As a psychodynamic psychotherapist I will work with you to gently and safely unpick the past, and explore it with you in relation to current troubles.
​Asking for help can be scary, a risk when you feel least like taking one. Past experiences or current situations can leave you troubled, perhaps struggling to relate to others, even to yourself. Do you feel alone, out of place and misunderstood or maybe low and unmotivated? Do you put a brave face on it but inside feel the pain? Or perhaps you worry that you lash out too easily at those around you? ​Is it hard to put your needs first? Personal therapy can help you to gain insight to face the world and toubles differently. If you are open to understanding yourself better, to experiencing life more fully then therapy can help.

My training comprised Humanistic, Psychodynamic and CBT therapies.
In troubling times it can sometimes feel like you are alone & seeking help might feel really difficult. Just having a space to make sense of the thoughts that jumble around our heads is invaluable. Perhaps you need to understand yourself, your relationships or events from your past. Sometimes all we need is someone to just listen and hear our story. Counselling promotes insight, fosters self-awareness & creates a stronger, more resilient sense of self. This powerful combination can be the kick-start for the changes in your life you wish to make - sometimes even the smallest changes can make a huge difference in your well-being.

Whatever it is, I provide a safe, warm place in which you can talk things through with me in confidence and where you will be listened to with compassion, understanding and without judgement. I believe in the power of relationship: building a relationship with you where trust and acceptance facilitate open communication about the things that are troubling you.

You might be feeling overwhelmed by all the people in your life and the things you have to do to make life feel less chaotic, less out of your control. You may have found ways of coping with this emotional turmoil which are maybe bad for you and bring quick relief for now, but the same old problems and feelings build up again in time. You would like some relief from life's pressures, some space and time to sort out who you are, why you feel this way and why things happen for you the way they do. With calmer, clearer vision of how you manage life's pressures, your life could be something you choose for yourself and enjoy more fully.

How we relate to ourselves, to others and to the world around us. In our modern fast paced and demanding world we can lose touch with who we are as an individual. We can get pulled in different directions for varying reasons, either in our personal relationships or professional. Stress, Anxiety and Depression along with life events can prevent us from realising our full potential and drag and hold us back. Trauma's at anytime in life can feel overwhelming and all consuming.

Life feeling something like this: - Overwhelming - Relationships strained or broken down - Difficult to voice or understand what you need - Feeling down on the edge and simply confused - When we feel this way our problems may be all mixed up growing bigger or unmanageable by the day. It could be that unconscious past experiences are impacting us once again causing confusion and psychological conflict. Maybe you would benefit from talking to someone who is not a part of your current life?

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Stroud, 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.
