About me and my therapy practice

This may be the first time you have considered counselling and understandably you may be wondering if and how I may be able to help you. It may be that you have recently suffered a crisis in your life such as a bereavement or a relationship breakdown or you may be going through a particular life transition (retirement, a new job, beginning family life or children leaving home for example). It may be that you have been struggling with something such as generalised anxiety, panic, depression, anger, lack of confidence, the effects of a difficult childhood, a trauma or addiction for a long time and it just seems the right time to resolve these issues. Sometimes the problem can be hard to define but you have a sense that something is not right or you might want to find a way to live a happier and more fulfilled life.

I work in an integrative way which means that I draw upon ideas from a number of different theoretical backgrounds. It maybe that you simply need a space where you can explore how you are thinking and feeling or it may be that CBT might help you identify and modify unhelpful thoughts and beliefs or you may recognise that you you keep repeating certain patterns of behaviour that you would like to change. I have a particular interest in trauma and have just completed a training course with Babette Rothschild, a leader in this field. A trauma could be a single incident such as an accident or it could be accumulative as in the case of a traumatic childhood. Stabilisation techniques and Mindfulness can be really helpful in enabling people to feel more in control of, what in some cases can be overwhelming feelings.

About me and my therapy practice

I have been working with clients for over 15 years. Although my initial training was a dual theory course (psychodynamic and client centred), I am always open to different ways of working and welcome enquiries form supervisees from a range of theoretical backgrounds where the therapeutic relationship is considered of paramount importance. I have been particularly influenced by a number of recent trainings in the trauma field which prioritises safety in the therapeutic relationship as a first step to processing traumatic memories

My main experience has been working with individual adults although I do have some experience of working with older teenagers (16+). I currently work in private practice but have experience of working in the voluntary sector including specialised addiction agencies and the NHS having worked in GP surgeries for a number of years. 

I have worked with individual supervisees as well as running a supervision group for an agency dealing with addictions. My aim is to provide both a supportive and challenging environment where I hope that supervisees will feel safe enough to bring any feelings, thoughts and concerns they may have about the therapeutic process and will feel sufficiently empowered to try new things as and when appropriate.

I welcome enquiries from both qualified and trainee counsellors. If you have colleagues who are interested in reducing the cost of supervision and are interested in setting up a group please contact me for details.

I have recently attended the Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Supervision course at the Albany Centre, St. Albans.
