About me and my therapy practice

Life is difficult for all of us at some stage or other, sometimes it feels overwhelming and unbearable. You may be struggling but finding it hard to identify what the trouble is. Maybe you do know but don't see a way out. Such feelings often start early in life, leading to confusion, anger, sadness, relationship problems and difficult or dangerous behaviour. This is why I work with children and teenagers, as well as adults.

You may feel stuck, yet unable to talk to those close to you, for all sorts of reasons. Exploring your feelings and their origins can really help, when it is in confidence with someone who is not only independent but also well-qualified, experienced and caring. It is an opportunity for you to understand your inner world and the meaning behind troubling feelings, problematic behaviour patterns or depression and anxiety, to help you regain control.

I provide a calm, non-judgemental and insightful perspective. My aim is to build a trusting relationship, within strict professional and ethical guidelines. This means working sensitively and appropriately with all my clients, whatever their age or background, towards their individual goals.

Since training in psychodynamic theory and practice to work with adults, I have had further training and experience in counselling children and adolescents.

At Henley Counselling I offer

  • one-to-one psychodynamic therapy for adults of all ages
  • one-to-one therapy for teenagers and children, tailored to their needs
  • family work

also

  • clinical supervision for counsellors, psychotherapists and other professionals who work in confidential settings with adults, adolescents and children.

The list below covers some of the reasons people may want help but I see everyone as an individual, rather than a diagnosis.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer clinical supervision to individuals and groups of up to four, in Henley-on-Thames or at other locations by arrangement.  My experience includes supervising trainee counsellors on diploma, masters and doctoral programmes, as well as qualified, experienced counsellors and psychotherapists.

My core modality is psychodynamic and I have also worked with counsellors who work integratively, or using existential, person-centred or solution-focused approaches with adults and young people. My supervision training at Terapia prepared me to supervise clinicians working with adults, adolescents and children, in a range of modalities and using creative methods such as drawing and play therapy (also useful as tools in supervision!).

My experience as a school counsellor and as Clinical Lead for a Young People's Counselling Service provides an excellent basis for supervising anyone working in a school or with school-age people. This may also include people working in roles where they are holding confidential information, often of a difficult, highly emotional kind - such as safeguarding or child protection officers, school pastoral tutors and social workers.

Fees: Individual supervision: £50 (1 hour, fortnightly) or £75 (an hour and a half, monthly)

Group supervision: approx £20 per person, by negotiation
