About me and my therapy practice
Professional: I have been a qualified practicing psychotherapist working continuously for the last 18 years, focusing initially on bereavement, disability and depression. For the last decade, I have specialised in complex trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) working with survivors of torture and organised violence.
My practice: My approach is called ‘Person’ or ‘Client Centred’. This approach, founded 70 years ago, puts you, the client, at the centre of therapy, not the counsellor as 'expert'. The expert on you, is you. It follows your agenda, not the counsellors, and does not seek to lead, diagnose, control, label or judge.
This therapeutic relationship enables exploration, reflection, change and growth on your terms and at your pace in a safe, structured environment. It provides a unique opportunity to have time and attention focused on you. A space controlled and determined by you in relationship with your counsellor.
Supervision and support: In a high pressure, high stress working environment, the attritional wear and tear on the wellbeing of individual staff can often be lost in ‘habits’ and organizational culture of coping. I provide high quality, professional and tailored non-managerial support supervision, individual or group, to counsellors and other practitioners in the helping professions.
The Central Psychotherapy suite is available for hire, please see the website.
