- Short Term Psychodynamic Therapy
Before qualifying as a psychoanalyst I worked in psychiatric day hospitals, long stay care and in a community mental health team as a senior occupational therapist. I currently work in private practice. I regret there isn't wider availability through the NHS for people to take 'time out' in order to better understand why they are struggling with confusion, unhappiness, or a specific problem/crisis and how they can challenge and change it.
