Psychotherapy and counselling can help you
Talking and feeling listened to can subtly and profoundly change the course of a life. To have a space to think and hear yourself think, can make a positive difference to you, and eventually, those around you. Psychotherapy and counselling 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.
Some people come to therapy to talk about anxiety and depression having had experience of bereavement and other life-changing losses, and loneliness. I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist based in central Cambridge, so 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.

Whatever you're feeling right now, it might be helpful to give yourself a chance to talk about what's on your mind.

I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist based in central Cambridge if you want to meet in person to talk through possibilities. For times when it may not be possible to meet in person, I can offer online psychotherapy via Zoom or over the phone. If you would like to arrange an initial appointment, please send me a message and I will respond within 24 hours. If after having had a chance to think about it, we decide to continue to meet weekly or more often, we would agree a fair fee depending on personal circumstances, to ensure psychotherapy and counselling is available to you.
Like other therapists in the Psychotherapy and Counselling Union, I agree with their statement:
'We seek to integrate political perspectives and intersectional awareness within therapeutic practice in order to develop a more ethical, inclusive, less individualistic, less hierarchical field for our work.'
I offer affordable therapy for people living with concerns about finances. Please let me know any access requirements when you get in touch.
An initial appointment is £50 for 50 minutes, paid by bank transfer. If after having had a chance to think about it, we decide to continue, we would meet for 50 minutes once a week, or more often, for as long as it is useful to you. We can have a conversation about a fair fee if £50 per session is not affordable. I prefer to work in person, but it is also possible to meet online via Zoom if there are times when it is not practical to meet in person.
We would agree to meet once weekly, or more often, if that would be useful for the work, with the understanding that we would give each other as much notice as possible of any changes, because meeting at the same time each week keeps consistency. It is possible there may be a chance to rearrange sessions with enough notice, otherwise cancelled sessions are charged in full, as that is your time each week. I invoice at the beginning of the month for the last month's sessions, not including days when I am not working (usually for two weeks in the longer school holidays around Christmas/New Year, two weeks around Easter holidays, and August).
