Your life experiences are completely unique, so I'll draw from a wide variety of psychodynamic techniques and therapies that will help us to focus on your particular situation.
Your life. Your time. You. Time to sort things out, explore, grow and CHANGE. Time to stop being pulled in all directions; too caught up on the treadmill of your own thoughts to find an alternative way of tackling a problem. My sessions offer you a circuit breaker; a chance to slow down, unravel your thoughts...and breathe! Stepping back and viewing your life from a more profound and reasoned angle, you will have the opportunity to share your thoughts and questions, in a secure and non-judgemental setting. It will be time well spent in order for your future life to be spent well.

I am an experienced Psychoanalytic / Psychodynamic Psychotherapist working both within the NHS as an Adult Psychotherapist and privately.
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.

Feeling comfortable and content in this world has never been more difficult. The events of 2020 have changed everyone's lives. Perhaps the pandemic has impacted you directly and you feel you need help coming to terms with what has happened? Perhaps you feel that the situations we now face are not as important to you as the things you are already trying to cope with or have been coping with for a long time? Wherever you are at this moment in time, it is important to remember that help and support are available. When therapy works well, it means that life's challenges feel shared, understood and seem somehow more manageable.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Exeter, 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.
