I believe we all have an 'internal healer' in us. It helps us cope with so-called 'ordinary human unhappiness'.

But at some point many of us find ourselves in a dark place and we can't find the way out on our own. 

We can only get better when we want to and are prepared to change.

If you are willing to take this step, I will safely guide you through this journey of change to a better, happier you.

My Vision

What is psychotherapy?


Although psychotherapy and counselling overlap in many different ways, psychotherapy focuses on working with clients for a longer period. Sessions often take place on a weekly or twice weekly basis and therapy doesn't usually have an agreed number of sessions. Unlike counselling, it is offered for as long as needed. This approach is referred to as 'open-ended'.

Loss, grief, bereavement

- loss of job, status, home

Psychosomatic illness

- regular aches and pains

- stress related illness

- not feeling quite alright or yourself 

Migraines

Depression

Anxiety

Problems at school

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

The goals of Psychodynamic Therapy are the client's self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on the present behaviour. 

It helps to explore any patterns in your relationships, as well as examine unresolved conflicts.

I use CBT, mindfulness and mentalization to enhance my psychodynamic approach.
