"the human psyche, like human bones, is strongly inclined towards self-healing. The psychotherapist's job, like that of the orthopaedic surgeon, is to provide the conditions in which self-healing can best take place."
John Bowlby, A Secure Base: Clinical Applications of Attachment Theory
' What is Attachment Based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy?'
Disruption of, and difficulty in early relationship is considered to be at the core of many problems. The relationship between therapist and patient is understood to be fundamental to change. This relationship is professionally boundaried, secure, warm, containing and ongoing.
There is mounting evidence that our health, and social and mental well-being have its roots in early childhood and the quality of our earliest attachment relationships.
As an attachment-based therapist, I specialise in attachment-related issues and trauma. I work with individuals and couples who are finding it hard to be at ease with themselves and engaged and alive in the world; and with individuals undertaking a therapeutic training who are seeking a warm relational experience of therapy as part of the training. I also incorporate somatic trauma psychotherapy to help you feel safe, connected to yourself and close to others.
Coming to therapy is a responsible act. It means taking charge of your life. You'll know it's time to talk if it's been more than six months since you felt good enough to engage with people, friends, family, your work, hobbies...yourself. You may find yourself thinking more about the past or the future than the present. You may feel disconnected and in pain and wonder what is the meaning of it all.
Are you ready to commit to having more of what you want and less of what you don't want?

GPDR information for present and future clients:
On 25th May 2018, a new European Union (EU) data protection law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), takes effect. I am committed to protecting your privacy.
I will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent, and I will not pass any of your personal details on to third parties unless it is necessary to facilitate your enquiry.
You have the right to know what therapy client data GDPR I hold, why and how I hold it, and for how long I hold it.
The data I hold include:
Your phone number and email address
GP name and contact details
Relevant medical information
Brief session notes
My emails to you, and yours to me
Why and how I hold it, and for how long I hold it:
The contact details are needed in case I have to contact you (for example for rescheduling sessions or sending an invoice).
My clinical supervisor keeps this data so that you could be contacted in case I became suddenly incapacitated through a health crisis or other emergency, as required by my clinical will. Also, I keep your email address in case we agree to work therapeutically via email, either as a regular arrangement or just occasionally.
GP name and contact details, and medical information are needed, in case, you and I may agree together on some reason that I might contact your GP, based on your best welfare, for example discussing diagnosis, treatment plan, or safety procedures.
Brief notes are kept to remind me of important points I want to be sure to remember to discuss in our next session, and/or in supervision.
Payment information and invoices are needed as I am required by law to retain certain financial information, primarily for tax purposes. I keep this data for seven years.
