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

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 both historic life events and your presenting issue/s, 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.

About me and my therapy practice

As a therapist for over 25 years and supervisor over 8years I can offer an open and transparent perspective to this working alliance.

I believe we can work collaboratively which in turn can enhance the work with your clients.

I have a back ground of working with different modalities and work primarily from the Hawkins and Shohurt supervision model which enables me to facilitate a learning and experiential process.

Practice description

I work with NHS counselling service both as a supervisor and therapist. this experience has opened up the variety of presenting issues i can now work with, and also enhances my skill set in working solution focused. this in turn helps to inform the supervisory work I do with the counselling therapists.

In my practice in Gosport i work with PTSD and other trauma based work alongside multiple layered presenting issues, again this enhances my ability to work with the supervisee presenting dilemmas as they come along

I take details of your qualifications and experience and discuss the body you belong to.
