I am a Clinical Psychologist and Psychodynamic Psychotherapist with over ten years experience working in the NHS as a clinician and supervisor.
I specialise in treating people who have experienced trauma, who have longstanding or repetitive patterns of difficulties, and those who are adjusting to or living with complex medical conditions. I work with young adults all the way up to older age.
I am accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and am a registrant of the British Psychoanalytic Council (see links below). These are organisations with professional standards and clear codes of conduct.
My training is in psychodynamic psychotherapy which is conducted on a once- or twice-weekly basis. This approach aims to give a deeper understanding of underlying motivations and feelings that cause psychological difficulties. As such it is longer-term work, taking years rather than weeks or months.
Before considering this type of commitment it is usually appropriate to have two or three consultation sessions, as an opportunity to think about whether psychodynamic psychotherapy would be suitable. If therapy proceeds, it is at the same day(s) & time(s) each week.
In order to adjust to the changed circumstances during the coronavirus pandemic, I am offering online sessions using a video-calling platform, with the intention of transitioning back to face to face working as soon as it is possible.
I am based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. You can get in touch using this contact email:
Consultation sessions £75 (1h15m)
Regular sessions £50 (50m)
I am also available to supervise psychological or health and social care workers interested in having a psychodynamic understanding of their work. I charge £75 for one hour supervision sessions.
