therapeutic work

My primary task is to listen to you very carefully, to hear your needs and offer a working therapeutic relationship that will serve you to engage with and process your emotional responses and increase your capacity for self reflection.

My role is to engage with you in a dialogue while at the same time being observant of the dynamics of therapeutic relationship and how the unconscious phenomena manifest themselves in that context. I appreciate that taking the first step can be disconcerting. That is why I consider it important to stress that the least you can expect is a non judgmental approach, strict confidentiality and opportunity to talk in a safe environment.

The therapeutic services I offer are tailored to the needs of the individual patient. We shall proceed at a pace and rhythm suitable to your particular circumstances and ability to process the work undertaken. As a general guide you can expect a minimum of once a week therapy. If we come to a mutual agreement to start psychotherapy then we shall work out the schedule of meetings and consultation fees.

I have a limited availability for those who are interested in undergoing a minimum of two years therapy with attendance of four times a week. Students and trainee psychotherapists may be eligible for sliding scale fees.
