About me and my therapy practice

I tend to work mostly with Adults on a one to one face to face basis. Currently in a GP Surgery during day time.

I have a degree in Psychology and had formal training in Integrative Counselling and Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT).

I worked  for 30yrs as a senior manager in the NHS and have additional training and experience in  leadership development; and can provide individual or team support as a coach and/or mentor.

The core of my therapeutic work is based on the Person Centered Approach established by Carl Rogers; and I have special interests in Transactional Analysis, Ecopsychotherapy and Jungian Psychology (all of which I have done extended CPD on). My approach tends to be client led - establishing with people what approach, tools and methods work best for them, and developing the work in a collaborative and jointly owned way.

Practice description

Currently I am based in a clinical room at a GP Practice in South Somerset. 

Sessions are usually for the standard 50-60 minutes; but longer times are available if felt necessary.

The locality will support Walk and Talk opportunities in the neighbouring countryside, which I tend to introduce after a few initial sessions on site.

Zoom and Telephone sessions are available if preferred.
