  • Bereavement

  • Childhood sexual abuse

  • Depression

  • Domestic violence

  • Eating disorders

  • Loneliness and isolation

I offer both focused and time-limited work on a particular identified issue raised, as well as longer term open-ended work.

Approach

 

I offer a psychoanalytic approach which recognises how recurring patterns in relationships may have been effected by the past and earlier experiences.  From childhood the foundations for relationships are set in place and provide a template for what lies ahead.  We lay down strategies to cope with unpredictable or unpalatable feelings.  It may be that circumstances arise where we struggle and find we are less able to draw upon these previous strategies and we turn to new ways of managing that are less helpful and serve to hurt us more.  This psychoanalytic approach can help identify these patterns through building awareness and by understanding the origins and facilitating the prospect of feeling less helpless and less inclined to repetition.  By uncovering the patterns locked within these dynamics, noticing the links and perhaps understanding their meaning, these unwanted patterns can reduce and space is made for creating new, more helpful patterns of relating or behaving. 

I offer both focused and time-limited work on a particular identified issue raised as well as longer term open-ended work.  

 

Fee

My fee starts at £65 and upwards.  We can discuss this and other practicalities at our initial consultation, in person or on-line.  

I offer a limited number of sessions at a reduced fee by negotiation for those on low income and to students.
