Do you feel stressed or worried or perhaps stuck in some way and need someone to talk to? Life can get especially hard when you are struggling but keep going, pretending to the world that you’re ok but finding things difficult or overwhelming inside of yourself. Talking therapy offers a way out of this and my role is to facilitate a safe, supportive and confidential space where you can begin to address problem areas in your life. I work with a wide range of mental health difficulties including depression, anxiety, relationship conflict and difficulties, low self-esteem, stress, burnout and bereavement.

I am a Chartered Principal Clinical Psychologist whose approach to therapy is psychodynamic, focusing on understanding a person’s individual experience of the world and the problems they’ve come to live with. This involves us working together to try to understand the particular meaning of one’s difficulties and troubling feelings and how and why such distressing experiences have occurred at this point in life. Such understandings often help people feel less troubled and ‘stuck’, for example with depression, anxiety or traumatic experiences, clearing the way for the changes that have been longed-for but remained elusive.

I am a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). I worked for five years providing long-term psychotherapy to individuals with histories of addiction and childhood trauma. This gave me an understanding of the extent to which adverse early experiences can impact on behaviour and psychic functioning in adulthood. Since then, I have undertaken post-qualifying training in the treatment of PTSD, C-PTSD and trauma-related dissociative disorders. I have a particular clinical and theoretical interest in states of depersonalisation, derealisation and feelings of disconnection.
