Home About Me My Experience What is Psychotherapy
 
     

A bit more about me

My professional career began with my nurse training within the field of Mental Health; this experience opened my eyes to the reality that at the root of much so called mental illness are emotional and psychological factors such as traumatic childhood experiences and emotional conflict.

I began to realise that ‘papering over the cracks’ with advice or medication was to fail to do justice to these difficulties. (I am not however, opposed to the use of medication, as this can work well alongside therapy).

These reflections aroused an interest in psychological or talking therapies, the end result of which was my training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy – more on this later.
