- Short Term Psychodynamic Therapy
The reasons for seeking therapy are many and varied: relationship loss or difficulties, trauma past or present, parenting problems, work concerns, matters that haunt us from our past, life transitions and choices. The list is manifold, but what I strive to offer everyone who seeks my help is a safe and confidential place where they can be listened to seriously, thoughtfully, compassionately and without judgement.
Sometimes the reason for seeking therapy is not clear, but you find yourself trapped by familiar patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviours which you recognise are holding you back, yet seem inescapable. You may have been plunged into feelings of despair, anxiety and sadness. In collaboration with you, I can help you process your emotions and behaviours and discover ways to overcome the obstacles in your life so that you can move forwards.
I have clinical experience spanning over a decade acquired within the NHS, the Priory and as a private practitioner. This, along with my training, means that I have a wealth of practical and theoretical knowledge which will inform my work with you.
In order to become a chartered psychologist, I undertook six years of rigorous training. This training combined therapeutic practice with the scientific discipline of psychological theory and research. I have been trained in three evidence-based psychological therapies: psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural therapy and humanistic.
