I work with all couples and adults within a psychoanalytic and psychodynamic framework. I therefore understand psychotherapy as a process of increased conscious awareness of our unconscious feelings, needs, anxieties and fantasies, within the context of our current and past relationships. Increased conscious awareness provides us with information about ourselves, about others and about our world so that we can grow, change and realize our full potential. People are complex and unique and therefore when someone presents with a symptom/s or specific problem, the focus of the work is often much broader and encompassing than the presenting problem only. I therefore list some specific areas of interest and experience, but the work is never limited to that only. I have a specialisation in Couple Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and is a qualified EMDR practitioner. I offer online therapy.
