Taking the first step in deciding to attend therapy is often the hardest part, it can be difficult to admit to ourselves that we may need the intervention of another to assist us on this journey. Coming to speak allows an individual to be heard in way that is specific to them, a singular , and not to fit the specifics of ticking the boxes. Speaking about your way of experiencing life and it's difficulties and challenges, can free up a person and allow them to look through a different lens.

In my practice, I strive to provide an environment of safety for clients to develop a compassionate awareness of the problems they are facing. My training has allowed me to develop a strong ability to listen deeply to what clients need; providing a much-needed sound wall so that the client does not feel alone with their problems. In this manner, we as clients can develop a patient understanding of any issue we face, i.e. anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, grief among many others. I work with clients to improve their lives and their management of personal problems in a collaborative, communicative and safe context.

Throughout our lives we encounter situations that challenge us. Sometimes we just can't get passed them, we get stuck and cannot seem to find a solution. As a result we become anxious, stressed or even depressed. I work with clients in a non directive way through psychoanalysis, which allows the client look at their situation or problems, explore the potential causes and find a way of dealing with them. There is no 'one size fits all' solution to personal difficulties, everyone's experience is unique and the psychoanalytic approach allows the client find a solution that is individual to their situation.

I am an experienced, accredited Psychotherapist in private practice since 2011. My focus is seeing the person as unfolding at different stages along life's journey. Sometimes along the way we can be knocked sideways. Failure ,loss ,abuse, relationship issues or bad choices can leave us experiencing stress, loss ,anxiety and depression . Early intervention is essential and my role as psychotherapist is to listen and enable you to gain insight. Any issue when talked about and explored in a supportive non judgemental therapeutic relationship where you are understood and supported will bring about positive change.

I combine the depth of psychodynamic and transpersonal therapy with the practical and accessible approaches of CBT and mindfulness.
I believe that creating a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore what's happening for them is fundamental to therapy. I think part of this is clients finding a therapist that feels like rhe right fit for them. I see each client as unique, with different needs and so I work flexibly focusing on responding to each individual client in the way that best works for them. I work to enable clients to reconnect with themselves with the support and guidance they need to gain more understanding around their experience and find ways to navigate challenges that work for them as a person.

Psychodynamic Counsellors

Is psychodynamic therapy evidence-based?

Studies have found psychodynamic therapy to be effective in treating conditions like social anxiety, eating disorders, chronic pain, some personality disorders, and depression; indeed, some studies have found it to be just as effective as CBT or medication. What’s more, several studies have found that the benefits of psychodynamic therapy tend to endure—even grow—long after treatment has ended.

How long does psychodynamic therapy last?

Unlike CBT and other more structured forms of therapy, psychodynamic therapy tends to be open-ended and may not be limited to a set number of sessions. It is common for clients to be in therapy for a year or longer and to see their therapist one to three times a week, though the exact schedule and timeline may vary depending on a client’s challenges and progress. However, brief psychodynamic therapy is available, which tends to be more goal-oriented and typically unfolds over 16 to 30 sessions.

Does psychodynamic therapy work?

Research finds that psychodynamic therapy can help someone manage or reduce symptoms of diagnosable mental health conditions like depression or anxiety. The modality may also offer a range of benefits that are harder to measure but just as valuable—such as increased self-worth or healthier relationships. While no therapy type will work for everyone, research and anecdotal evidence suggest that psychodynamic therapy can be highly effective.

What are the limitations of psychodynamic therapy?

Some meta-analyses have concluded that there is little evidence to suggest that psychodynamic therapy can effectively treat certain mental health conditions such as PTSD, OCD, or psychosis, though it is sometimes used to do so. More broadly, the open-ended, free-association structure of psychodynamic therapy may be frustrating for clients who prefer a more structured, time-limited, or goal-oriented approach.
