I came to psychotherapy somewhat late in my career as have many practitioners. In my previous life I designed analytic techniques for evaluating biological fluids (avoiding the need for any animal involvement) and hold patents for various innovative techniques. Latterly, I have been a consultant in computer forensic discovery & analysis, and it is perhaps these disciplines which have enabled me to morph my skills to understanding human behaviour and anguish.
I was privileged to study under the guidance of Dr Dianne Campbell Lefevre on her MSc course in the Psychodynamics of the Psychoses in 2001, and experienced clinical practice at the NHS Basildon Mental Hospital. I have since been in private practice for 16 years.
I work across quite a broad range of presentations which include self-worth issues, sexual identity, obsessive behaviour, phobias, relationships,PTSD and the various related problems that these and other anxieties cause. Although my primary procedure is psychodynamic, I do call on a variety of techniques according to what I feel is most appropriate.
Our first task to make sure that you feel comfortable to work with me. I use the word 'work' intentionally, because therapy involves a degree of effort on both our parts. There is no 'magic pill' and we will need to explore and understand deeply what has brought you to this point in your life, and then devise strategies to manage and resolve your concerns.
You will not be alone n this and together we will help you to find a way through.
