Thinking Together

…how can I help you?

Sessions for Young People

I offer a 4 session intervention for adolescents and young adults. This treatment can be extremely helpful at times of crisis, change or feeling  stuck in your thinking. I start with a one off consultation with no obligation to continue.

                        Supervision

I offer supervision for clinicians working with children, adolescents or families and those in training. This includes art and play psychotherapy. 

Parenting & Family Issues

Children can be difficult to understand at times, and leave parents feeling worried, confused or angry. Differing parenting styles in couples can cause serious problems in families, and sibling temperaments can require different parenting skills and strategies. Sometimes there can be major rupture in a family as children move into adulthood. An ‘outside mind’ can help to increase understanding and improve family relationships. Work can be with individuals, couples, family groups or parent-child.

Pre & Post Natal Work

The arrival of a new baby – or being pregnant – can be a very unsettling time and cause considerable upheaval to the balance of your life. I offer a five session intervention to help with adjusting to pregnancy or parenthood, fear of childbirth or birthing trauma, low mood, bonding issues and managing a baby who is difficult to soothe. Fathers and couples are very welcome, and longer term work can be negotiated if necessary.

Life Cycle Adjustments

Family lifecycle changes can be disorientating, even when expected and welcome. The arrival of babies, children starting school, adolescent independence, adult children leaving home, relationship breakdown or the death of a parent can all result in emotional difficulties. Thinking through the impact of these events with somebody neutral outside of your network can assist with the process of adapting to what can feel like profound changes.

What to expect

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy understands that we can not always know why we think or behave in the ways that we do. The process enables therapist and client to explore unconscious drives and ways that previous experiences and relationships have influenced current states of mind and functioning. This can be very helpful at troubling times in life, and assist with processing bereavement, loss and personal trauma. For any of the treatments, an initial ‘no obligation’ consultation is offered to discuss options.

My prices are: £60 per session (50 mins), £200 for a 4 session young person intervention, £70 for couples or family work.

I am registered with the ACP, the HCPC and the BACP and have full professional indemnity insurance. I continue with CPD activities and personal supervision of my private practice.
