About me and my therapy practice
The modern world can be a very daunting and stressful place with many challenges from family, friends, work and society. Psychotherapy provides the opportunity for people to explore issues, understand them and work towards a resolution in a holding, nurturing and non-judgemental environment.
I have been a practicing psychotherapist for a number of years and through this time have developed an effective approach that combines counselling techniques to develop coping mechanisms and improves short term symptoms coupled with a more in-depth psychotherapy approach that looks at the underlying cause. This dual process approach creates short term gains for the client, positive momentum in their chosen direction and ultimately a greater understanding of the underlying issues that have contributed towards the issue. I see therapy as a joint journey between client and therapist and whilst I have considerable theoretical and practical training to refer to I am conscious that the process is highly individual, as such my aim is to empower the individual. To reflect this I offer reduced rates for longer term clients who I work with for more than 20 weeks and for counselling students.
I have recently added the PTSD/Trauma/Phobia rewind technique to my repertoire.
I am a registered Member of the BACP and follow their ethical guidelines with regular supervision. I completed additional training upgrading my skills to a full Honours Degree and I have been a volunteer psychotherapist with exposure to a wide variety of relational issues that include working with over 16’s, substance abuse, relationship and general mental well-being issues.
My background is a successful 20+ year career in engineering management with a reputation for building successful and highly motivated teams. I also offer business coaching and executive coaching services for a very focused work related approach.
