Therapeutic Approach

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Offers

A secure relationship with regular weekly appointments.
An ability to make sense of patterns of thinking feeling and behaviour.
An opportunity to make choices previously unrecognised.
Consistent contact to explore and work through feelings which can be confusing or overwhelming.

I specialise in psychodynamic psychotherapy - how interpersonal processes and relationships affect human behaviour, taking into account cognitive and systemic factors.

It provides a safe framework with clearly defined boundaries in which distressing and painful issues can be dealt with, in the context of the therapeutic relationship.

It enables clients to find suitable solutions and develop self-management methods and systems internally and externally.
