About me and my therapy practice
Working in in Sheffield, S2 and online in the UK
Hi, my name is Philip,
I’m a person centred counsellor with post graduate diplomas in NARM (neuro affective relational model) addressing developmental trauma and its associated symptoms.
I am a certified level 3 Brainspotting practitioner accessing deeply held traumatic experiences through the focusing of the visual cortex.
I am a certified provider of the Safe, Sound, Protocol.
A filtered music system that supports the development of neural pathways related to safety.
I have developed my skills and knowledge over the years and yet my main strength is sitting with people and supporting them to explore their inner world and what is holding them back or causing them distress.
I use a range of modalities to to support people in their journey to understand their inner experience and how that drives their difficulties in their life today.
I work with a focus on the developmental capacities that support healthy adult experience and how those capacities can be impacted by our early relationships and environment.
I support somatic enquiry into the internal self relationship that reveals the emotional landscape and human capacities related to connection, attunement, trust, autonomy and love/sexuality.
Anxiety and depression are nervous system responses to dangerous or disavowed emotions often driving problematic behaviours like withdrawal, shut down, emotional instability, people pleasing and a struggle to set limits and boundaries.
NARM is the most powerful approach in addressing diminished human capacities.
I know how tough it can be to take that first step into therapy and I also know that we all want different things, but a warm friendly welcome really helps to start off with.
I have my own practice in the Sheffield area and it is set up for working with kids and adults.
My practice is easily accessible in central Sheffield, come along, I would love to meet you, get to know you and accompany you on your journey.
Much love to you
My practice consists of one working therapy room, well resourced with a range of opportunities for self expression and safety.
The building is located in its own grounds with disabled access, however this is limited by the therapy room door which is not wide enough for a wheelchair. The building has its own WC facilities and and hand sanitisers are placed throughout the building, we have an intercom system, a reception and access to a kitchen.
The therapy room is a safe warm space.
My first session
My first session is all about checking in with each other and connecting in a way that takes care of your internal state, so if you are anxious or scared we will find a way to bring you into some balance and talk about what you need. we will also do some contracting around confidentiality and GDPR, most importantly we will explore your goals and strengths and create a picture of what causes you problems and what you would like to change.
We will explore our therapeutic contact and see what you really want for yourself, we will establish some boundaries around your therapy and what it will look like.
