for change has come for you. It is a courageous decision to come to counselling and you are not alone in how you feel. If you are experiencing concern, stress or distress the feelings of anxiety, depression or suicidal thoughts may also be present. Counselling offers you the space to ground yourself and work out a better way forward for you, the mixture of feelings can become clearer by the process of counselling. I will work with you to understand the challenges you face and changes you wish to make.

I appreciate that people seek therapy for a variety of reasons and know this can feel daunting for many. My approach is warm, compassionate, and collaborative. This provides the trust and safety to address difficulties and work towards change. I value the individuality of each person I work with. I use this to explore how your life history and personal circumstances have influenced ways of thinking, feeling, and relating to others. I can support you to identify your goals for therapy and enhance your strengths to achieve these.

My focus is on creating a warm and accepting environment where each person is accepted unconditionally. There is no personal, relationship or family issue that will either surprise or deter me from working with you and the members of your family to hopefully find solutions and resolve past or current conflicts. Each person has their own perception of the story to tell and you are given time and space to explore and express these thoughts and feelings without blame or recrimination from others. I offer you a safe space in the presence of your loved ones in order for you to claim your identity and step into your true potential.

Thoughts, feelings concerns cannot be deleted and the harder you try to avoid or suppress them the greater the hold they have and the more they will interrupt your daily life. As daunting as it feels, the way to manage difficult thoughts is to explore and understand why it is that they are making you feel a certain way, whether they have a purpose whether they are rooted in your past and affecting you in the here and now. Through exploration comes understanding. Through understanding comes acceptance and with that the freedom to choose how you move forward.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Wokingham, 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.
