Attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapy

Sometimes the sharing of a life experience with a psychotherapist enables a person to make important decisions with clarity and achieve a balance in their life. For some people, longer-term therapy will be necessary in order to gain deeper insight and a fuller understanding of themselves.

What can assist in this experiential process is the deepening and expanding of core emotions which in time enlivens the relationship to self and to the therapist, leading to more meaningful connections within couple, family and colleague relationships.

Whether the need for support is due to depression, anxiety, stress, disordered eating, infertility, bereavement, relationship difficulties, tension between professional and personal life, the transition from one stage of life to another, including the process of ageing - and for any life crisis - I am available to discuss whatever might be helpful.

I aim to provide a secure base, from which an individual is invited to explore their relationships, with an awareness of differing spiritual and cultural needs and equally of feelings about separation and loss and how these may impact on their life. At its best perhaps what a psychotherapist offers a person is a little of what was needed emotionally in their past, here and now in their present.

As a psychotherapist, I work intuitively and empathically alongside a person exploring the meaning of their experience as an individual, within family and other significant relationships, or in their professional life. Whether a person is suffering through to the expression of joy and of love. With particular attention to how the therapy relationship between therapist and their patient is drawn to a close.
