I am a UKCP accredited Core Process psychotherapist. Core Process psychotherapy - one of the original contemplative approaches combining Western psychodynamic theory with Eastern philosophy - is a mindfulness-based approach that can support us to bring a more spacious awareness to what is difficult and/or causing us to suffer. ​Practised within an atmosphere of joint-enquiry, kindness and compassion, the approach understands awareness to be intrinsically healing and supportive of our discovering greater choice and freedom in our lives.

Often people come to psychotherapy because they recognise that they’re unhappy, that something’s not right and that they could do with some help and guidance. Sometimes the reasons behind our feelings of fear or a lack of confidence are clear, but at other times we might not be able to pinpoint an exact cause behind an ambiguous sense of dissatisfaction and agitation. Some of us may experience low self-esteem, hopelessness, depression, a lack of motivation or a loss of purpose or meaning. We may be suffering from trauma-related conditions, a persistent state of anxiety, dissociation, feelings of being overwhelmed or shame.

Whenever you're not willing to feel an emotion, your choices and behaviours stem from your avoidance of that emotion. Your resistance runs your life & is directly contrary to your overall best interest. Similarly, traumas are incidents unable to be completed. The energies of these traumas are stored in our body until they can be released. I assist you to unlock these traumas by reactivating the emotional responses to these trapped emotions, which unlocks the synapses in the brain, allowing new positive emotional learning to replace the old trauma. Your energy field then becomes less dense, & a new sense of freedom takes hold.

Much of the work that takes place in my sessions involves focusing on managing difficulties in the present moment. Although we do explore the onset and triggers for your difficulties, we look at how we can work with them in the here and now. This is achieved through exploring how the way you think and behave affects the way you feel, both emotionally and physically. We look at trying to challenge unhelpful ways of thinking and unhelpful behavioural patterns to break free from vicious cycles that might be affecting your happiness.

People who embark on a psychoanalytically informed therapy attend for a variety of reasons. Depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, stress, shame or low self esteem, what is important is that the problems have been around for some time and despite our best efforts do not improve by trying to address them on our own. This leaves us feeling stuck and alone, with increasing symptoms and frustrations. The aim of this type of therapy is to not only to help with the conscious symptoms, but to help develop understanding and awareness of what lies beneath the symptoms, enriching our lives and relationships, enabling change.

The people I work with frequently struggle to regulate their thoughts and feelings. Despite their best efforts, they experience their thoughts as adhesive and their thinking as hard to control. They worry into the future and/or brood repeatedly on negative themes. Typically, they experience anxiety and depression together and have often reduced their activities or avoided situations to prevent triggering their difficult experiences. They want to gain a better understanding of the nature of their problems and why they persist and receive clear guidance on how to target these factors with evidence-based therapy.
