About me and my therapy practice
I am an accredited psychotherapist with the BACP working within their ethical framework. I work in an integrative way, meaning that we will use a way of working that will aim to get your needs met in therapy, this could be using a relationship-based way of working exploring your emotions and general difficulties you are experiencing or using cognitive behavioural therapy or schema therapy.
I am also an accredited BABCP psychotherapist using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as a way of working with more short term specific difficulties. Having lived abroad in East Africa for over 13 years, I have learnt to respect that people are unique and that they have difficulties for all sorts of reasons large or small and what may feel easy for one person, may feel very difficult for another.
Currently I am privileged to be working in the NHS in East Sussex as a CBT therapist in primary care working predominantly with anxiety and depression but also more complex difficulties. I am also on a doctoral programme at Metanoia Institute with my research direction exploring a culturally-sensitive counselling model in Kenya using CBT principals.
I have a therapy room at the back of my house which allows for up to 3 metres if necessary for social distancing. The setting is secure and private, encouraging a confidential yet homely experience.
My first session
The first session will normally be an initial assessment lasting for an hour or a bit longer to see whether I can offer you a way of working that will be helpful to you and will cost £80 per assessment.
We will then decide how many sessions to initially contract for but there are no financial ties and we will often review at the sixth session.
