Personal Statement

I am Psychodynamic counsellor which entails working with unconscious processes, which are key to understanding current behaviours and the patterns that have been formed. We would work together to make sense of your emotions, and with reflection, work out the best path to move forward.

I work with people from different sexual orientations, social and cultural backgrounds. I understand that you may be feeling anxious, a lack of connection, have a sense of loss or just feel stuck. You may even feel disconcerted or ill at ease, and cannot understand why or who to turn to.

I appreciate that each person is completely individual, and so will find the most appropriate approach that considers your particular life circumstances. My aim is to listen carefully to your feelings and tailor the approach and work at a pace that makes sense for you.
