About therapy

Making a decision to start psychotherapy is a brave and positive move towards identifying the roots of your problems, lifting confusion, achieving lasting psychological change and increasing your life satisfaction.

The therapeutic relationship we build together is essential and it starts when we meet for an initial consultation, which is an opportunity to talk about your difficulties, and to explore some of your life history. This meeting will enable me to understand your needs and will allow me to share with you my professional opinion as to what is the best way forward for you. If we agree to work together, following your initial consultation, I will see you on a weekly basis, at the same time each week. This consistency and regularity of sessions is an important aspect of the therapy process.

I offer a long-term, open-ended psychodynamic psychotherapy and also a short-term therapeutic approach, in which I agree with the client or couple on the specific focus of our work together.
