About me and my therapy practice

My  speciality is Drawing and Talking Therapy.  This is aimed at children and young people, however it can also be beneficial for adults.  This technique works with the unconscious mind and was originally devised by an American doctor, Dr John Allan. 

 Drawing and talking, enables the young person to express, in a visual form, their worries and anxieties  from deep in the mind, that they would not be able to talk about for whatever that reason maybe.  

I provide a warm,  friendly, safe and confidential environment which will enable all clients to explore their thoughts and feelings and hopefully come up with solutions that will make life more bearable and allow for therapeutic movement to take place.

 I always begin therapy sessions using person centred counselling until we establish the therapeutic relationship.  Then depending on the needs of the client I will work integrativly. This may be using CBT, Psycodynamic, solution focused and more. Therapy may be short term or long term depending on the nature of the clients issues.

I am a fully qualified practitioner and as well as working privately I work for anxiety UK and also volunteer at a local hospice and for Samaritans

I provide an initial 30minute session so that we can chat about your needs, expectations from therapy and discuss your goals.  This gives us the opportunity to get to know one another and importantly see if we can work together.
