My approach is Psychodynamic.  I draw on a range of thinking, ideas and techniques including those of Sigmund Freud, Melanie Klein, Carl Gustav Jung and D.W.  Winnicott.

Psychodynamic counselling is concerned with the inner world of the client and their early environment.  The approach aims to make the unconscious conscious .  We might focus on some defences you might be harnessing but as you begin to understand yourself real and lasting change can happen. 

I sometimes make use of other approaches.  These approaches include the Person-centred approach. The Person-centred approach was developed from the work of Carl Rogers.  He describes a psychological environment which can be achieved when one is in a relationship with a therapist who is able to sense the client’s world as if it were their own, accepting and having a non-judgemental attitude and being themselves. These values lie at the heart of my work.
