About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrative counsellor and counselling tutor trained in psychodynamic, person-centred and CBT approaches. I offer both short and long-term counselling to adults in the form of face to face, online, phone and ‘walk & talk' sessions. Using an integrative approach enables me, with my knowledge and experience, to adapt my therapeutic model to suit my client's needs, enabling change in the most beneficial way possible.
I work collaboratively with my clients, emphasizing the exploration of unconscious processes and the impact of early life experiences on current thoughts and behaviours. Through a collaborative and empathetic therapeutic relationship, I help clients uncover and understand patterns that may be contributing to their challenges, enabling them to make meaningful and lasting changes. Through self-reflection and increased awareness, clients gain insights that empower them to make positive changes and achieve a deeper understanding of themselves.
Underpinning all my therapeutic work is the knowledge that it is ultimately the quality of the relationship between client and therapist - that's you and me - that heals.
I have a master’s degree in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy from the University of Roehampton, London.
I have considerable experience working in men’s prisons, dealing with a range of issues such as anxiety, addiction, anger, stigmatism, neurodivergence, self-harm and trauma.
As well as independent practice I also have experience working within agencies such as Buckinghamshire Mind and am currently a lecturer and counselling trainer working with adult students, with a diverse range of abilities and needs.
My first session
I offer a free, 20-minute phone/zoom consultation, and you are welcome to contact me by phone or email to arrange this. Both are completely confidential. It gives me the opportunity to hear something of what has brought you in to counselling and it also gives you the chance to get an idea of how I work and whether this might be right for you.
If we decide to continue the conversation, we can meet for a face-to-face discussion in my consulting room (or on-line) for 50 minutes. This will give us more time to think about how your problems developed and how those experiences may be influencing your life today. If you decide to continue with counselling, we would then arrange to meet once weekly, on the same day at the same time. We can work to an agreed number of sessions (short-term) or we can work for longer (long-term). This can be reviewed at any time.
