How I Work
I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist and I work with adults on a once-weekly basis open ended basis.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a conversation between two people involved in a collaborative activity. It involves telling what is troubling you, in confidence. We both think about your current situation, feelings and behaviour so as to seek to find meaningful links with past experiences, and how they are being repeated in the present as expressed by current emotional difficulties.
The first meeting involves a 50 minute consultation, in order to provide the opportunity for us to meet each other, for you to ask any questions which you may have, and for us to think together about whether psychodynamic psychotherapy may be of benefit to your individual needs, circumstances, and expectations.
If we agree that therapy would be of benefit to you, we would usually meet weekly on the same day at the same time for 50 minutes, working with the issues which you bring to therapy.
