About me and my therapy practice
I am an accredited member of the BACP and have worked within the care sector for over 20 years gaining my counselling qualification in 2014 and I abide by the ethical practice codes laid down by the BACP.
I believe that helpful and supportive therapy is a way of making sense of your world and how you function in it. The main focus of our time together would be your presenting problems and the emerging themes that appear within this.
I use an open and integrative approach that includes person centered, sometimes goal orientated, short-term psychotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Sessions are usually weekly and last 50 minutes.
I have a diagnosis of Adult ADHD and have personal long term experience of therapy. I understand the inherent challenges and benefits of therapy. Recognising unhelpful patterns of behaviour and thinking patterns, reflecting on these with the aim of enabling positive changes.
I work one-to-one with adults from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. My specific skills include working with depression, anxiety, stress, addiction, loss, anger, homelessness and adults with ADHD. I work part-time within the NHS and in private practice, I continue to support front line staff within the field of homelessness.
Due to the current and on-going situation reguarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), certain challenges around meeting face-to-face need to be taken into account and these would be discussed before any agreed sessions take place.
My first session
Time limited therapy can last for around twenty sessions although I work for longer and shorter time periods.
Our first session is assessment. We would discuss the possible length of therapy and what you hope to achieve from our time together.
Sessions allow time for reflection, and the possibility of making changes. This space can allow for the opportunity of moving forwards in a healthier, more informed direction.
