Women’s life experiences

Where to start? There is so much that women are faced with:

Mother-daughter conflict - The Mother Wound

Difficult attachment bonds


Chronic fatigue

Psychological shock

Ilness recovery

Psycological recovery following traumatic experience 

Insecure relationships

Relationship difficulties


Fractured and chaotic childhoods

Low self-confidence

High anxiety




Chronic illness




Midlife issues

Body image

Society pressures

Pre and post natal suffering

Empty nests

Loss of loved ones

Menopause - before, during, after

Gynaecological issues


Breast cancer 


Relationship to food

Maternal issues

Loss, death, endings

Emotionally absent mother / father (The Mother Wound)


Health anxiety

Traumatic experience 

Difficult / troubled childhood

Some issues are symptoms, some are natural life events, others are linked to deeper issues. Psychologically, we are affected by all of it, and deeply.

Meeting your needs

Its an interesting thing. Whilst my qualifications matter very much, nobody really asks me. What almost everyone seems to be more concerned about is the 'fit', how we interact together, how we relate to each other. And most importantly, do I understand them.

I come from place of calm, thoughtful and non-judgemental understanding. This is priority. This is powerful. All too often it is something that was, and perhaps still is, missing from women’s lives.

Trained in psychodynamic therapy I have extensive in-depth knowledge relating to human suffering, behaviour, attachment styles, coping mechanisms, and relational patterns. In my view, this is exactly where it's at. For example, the psychodynamic approach is one of the most profound methods for helping people heal from past traumas

No matter what, I support you where you are. I’m dedicated to helping women through difficult times. There are times in all our lives when specialist support is crucial. Again, it was / is often absent.

I offer you a safe space so you can allow yourself to let go, even just a little. This is often a complete revelation for women, who are often in the position of supporting and caring for everyone else.
