Zoe Edwards Psychotherapy

UKCP BA(hons)

I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist accredited by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) working from my consulting room in Newport, near Saffron Walden, Essex. I work mainly with adults but have experience of working with younger people from the age of 16yrs. The type of therapy I offer can be long term or short-term depending on what is felt needed or possible at the start.

There are many reasons why people decide to start therapy whether it is about relationship issues, anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, abuse, or loss, seeking therapy can be the first step towards finding the courage to face your difficulties in the safety and neutrality of a therapeutic space.

Zoe Edwards Psychotherapist

My approach to therapy is to work both with what is happening in the present ‘the presenting problem’ but also allow space to explore any previous experiences or patterns of behaviour that may be relevant to today’s feelings. This can be helpful in providing a wider understanding of what may be happening but also find new ways of coping and managing overwhelming or difficult feelings.

Whatever your reason for starting, you are welcome to make contact with me via the contact page to ask any questions you may have.

Psychotherapy - Helping people to manage and understand a variety of emotional difficulties


My psychoanalytic psychotherapy training took place with The Cambridge Society for Psychotherapy (4+ years). Prior to that I undertook two years training at The Chelmsford Counselling Foundation in psychodynamic counselling. I have a BA(hons) in Sociology and have other relevant qualifications obtained in my previous work as a probation officer such as CBT training, working with substance abuse and risk assessment.
I have worked in schools providing counselling for students aged 11-18yrs and have experience of running group therapy for psychiatric inpatients.

Fees and sessions

My fee is £60 for 50 minute sessions. Most people attend once or twice per week. During the pandemic, I have been working mostly online using Zoom but I am also working face-to-face in a bright, private and well ventilated office adhering to all current Covid-19 guidelines. All sessions are completely confidential.
