Practice description

I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor and student member of the BACP. I also have a degree in Sociology from The University of Warwick. Throughout my career I have worked in a variety of settings including the Police Service, Survivors’ Network and privately as a Personal Trainer and Yoga Teacher. My interests therefore lie in working with those who have experienced trauma in all forms, whether in early years, adult life or both. I am particularly interested in using the psychodynamic approach in a way that is inclusive, creative and tailored towards the particular needs of the client in any given moment.

Psychodynamic counselling is based on the premise that unconscious thoughts and beliefs developed in infancy are at the root of our experiences as adults. As a result, we may find ourselves developing particular defences and repeating patterns in relationships with others. The aim of Psychodynamic counselling is therefore to bring what is unconscious into consciousness in a safe and supportive environment. Through doing so, the client can explore alternative ways of being in the world and bring about lasting change.
