How it works

Psychodynamic counselling employs strict boundaries with regards to the session time-keeping, setting a therapeutic contract, breaks and endings. Such boundaries help to contain and hold the client. The anonymity of the counsellor helps to show up transference reaction which brings to light important information about the client’s past experiences.

Psychodynamic counsellors work with the ‘transference’ which is an unconscious process when the client responds to the counsellor as if to a significant other person from the client’s past. Transference allows the counsellor to learn more about the client’s developmental course from childhood into adulthood. The counsellor helps to create understanding through making the client's unconscious conscious.

Our first appointment will be an assessment that last for 50 minutes. This assessment gives us the opportunity to determine how we will proceed in our work together. At the assessment we negotiate a suitable day and time where we would meet once weekly for 50 minutes starting at the time agreed.

I offer, time limited or long term one-to-one counselling for adults over 18 years.
