About me and my therapy practice
My approach is integrative. I have 20 years experience in offering counselling and psychotherapy in private practice and have also worked for a number of organisations in the public and private sector.
Additionally I offer short courses in Mindfulness - a mind/body approach that helps us to relate differently to our experiences. The NHS recommend Mindfulness as a way of managing anxiety and stress, recurring depression and pain and I now offer individual meetings as well as short courses. 6 sessions is usually adequate to begin living mindfully.
There are times when we all need help with life's challenges and for nearly a year now since Covid entered into our daily existence most of us have faced challenges of some kind. It is normal to feel anxious during extraordinary times and extraordinary times they have been.
I can offer you a space to reflect and for us to think together with the hope that this will lead to better understanding, self-awareness and change.
We are all responsible for our own lives and I believe it is possible to move from feeling out of control, confused, anxious, depressed and driven to repeat unhelpful or even destructive patterns in our relationships to a place of making the choices that are good for us in our lives.
My approach is integrative. I have over 20 years experience in offering counselling and psychotherapy in private practice and have also worked for a number of organisations, universities and charities.
I also offer short courses in Mindfulness - a mind/body approach...you may well have read about this in the media.
The NHS recommend Mindfulness as a way of managing anxiety, stress, recurring depression and pain. Anecdotally those practising often say they notice relationships improve and they are able to enjoy life, get more done and even sleep better.
Consultations usually available face to face, after which it is possible where necessary to work on the phone and using Zoom. At the moment I am working on Zoom and the telephone only with a plan to work from my consulting rooms again Mid-September 2021.
My first session
The first session is an opportunity for you to experience the way I work and for me to get a better understanding of the main issues leading you to consider therapy.
Usually, by the end of an initial consultation we will have a clearer idea what the best next steps might be for you.
