Prior to completing a 4 year post-graduate clinical training at WPF Therapy, I trained as a bereavement counsellor with a national charity and completed a WPF Counselling Diploma. In addition to my independent practice, I have provided psychotherapy in the NHS in specialist units for survivors of childhood sexual abuse, and have experience of working collaboratively with a diverse group of people.
Anyone experiencing symptoms which include anxiety, despair, depression, inner loneliness and low self-esteem. Some people want to understand themselves and others better, or may feel trapped in repeating patterns of behaviour, or have difficulties in making and sustaining relationships. Others seek to come to terms with something which has happened, or is happening, in their lives.
I am licensed to practice once-weekly open-ended, or time-limited, psychodynamic therapy. We would seek to understand what is troubling you, including the unknown assumptions, originating in early experiences, which you may hold about yourself and others; this is a means to develop inner resilience and understanding so as to manage future difficulties in living in the present.
Due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, sessions are currently being held via ZOOM (or by ZOOM and telephone after the initial consultation).
The initial consultation lasts up to 90 minutes and provides the opportunity for us to meet, in a private safe space and think about your situation, find out more about how we could work together, and to decide whether therapy might be of benefit to you. Subsequent weekly sessions last 50 minutes.
I charge £65.00 for initial consultations and subsequent weekly sessions. The current availability is on Tuesday evenings and Wednesday afternoons. (The places which I retain for people unable to pay the full fee are currently full).
I am registered with The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and adhere to their ethical codes.
