I am a UKCP accredited Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist offering short and long term therapy to individuals seeking to explore the emotional and psychological challenges they might be experiencing. I also have an MSc in Psychoanalytic Developmental Psychology and a background of working with new parents.
My thinking is based on the idea that our unconscious mind remembers and repeats the patterns of early relating that can later leave us feeling stuck and unhappy with life and relationships. Therapy is an opportunity to really think about how we live and how we love and to begin to gain some clarity and understanding of where we find ourselves.
I offer a safe and non judgemental thinking space to explore the difficulties that might be causing anxiety and distress – we will begin to ask questions about why this is.
I offer psychotherapy for a wide range of concerns, including but not limited to:
Coping with infertility
understanding one’s relationship to exercise, health and nutrition
Managing distressing feelings such as loneliness, sadness, grief, worry or depression
Life transitions – going back to work after maternity leave, separation/divorce, adjusting to parenthood
Difficulties with family, friends or work
