About me and my therapy practice

I work essentially Person Centred believing in the importance of pacing and trusting the processing with you the client,  integrating other modalities where appropriate this includes Gestalt (including creativity) EMDR (including Trauma focus) Solution focused (including Strategy based), this enables me to work flexibly with you as an individual to meet your needs.

My aim is to remember each individual  will have a different experience of life events, and so my approach has to remain open to you with empathy and positive regard.

My work with couples over the years has also been rewarding in supporting them to find a way forward that works for them both by being open to their individual struggles and self beliefs and for each to truly hear the other enabling more understanding and acceptance of each other.

As a senior accredited supervisor I have worked with groups and individuals embracing differing modalities, enabling and celebrating the work they do as therapists.

I am experienced in supporting counsellors in going through for accreditation

Practice description

I work essentially Person Centred integrating other modalities where appropriate, this enables me to work flexibly with you as an individual to meet your needs.

I have worked as a therapist for 25 years and the past eight years as a clinical supervisor.

Experience working within NHS hospital environment with staff and some chronically & terminally ill patients.

My aim is to remember each individual will have a different experience of life events, and so my approach has to remain open to an individual with empathy and positive regard.

My work with couples over the years has also been rewarding in supporting them to find a way forward that works for them both.

As a senior accredited supervisor I have worked with groups and individuals embracing differing modalities, enabling and celebrating the work they do as therapists.

My first session

My first session will be about us spending time together when I will gather factual information, ensuring I have gathered contact and medical information. 

A discussion of historic life events about you and your family, this often offers insight for us both, and begins our working alliance.

I would hope that you will have a sense of how I work with you in future sessions as I describe and demonstrate how this will take shape, as I listen and offer observations and summarise what I have heard.   

I will ask you what has brought you to therapy and what you hope to gain from our work together.

We will discuss our contract of confidentiality and what our commitment will be to this working alliance.
