About me and my therapy practice

I am a UKCP registered Clinical Psychotherapist and Supervisor with BACP Accreditation using Person Centred and Transactional Analysis therapies. 

I have an MSc in Psychotherapy and a Post Graduate Clinical Diploma in Transactional Analysis Counselling.  

I offer a free session so that clients have the opportunity to decide if I am the right therapist for them.

I offer a confidential service, using an approach that is focused on the results clients want to achieve. I work with people who are over 18 years including couples, groups and family work. Daytime, evening and weekend appointments are available.

My practice is accessible from the Warwick and Coventry Universities, the surrounding villages and near to major employers.

My beliefs are based on the basic principles of Transactional Analysis: everyone has worth, can think and make decisions for themselves, their lives and are able to re-make their decisions in the "here-and-now",

Everyone has the right and the ability to fulfill their own potential and growth in life, and I offer the opportunity to explore your potential through therapy in a confidential, supportive and safe environment.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a UKCP and BACP registered supervisor

My philosophy of TA supervision is rooted in basic TA philosophy and method. That means that in supervision I see the importance of positive regard and mutual respect which includes the supervisor, supervisee and the client (I’m OK, You’re O.K, and They (the client) are OK). Central to TA philosophy is also a belief in personal responsibility and autonomy. This belief influences a method of doing supervision which involves:

1.) Commitment to a clearly defined relationship in which there is joint responsibility for the process of learning

2.) Commitment to open communication

My own philosophy of supervision is also influenced by integrative and relational concepts (Erskine, Moursand, & Trautmann, 1999; Safran and Muran, 2002). I see the therapeutic relationship as central to psychotherapy and in parallel to that I also see the supervisory relationship as being central to the supervisory process. Supervision occurs in a specific relational context, which includes the supervisor, supervisee and the client concerned. They are all interconnected and the supervision is in this way a co-creation of all persons involved.

 I believe there are three main functions of supervision:

1.) Administrative/Normative – this includes the TA supervisor’s responsibility to ensure that the supervisee’s work is appropriate, ethical and professional in the context of relevant codes of ethics and professional practice and any organizational considerations and contracts.

2.) Educative/Formative – this includes the theoretical, skills, and professional development of the supervisee and supervisor’s responsibility to provide educative/formative feedback to the supervisee

3.) Supportive/restorative – includes the supervisor’s response to the practitioner’s anxiety and distress in response to and as evoked by his client’s material.
