About me and my therapy practice
Hi my name is Tasha and I offer 1 to 1 counselling of an Integrative Approach for Adults, adolescences and children. I offer a warm, friendly and safe space (online also) for people to come and with my help make sense of what is going on for them in their internal world, past issues an dhow that impacts their life right now, whether it be relationship issues, to low self esteem to issues around abuse etc.
I am an Accredited MBACP and follow the ethical framework. I use a range of methods depending on the individual needs ranfing from talking therapy, play therapy and elements taken from other modalities over the years, I operate a confidential service. I have experience of working with adults and working with children in schools and private setting.
I have a special interest with working with Neurodiverse people and have trained in a specialist play therapy called Autplay Therapy devised specifically for Autism and other neurodivergent people. I have been successful in offering pre screenings/assessments for Neurodiverse conditions within school settings and have been successful in having many children placed on the CAMHS Neurodevelopmental pathway for full assessments. This is something that I can offer privately also.
I attend a monthly CPD/Supervision session specifically on ASD/ADHD.
I also have vast experience in working with Looked after/Adopted children and am DDP level 1 (Dyadic developmental psychotherapy) trained.
I am currently training as a Supervisor and am looking for therapist to supervise during this training at very low costs.
At this time I work privately from a room at home which is completely private. It is warm and inviting space but is also equipped to work in a playful way with Children and Young people (CYP). I also offer online services which enables me to work with anyone regardless of their location. Again this can work with CYP as I can adapt play techniques to work online.
For some people face to face in the room can feel too intense and this is where online sessions can be useful. But I also offer a Walk & Talk Service for clients who again may find sitting in a room or being online difficult.
I try to be creative in my approach to working with people and to make therapy as accessible to all as possible, so will where possible be flexible in my approach to sessions, to find something that works for the client.
My first session
When you 1st get in touch with me I offer a 20 minute free get to know me meeting either on the phone or via online services. If you feel that i could be someone you work with then we would plan for a 90 minute assessment either in person or online. This session will be different to future therapy sessions as it will involve more questions as I take a a full client history, think about what you feel you want to discuss, what is impacting your life right now, difficulties, positves but also maybe changes you may want to make. We will discuss boundaries and confidentiality sometimes known as Contracting.
There is no obligation after this session to book more sessions I'm happy for you to process the assessment, have a think about how it went and if this is the right time for you and if I am the right person, there is no pressure.
If you feel you want to proceed we will the plan and book in how many sessions you may initially want, set a time to review this and a time and day that works for us both.
