Psychodynamic counselling can help develop a self-awareness around the reasons for unhelpful behavioural patterns, both past and present. Looking at how we have built defences to protect ourselves from emotional pain can also help in understanding how they may be impacting on the way we relate to ourselves and others in everyday life.

I trained in psychodynamic counselling.
Deciding to engage in therapy is a positive and brave decision to embark on a journey of self-discovery. As a therapist, my role is to create a secure base and be a guide for you, so that you can take up this challenge of self-discovery and move towards greater consciousness, choice and positivity. While working with difficulties in the present many have their origins in emotional experiences and unconscious emotional learning in early life relationships. This includes family, main caregivers and other influential figures. Also events and consistent experiences, which may amount to degrees of difficulty, pain or trauma.

I am a BACP Registered and experienced psychodynamic counsellor.
Sometimes we can feel stuck in life, and find ourselves caught in a cycle of unhelpful behaviour patterns or ways of relating to ourselves and others. We may feel conflicted,anxious sad or depressed but don't know why. We want to understand ourselves better and to be understood by others. We want to achieve inner peace but we don’t know how to, or feel we have the capacity to make changes or achieve lasting healing.

My professional training is in Process-experiential/Person-centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
The difficulties we experience in life can be highly impactful on how we see ourselves, how we relate to ourselves/others and on our own wellbeing. We can become stuck in unhelpful patterns of behaviour, trapped in our own internal conflict or afraid of/detached from our own emotion. Recognising that each of us is unique, therapy is a highly individualised process that aims to help us understand how our own internal world may be impacting our external problems. Focus is placed on gaining a compassionate understanding of why our lives are as they are and on processing any blocked emotion that is preventing change.

The idea of my approach is an integrative one: I've studied, and I'm qualified to deliver, a mixed modality of therapies to address client issues. From psychodynamic active listening and using a safe space to get things out in the open, or perhaps using CBT techniques to address something specific, either way - I'm equipped to help guide you through what it is that is troubling you, or holding you back, from moving forward.

The main therapeutic modalities I draw upon are psychodynamic psychotherapy, acceptance commitment therapy, schema therapy and MBCBT.
I am a trans non binary integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, with many years of experience working in an NHS Clinical Psychology Department and private practice. In private practice, I welcome anyone who feels that psychotherapy may be of help, whether you are looking to have just a few sessions to think about a specific issue or situation, or would like to consider longer-term therapy. Depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, illness, bereavement, self-esteem, gender and sexuality, queer identity, life-changes, are just some of the reasons why you may want to try psychotherapy.

Whatever your reasons for being here, you are very welcome. I provide a very safe and confidential space to people from ALL walks of life. Whatever difficulty you are experiencing I can help you to gain insight into why these difficulties exist and persist. Together, we will think about your past relational experiences and how they are unconsciously influencing how you behave now. Developing a profound understanding of your unconscious self can be life changing. Psychodynamic therapy is about gaining insight, getting in touch with yourself, understanding why you are who you are.

Psychodynamic  therapy focuses on both the past and present. The psychodynamic approach looks at how important the role of the unconscious and past experiences is on influencing our current behaviour. I believe therapy can reduce pain from past experiences if you are willing and ready to motivate change within yourself. Whether it's short-term or open-ended therapy you are looking for I can help you gain a greater sense of wellbeing. Giving yourself the time to come to counselling will bring greater self-awareness and with it the opportunity for personal development and lasting change in your life.

I'm trained in psychodynamic and person-centred therapies and integrate CBT-skills.
Life is a series of changes, often bringing loss and pain but also the seeds of a positive transformation. Even if you're unsure how to move forward, a theme can emerge. Counselling can facilitate a new understanding of ourselves, our different relationships, our place in the world. By reassessing hopes and fears, we can work towards the difference we want to experience. Alongside general counselling, I have specialist experience in post-natal depression and traumatic emotional and sexual abuse. My approach, however, is to treat every person without presumptions, trusting the space that opens up and finding the best way for you.

I work therapeutically using aspects from varied approaches based on what you find to be helpful; including Person Centered, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy and Transactional Analysis.
I am a qualified counsellor and member of the BACP. I use a pluralistic approach to my therapy. This involves working collaboratively with my clients, their individuality thus incorporating shared decision making.  I can work with a wide range of concerns and assist you with issues you may be facing such as anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions, stress, anger, sexual abuse and many others. An example of this approach is discussing with you what you would like to achieve from therapy then working together to achieve the most effective way to get there.

I was born and raised in multicultural societies all my life. Living in several different countries on 3 different continents (United Arab Emirates, Canada, Pakistan, Wales and England) has given me unique knowledge about culturally adapting therapy. It has also taught me to understand and work with many different kinds of people. I believe in building a strong therapeutic relationship with the client to create a safe and comfortable space to address and potentially alleviate psychological trauma.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy, 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.
