I am a fully qualified, BACP registered psychodynamic therapist working near Hassocks, West Sussex. I strive to create an open and accepting atmosphere for clients to work through their difficulties and gain a better understanding of themselves and their past experiences, in order to create meaningful and lasting change in their lives. My approach in sessions incorporates psychodynamic theory with a motivation towards creating empowerment and a bespoke approach to you and your individual concerns. Sessions are always tailored to your needs and at a pace you feel comfortable with.
The aim of psychodynamic therapy is to understand our current thoughts, feelings and behaviours in the context of our past experiences and unconscious conflicts. This approach can lead to changes in repeating patterns that are causing distress, healthier relationships with yourself and others, and help you build confidence to move forward.
I believe in building a trusting, supportive therapeutic relationship through acceptance, openness and transparency, all of which you can expect from me at all times during our work together. Choosing to begin therapy is a big step - I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about my practice via e-mail, the contact form on my website or text message.
