About me and my therapy practice

I am a UKCP registered Clinical Psychotherapist with BACP Accreditation using Person Centred and Transactional Analysis therapies. I have an Msc in psychotherapy and a PGCD in counselling. I am also a supervisor and trainer.

I offer the first session for free 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 are over 18 years including couples groupwork and family work. Evening and weekend appointments are available.

My elegant and safe practice rooms are in Leamington Spa. Accessible from the Warwick and Coventry Universities, and near to major employers.

I believe in the basic principles of Transactional Analysis, everyone has worth, everyone can think and everyone makes decisions about themselves and their lives that can be remade in the here and now. I offer the opportunity to explore your potential through therapy in a confidential, supportive and safe environment. I will work directly with you in the "here-and-now" to establish an equal working relationship and help to provide you with day-to-day tools to finding constructive and creative solutions to your problems.

The main TA concepts that we'll use during our work are that you are able to think clearly and develop new options and outcomes to your problems. TA will help us to look at how we often re-play childhood strategies in grown-up life, even when these produce results which are self-defeating or painful.

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.
