My approach to counselling is psychodynamic which makes links from past experiences to present ways of feeling and relating to oneself and others. I will work with you to look at how unconsciously, patterns of behaviour, defence mechanisms and distorted self-concepts develop over time due to suppressing difficult past experiences which can then affect our daily lives.

Psychodynamic counselling is a journey of self-knowledge where forgotten experience can be slowly and safely accessed, made sense of and managed with professional help towards realising potential change.

In practice, I will seek to find a way of working to suit your needs.

If you decide you wish to book with me, the first step would be to have two 50 minute initial consultations. The purpose of these sessions is to talk about how things are for you, what you hope to get from counselling and assess how we might work together. Should you then wish to continue counselling with me, appointments will be weekly, where possible, at the same time and will last 50 minutes.

I offer both open-ended, long-term counselling and short-term counselling. During our initial meeting, we would decide together what the best approach might be for you.
