About me and my therapy practice

I undertake both short and long-term therapy.  I am a Counsellor/Psychotherapist.  I practice Integratively (attending to the client's needs)and also Psychodynamically .  I also use, where appropriate, the tools of CBT.  I am a trained Bereavement Counsellor having previously managed a Hospice Bereavement Service for 5 years.  

Practice description

My practice is at my home.  There is a separate entrance to my surgery and ample adequate parking in the lane outside my home.

There is a bus stop at the end of my road.

Collington Halt train station is about 20 minutes walk away whilst Bexhill town station is about 25 minuts and has a taxi rank.


My first session

My first session is an Assessment of the client and his/her issues. It lasts for one hour.  This enables me to understand the client's needs and whether I can help and allows he/she to decide whether I would be someone they can work with. I take a history of the client - social and family of origin;  current family unit and also about any relationships they may have had or are still in.- work. I also undertake a health check, both physical and mental health.

I consider understanding a client's Attachment history to be really helpful particularly where Relationships and Trauma are concerned.
