About psychotherapy

Psychotherapy should be a safe, confidential and regular space in which to talk about feelings, experiences and difficulties, with a therapist you have developed a trusting therapeutic relationship with over time. Understanding how past experiences and relationships can impact on current difficulties can help a person better cope in the future.

Things psychotherapy may help with

Therapy can help with a number of issues, such as trauma, loss, bereavement, relationship difficulties, body image issues and eating distress, addiction and many other issues. I use Attachment Theory and relational psychoanalysis to inform most aspects of practice in therapy.


The location of my practice is in the Southbourne area of Bournemouth, near to Pokesdown railway station and Kings Park. The location is very good for public transport links/buses along Christchurch Road and trains to and from Pokesdown. There is parking available in the nearby residential streets and amenities.
