About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified counsellor with a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I'm currently specialising in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
My background is in Psychology in which I have an MSc and BSc. I lectured and taught psychology for many years and during my time in education I was a pastoral tutor to students aged 14-18. In this role I supported students experiencing many types of challenges and problems including anxiety, self-harm, sexual health issues, sexual dilemmas, domestic problems, cyberbullying and relationship problems.
Practice descriptionI am an integrative counsellor. This means that I use different techniques from different types of therapy to tailor an approach specifically for you. Whilst working mainly from a Person-Centred approach I also draw on Psychodynamic Therapy, CBT and Transactional Analysis where appropriate. I have worked with a range of clients from different backgrounds and with various issues including depression, anxiety, low mood, relationship issues, bereavement, low self-esteem, abuse (sexual & domestic violence), work difficulties and dealing with terminal illness.
My first session
Prior to our first session I would email you an assessment form to provide me with some background information and what you are looking for from therapy. During the first session I will go through my contract which covers what I offer, my ethics and boundaries of timings of sessions, cancellations and payment. I would then ask you to talk me through your story and what has brought you to therapy.
