About me and my therapy practice

Finding the right person to work with when we are struggling to manage is essential. I have over 30-years experience of working in the field of counselling and psychotherapy. I work with a mixed tool box of skills and always work with the client to agree what is most helpful to them.

My core training was integrative and since that time I have built up a wealth of Continuous Professional Development which is at my disposal.

Over the past decade I have become especially interested in Trauma and the therapies which may help individuals to manage the impact of traumatic events. I have undertaken training in both CBT based Trauma Therapy and Somatic Based Trauma Therapy. I am also a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy practitioner and am happy to deliver this particular service to individuals or groups.

Increasingly, I place, at the centre of my practice, the importance of understanding emerging neuroscience and the impact on the management of my emotions and ability to regulate ourselves.

My practice is delivered in a mixed way, with some clients working on -line and others face to face from a base in Leaf Health Hitchin

Practice description

As previously mentioned I can be flexible with the interventions I use so that the client always remains at the centre of any intervention. The most important thing when working with anyone seeking help is that they feel safe and secure in the process – that is my number 1 priority!

Over the years I have developed my practice to be able to recognise subtle changes which indicate stress/distress and will actively manage the sessions to ensure all are kept with boundaries which allow the client to gain the best experience of therapy.

I am comfortable in offering both short and long term therapy dependant on need and clients wishes and situation.

My first session

The first session is very much a ‘finding our feet’ journey. I will try to gain a good overview of what the client or couple are looking for and how they will know when it has been successful. As well and work to put you at your ease. Together we will agree the number of initial sessions and the review at regular intervals.

About me and my therapy practice

Finding the right person to work with as a supervisor is crucial. I have over 30-years experience of working in the field of counselling and psychotherapy.

I have a varied work career so can explore with each supervisee what will be most usefu to them
