My approach is psychodynamic, which means working with you to understand the root cause of your difficulties.
You may have been considering therapy for a while but are hesitating or perhaps you've had previous experience and need something more. You feel something is not right but it is hard to think about or put into words? Living with high levels of anxiety, shame or fear for a prolonged period, can negatively affect the way we perceive ourselves and others. So with a compassionate approach, I work with most psychological difficulties, and have a special interest in anxiety and low mood, problematic family relationships, parenting and bereavement. I also work extensively with adolescents and welcome working with those of 16+years.

I offer 1-1 weekly, psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Psychotherapy, or talking therapy helps us identify aspects of our past and how they impacted on us throughout our lives and in the present day. Through explorations with a trained professional this can lead to shifts in how we think about and understand what has happened to us and also how to respond to others and to events in our lives moving forward. You will be encouraged to talk about whatever is on your mind and to bring up feelings and thoughts for us to look at together.

Originally, I trained at the University of Oxford in psychodynamic psychotherapy over a period of four years, and have an ongoing research interest in lifespan development and personality disorder.
Seeking therapy can be a confusing process; one confounded by the fact that most come during a time of crisis. I provide a supportive, confidential space where we can think openly, free of judgement, about different aspects of you and your life. I offer psychodynamic psychotherapy, both once and twice a week at a private clinic in Summertown, Oxford.

I am a psychodynamic practitioner, working with both individuals and couples.
If you are thinking about therapy, it can be difficult to take the first step. When you come to your first session, you want to be encouraged to feel comfortable and able to share distressing thoughts and feelings. I am a compassionate listener, with experience extending over more than twenty years. Many people experience anxiety and/or depression at some point in their lives. Usually, there are factors and events over a period of time which have contributed to the way the person is feeling. We explore themes and patterns in sessions, identifying triggers for feelings and responses which may seem hard to understand.

I work integratively incorporating elements of existential and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Hi, my name is Leanne and I am an accredited existential therapist. Choosing the right therapist can be daunting but also hopeful. Right now, many of us are experiencing sadness, anxiety, anger or loss due to the pandemic and lockdown. Other reasons that have brought you here today might be a specific event such as divorce or bereavement, or a more general sense of worry, loneliness or sadness. You may feel your coping mechanisms are no longer working or be experiencing health issues such as panic attacks, insomnia or chronic illness.

Trained in several psychodynamic and cognitive models combined with a first class (honors degree) in psychology, I believe, makes my practice stand out. I like to think that I have mastered a great agility in attuning to my clients' inner world, and that perhaps offered me an invaluable skill.

At times, our experiences and emotions can feel overwhelming. This can impact us physically, emotionally as well as psychologically. Over time, this can have consequences for our day to day lives, relationships and work. Psychodynamic psychotherapy can provide an important, safe, confidential space to gain insight of our ourselves, our experiences and our difficulties. This can involve receiving help to identify, and work through, the underlying events, relationships, beliefs and fears which may be causing destructive patterns as well as feelings of being stuck, frustrated, lost and empty.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Oxford, 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.
