How I can help
By providing space ...
Life is sometimes difficult, and at times we can all feel stressed, overwhelmed, depressed and anxious.
Often these feelings pass, but sometimes they stay with us affecting our confidence and our capacity for enjoyment.
Perhaps you have lived through negative, possibly traumatic experiences which have left you anxious, depressed and mistrustful.
Perhaps you are low, exhausted, dissatisfied with the way you are living...
By taking time to listen ...
Talking through your issues with a therapist can be the first step to working through your difficulties.
Psychodynamic therapy connects how you live now, your emotional responses (or lack of them), to past experiences.
Talking through your life can reveal areas of 'stuckness', kept in place by unhelpful thinking patterns, and outdated coping strategies.
I provide a safe, non-judgemental space where we can think together about how you would like to move forward...
My training as a psychodynamic therapist took place at the University of Oxford. My therapy sessions can help you think about your life and what you might like to change. It is often useful to explore the connection between your current issues and your past experiences and/or relationships.
I work with emotional difficulties such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, unresolved childhood experiences, identity issues (i.e. heritage, mixed heritage, sexuality), work-related problems, relationship difficulties, stress, different types of trauma, and issues related to ASD.
Alongside my private practice, I work as a therapist in a trauma-focused service and see adults from a range of backgrounds. Here, I combine the more traditional 'talking' therapy with energy psychotherapy, a gentle mind-body approach which can reduce and clear symptoms of trauma. Some of these techniques involve working with acupoints, energy centres (chakras) and the breath.
I have also spent several years at a university counselling service, working with students (UG, Masters, PhD) of all nationalities, on a range of academic and personal issues.
My practice is based in Oxford (for 'face to face' work) but I also work online throughout the UK. I am a registered member of BACP and abide by their ethical guidelines.
