About me and my therapy practice
I am a very experienced BACP Senior Accredited integrative counsellor , integrating CBT, Person-Centred and Psychodynamic elements in my work.
Over the past 13 years I have worked in a general counselling service for over 5 years providing long term counselling as well as in a specialist trauma service for survivors of childhood abuse, domestic abuse and sexual violence for over 4 years, so will also integrate trauma management strategies in my work where necessary.
I have also provided short-term counselling as a lead counsellor in GP surgeries for over 5 years. I now work in my private practice in Beckenham. My sessions are 50 minutes in length on a weekly basis on the same day each week and time where at all possible.
I have worked sucessfully with most trauma related conditions, including PTSD, Complex PTSD, dissociation and DID.
I believe that the counselling relationship is a key factor in aiding recovery and so I aim to work with you to provide an appproach and environment in which you will feel comfortable and secure enough for us to explore your concerns together. We will review our work regularly to assess progress and reflect on what has been achieved and how to proceed.
My first session
Our initial session will be an assessment session where I will ask you about your past experience of counselling, mental health, family history and any other relevant background information. I will ask you to complete a small amount of paperwork including assessment screening forms if you decide you wish to commence counselling. The initial session will last 60-80 minutes and will cost the same as my standard weekly 50 minute counselling session.
