Do you feel you could use some time to think about what's going on for you?
Psychotherapy and counselling can help if you're at a point where you can't see the wood for the trees.
If you're looking for online psychotherapy and counselling, I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist offering therapy via Zoom or Skype, based in central Cambridge if it is possible to meet in person. Please contact me to check availability if you would like to give yourself the chance to speak freely about whatever is on your mind. Please email to check if we can arrange an initial online consultation to see if it might be interesting to work together.
If after having had a chance to think about it, you decide to continue, we would meet online for 50 minutes once a week, or more often, for as long as it is useful to you. Please get in touch to check availability of daytime and evening appointments on Zoom or Skype. We can have a conversation about what would be affordable for you, to make sure psychoanalytic psychotherapy is available to you. I am based in central Cambridge if you would prefer to meet face-to-face, as well as offering online psychotherapy and counselling via Zoom or Skype.
Psychoanalytic psychotherapy can be a way to help you think about what might be going on for you, especially during stressful times when there are often more obvious possibilities for change. To have a neutral space to think, and perhaps most importantly, hear yourself think, can make a positive difference to you, and eventually, those around you. In this way, talking and feeling listened to, even if only during a brief stretch of counselling or more open-ended psychotherapy, can subtly and profoundly change the course of a life.
Please let me know any access requirements when you email or call for psychotherapy online and / or in central Cambridge
I trained at The Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis in London and hold UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) membership, with more than seven years’ experience of working one-to-one with people through Mind in Cambridgeshire (now CPSL Mind) and at SHP (Single Homeless Project) in London, as well as at The Cogwheel Trust and at Salus Wellness in Cambridge. Some of the people I have worked with have come to therapy to talk about anxiety and depression having had experience of bereavement and other life-changing losses, sexual abuse, chronic health problems, alcohol and drug addiction, and loneliness.
I have some understanding of the particular pressures that can be associated with living in Cambridge, and with academic life in general, often away from family support and important relationships, sometimes alongside issues around migration or with a sense of isolation. I offer what can be thought of as contemporary psychoanalytic psychotherapy, with curiosity about ideas around gender, sexuality, racialised identity, family origins, and diverse abilities.
Please do get in touch with me by emailing to check availability if you would like an initial consultation to see if it might be interesting to work together. An initial consultation will be 50 minutes and we can arrange a fair fee depending on personal circumstances, to ensure affordable psychotherapy and counselling is available to you. Initial consultations will be online via Skype or Zoom and then we may be able to meet in person in central Cambridge or continue to meet online, once weekly or more often, if that is agreed to be useful for the work.

I believe that talking with a therapist can help to feel less stress while exploring anxiety and depression. Therapy can help alleviate feelings associated with isolation and loneliness, particularly in these very difficult times when relationships may be under strain while living with concerns about health and financial wellbeing, and possible bereavement. We need to remain alive to preoccupations with addiction and other unhealthy coping mechanisms that can be more prevalent with the fear and reality of abuse and resurfacing of trauma at times like these.
Whether you think you might like to try short term counselling or open ended psychoanalytic psychotherapy, we can meet online to think about what is on your mind and discuss what would be affordable for you. Once we have found a time that works, I will send you a link to meet online on Zoom or arrange to call on Skype, and once we have had time to think about it, then it might be possible to meet for psychotherapy in a quiet room in central Cambridge, easily accessible from Cambridgeshire and surrounding areas, or continue online.
If you would like to arrange an initial meeting over Skype or Zoom, please send me a message through the contact page and I will respond within 24 hours.
