About me and my therapy practiceWelcome. I am a counsellor, stress management therapist and psychotherapist. In practice this means that I work with clients in an integrative way, using all of my skills as far as they are helpful to you, the client. My training is in psychosynthesis which means I hold not only our relationship, but also your individual sense of meaning, purpose and values, as being central to our work.
An important aspect of my approach is to listen to you very carefully, and really hear and understand your concerns. Your life experience is unique and I will not make assumptions about you or about what I think you are going through. It is essential that you feel fully understood and empathised with. In your story I also seek to hear what it is not being said explicitly, to bring out that which you may be experiencing but are so far unable to put into words.
It is my experience that the most difficult times of our lives can become the most fruitful, if we can integrate our experiences, thoughts and feelings in an empowering way. We often need the help of another person to accomplish this, and it is this which I hope to help you with.
I usually offer long term face to face work, but can also do short term work and occasionally online counselling using teleconferencing. For those clients who wish to undertake long term work but have financial constraints I am able to offer some concessions.
I abide by the ethical and professional guidelines of the UKCP and BACP and have regular supervision. All our sessions are strictly confidential and my supervisor has no access to your personal details.
