Attachment Based Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapist

I’m an IEDTA Accredited AB-ISTDP psychotherapist. And a qualified and experienced Integrative psychotherapist and supervisor based in Farnborough, Hampshire. I work with a range of conditions, my specialist areas are emotional neglect, anxiety, depression, addictions, anger, bereavement, personality disorders & chronic fatigue.

I’m currently undergoing advanced training in Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), an accelerated form of dynamic psychotherapy. This active approach focuses on processing emotional blockages and changing maladaptive response patterns which are responsible for symptoms such as anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties.

As an emotion-focused, experiential therapy ISTDP aims to get to the root of your difficulties in as short a time-frame as possible to enable you to overcome symptoms and reach your full potential. If you would like to find out more about this type of therapy please contact me.

I trained as an integrative counsellor incorporating different counselling theories into a therapeutic relational framework. I believe we are all individuals needing individual approaches. The counselling theories incorporated in my training are transpersonal, psychodynamic, humanistic and existential. Integrative counselling provides a flexible, effective and helpful way of counselling with the healing coming from our therapeutic relationship.

I have 10 years’ experience supporting people experiencing various difficulties including drug and alcohol addiction, homelessness, mental health problems, domestic abuse, long-term illness, disabilities and workplace issues.
