About Me

I have fifteen years’ experience as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice, as well as an earlier ten years’ experience in counselling. I was attracted to the profession originally by my own introspection and difficulties in living. It is still helpful in that regard, and it is also an endlessly interesting discipline both clinically and academically.

The value of psychotherapy, as I understand it, lies in its usefulness in helping a person to gain some mastery over ingrained states of mind that hamper his or her capacity to live in a rewarding and productive way.

Therapeutic Model

 Psychoanalytic or psychodynamic psychotherapy is a form of treatment that helps us to know about and modify unconscious ways of functioning that can prevent us deriving satisfaction from our work and relationships. Analytic work offers the hope of new decisiveness and flexibility in living.
