Psychotherapy involves meeting with me on a regular basis for sessions that last fifty minutes. I provide a reliable, confidential setting which gives us the chance to connect and to find a serious focus on your thoughts and feelings. As we meet regularly a process evolves which can help you to find a way to understand your experiences and establish a space in which developmental difficulties across the lifespan can be attended to. Even very complex and repetitive difficulties can be worked through over time.

If you are thinking about getting help, psychodynamic treatment can be helpful for a range of mental health issues from mild to severe depending on the experience and level of training of the psychotherapist. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a robust treatment that differs from other therapies by aiming for deep change within the personality over time. Central to psychodynamic psychotherapy is the recognition that our emotional life is a fundamental part of being human, and that we can all need help with thinking about our thoughts and feelings at an unconscious level during our lives to feel well. It is well researched (BCP Article) that psychotherapy can significantly treat and diminish suffering and improve your mental well-being and relationships.
