About me and my therapy practice
I work integratively, which means I use a variety of techniques, mainly from a humanistic approach, i.e. I work with the person first , and their relationship with a diagnosis or condition. I trained using Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, creative and Gestalt techniques.
I am LGBTQ Affirmative in my approach. I am aware of how people are stigmatised and marginalised therefore sensitive to these issues in my approach. I work using mainly short-term interventions however clients may sometimes require longer-term support from me.
I work with individuals and couples both face-to-face and on the internet.
I have worked for many years in agencies where i provided therapy for LGBTQ clients, peoples living with HIV and other long-term conditions. In my private practice i have worked with clients presenting these issues too.. The work may sometimes require longer support from me obviously with clients needs in mind. The focus of the work may not necessarily be associated with the condition.
From my work in London i have experience and awareness of peoples from different ethnic backgrounds too.
Additionally, from my ten years experience in the NHS I am able to support clients showing Mental Health issues. This includes persons living with disabilities and generally all peoples who have concerns which may be uncomfortable to talk about.
My first session
In the first meeting with me i will provide a safe confidential space for you to tell me about yourself. This will be your opportunity to experience how we might work together, and identify what support I can provide you with. ideally looking at the focus of the work.
I will take this opportunity to ask questions to help us identify aspects of your past life and present which may be relevant to the work, and to identify if i am best suited to support you.
