My Approach

My counselling and therapeutic approach is psychoanalytic in nature. It places importance on early childhood experiences and interactions with society and culture on how we see ourselves and others.


It is based on the idea that we keep difficult memories and experiences in the unconscious because they are too painful for the conscious mind to process. However, these experiences continue to have an unconscious influence on the way we think, feel and behave in relationships and situations in the present.


A psychoanalytic approach helps bring the more unconscious aspects of yourself into conscious awareness. Through a process of self insight you will be supported in finding your way through your emotional difficulties.  This is helped by us paying attention to what is happening in our relationship in the therapy situation.

Whilst my core approach is psychodynamic, I will tailor my sessions to your unique and individual needs. 

Counselling can be a highly rewarding and positive experience. However, it is important to recognise that counselling and psychotherapy is not for everyone. If the process or the way I work does not feel like a good fit for you, I will help refer you to other services that are more suited to your needs.
