About me and my therapy practice

Welcome

First Steps

Reaching out for help isn't easy and the first step can be the most difficult. You may be in a moment of crisis or not sure which way to turn, but the process of simply talking can provide considerable relief and give you some clarity about how to proceed.

Working Together

This work is all about the relationship, and the only way to get an idea of how we will work together, is to work together.

I work with individuals and couples and offer both therapy and life-coaching from a welcoming and confidential practice in East Cliff, Bournemouth, a few minutes' walk from the sea.

About me and my therapy practice

"Everyone knows everything. This is not a theory of knowledge. You, I, we know everything about ourselves. There may be defenses, denials, cover-ups, secrets, faults and lapses and overloads in memory, but we know we are the ultimate source."

John M. Shlien


Being a therapist can be exhausting, frustrating, inspiring, and heart-breaking and this can all be in one session. It is important that we don’t hide from or deny these emotions, we are not robots, nor should we aim to be so. Supervision provides a safe, compassionate and confidential space to voice our concerns and frustrations, confusions and our times of simply ‘not knowing’. It gives us space to look these emotions, to reflect on whether these are feelings of the moment or replays of past relationships, and whether they are helping or hindering you or your client work. 

As a humanistic integrative counsellor it is no surprise that my approach to supervision is also pluralistic. Page & Wosket’s 2001 Cyclical model offers a clear yet comprehensive breakdown of what goes on in the room, gives space for the therapist to emotionally process their client work, and, if necessary, look at the shadow side of their practice. And Hawkins & Shohet’s Seven Eyed works well when we want to focus or isolate on one aspect of therapy, whether that is interventions used, or on one of the relational dynamics that shape both client work and supervision.

For me personally a key aspect of supervision is moving beyond the surface level of exchanges with clients and starting to explore those deeper, murkier motivations and stories we tell ourselves that shape us as a therapist.

My first session

As with personal therapy, whether we decide to work together will normally come down to the relationship. We’ve all had clients who seem such a good fit on paper, never to return after one session and equally the most unlikely clients really invest and commit to the process.

As such our first session together is free and you can get a chance to see how we fit. If you wish to continue I offer either fortnightly 45 minute (£45) or monthly 90 minute (£90) sessions. I have a number reduced fee sessions available to therapists in training at £30.
