About me and my therapy practice

I am a passionate Accredited Integrative therapist, with over 8 years experience in my field of work. I draw upon elements of Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural therapy and Psychodynamic theories. My work fosters a  safe space for clients to gain autonomy through validating their experiences and thoughts. I concisely  Facilitate an explore an environment that promotes a deeper awareness of previous, or current dynamics in your life. Having gained  insight, it offer  you with the  opportunity with therapeutic customised support to readdress and reframe your perceptions of yourself and your past. This provides you with the ability to create and  redefine your sense of self and purpose. I have the relevant knowledge of understanding how to support clients with trauma, by identifying how it is present within our lives, which gains a deeper awareness on its effects on our health.

Practice description

I have extensively worked within the mental health sector gaining experience with IAPT, Forward Thinking Birmingham etc with in the last  8 years. My work has incorporates  delivering coping strategies, psychoeducation support and solution focused skills to  clients within a face to face, group and telephone setting. My  therapeutic work  incorporates  various comorbidities, such depression, anxiety, OCD, Bi polar disorder etc, to adult and young people from our culturally rich community.

Within recent years my focus has included cultural sensitive presentation which has brought about an awareness of the issue towards "Self LOVE", because without this how are we able to grow?

My first session

My initial  contact with the client,  will be to agree a verbal or hard copy contract, which will cover:

a) Number of sessions, dates, times and cancellation procedures.

b) Confidentially and concerns of breaching this.

c) What notes will be taken and how they align with data protection.

d) Commissioned letters.

An assessment will be conducted using a PHQ9 and GAD7 to access client risk and if their is any need for concern, then the relevant support agency numbers will be provided for out of hours care.

Each session will comprise of at beginning, middle and end format,  to establish  the issues through exploration, to set a goal  and then initiate intervention.

Depending on the number of session set, I will devise a quarterly review process to access the effectiveness of the therapy and to revaluate with the client how to enhance the therapeutic work.
