I have experience working with the NHS, in higher education and the charity sector. I work within a psychodynamic frame thinking with clients about the conscious and unconscious, exploring relational patterns. I have a particular interest in relationships and identity.

Personal Statement

I am a psychodynamic therapist; I believe the past has an impact on our present life. I work with clients to explore issues so through the therapy process we can gain insights to the origins of presenting issues and gain awareness of our relationships and the patterns we have. It is often through the process that we are able to understand and make changes that we want to make.  

I work in collaboration with clients. I know entering therapy can be daunting, I provide a safe space and help clients bring words to their experiences and what is on their minds. Together we can try and make sense and gain an understanding which often can often lead to positive changes.
