Counselling & Psychotherapy

I offer psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy, which is a traditional talking therapy. This form of therapy is useful in thinking about and reflecting upon feelings, thoughts, behaviours and patterns that may be causing you discomfort or distress.

Psychodynamic therapy can help you to understand the influence of your earlier experiences on your present issues, ways of coping and patterns of relating. These insights can lead to greater self-awareness, healthier relationships with yourself and others, and the emergence of new ways of being and responding.

It can be beneficial in dealing with specific issues such as addiction, anger, anxiety, depression, loss and childhood trauma, as well as less clearly defined issues such as difficulties in forming or maintaining close relationships, and feeling lost or stuck in life. It is well-suited to those who are self-reflective and committed to their own personal growth and development.

Fees: £50.00 per session

Trauma Therapy

I offer a form of trauma therapy called the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM).

Any experience that is overwhelming, distressing or disturbing can result in traumatic stress. It can leave us feeling deeply wounded, helpless and hopeless, anxious, fearful, angry, ashamed and distrustful. Or you may struggle to feel anything at all, becoming numb, disconnected from others and detached from yourself. And one part of you may feel quite differently to another part of you.  

Comprehensive Resource Model is a structured approach to trauma recovery that draws upon body-based grounding techniques, rhythmic breathing sequences and internal resourcing to create a sense of embodied containment, prior to processing trauma.

It works gently but powerfully to heal the emotional and somatic legacy of trauma and foster a deep sense of intrapersonal connection and integration. It is particularly helpful in working with anger, anxiety, attachment issues, complex post traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD), ‘parts’ of self, phobias, and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
