Areas of Specialism: Depression, anxiety
My approach is psychodynamic, a model which draws on psychoanalysis. This approach lays emphasis on the unconscious life of the individual and the ways that past experiences can influence us in the present. We may have feelings, thoughts, fears and wishes of which we are only partly aware but which play a large part in determining our attitudes, behaviour and relationships. By gaining awareness of your inner processes you can become freer to make choices so that we can find better ways of relating to ourselves and others. This can enable you to recognise and change old familiar patterns which are detrimental to your happiness and mental health.
