Practice description

I have worked for years in the NHS Mental Health Services as a Manager, Senior Psychotherapist/Counsellor, and Specialist Trainer. I work eclectically, which means that I adapt my extensive experience and wide therapeutic models to suit each individuals needs, to aim at an effective management and reduction of difficulties. 

One person in four suffers a mental health episode in their lives. 

This is a shocking fact and the stigma associated with our poor wellbeing can be isolating. My talking therapies can be very effective, some of the more commonly known approaches are Counselling, Psychotherapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Each of these approaches have an excellent potential in the healing process and are often effective. It is a fact that many people who enter therapy do so with little knowledge of how different therapies may suit particular difficulties and personal needs. My experience is to provide valuable insight into recognising which therapy will best suit each individual.

I have worked within Mental Health Services as a manager for over 20 years and have also gained substantial training, skill and experience as a Senior NHS Therapist. My private practice is also based on utilising a very wide range of skills, soundly matching need to ways forward and more importantly, always offering choices.

DUE TO ONGOING SERIOUS CONCERNS FROM THE VIRUS, I SPECIALISE IN, ONLY OFFERING EASY TO USE:

 ZOOM, FACETIME, WHATSAP or TELEPHONE counselling.

About me and my therapy practice

After a very long career in the NHS Mental Health services in Bedfordshire in which I was a Manager and Supervisor of a diversity of services including residential rehabilitation centres including day care and counselling services. As a manager, my duties as an active/clinical supervisor ran for 25 years and enables me in my current provision of services.

I am now in a successful, Part Time, Self-Employed practice, in which I work in a diverse, and appropriate to each clients needs, in an eclectic approach. My model of work may include Psychodynamic, Person Centred, various solution focused models, including PSI-CBT Based, EFT and numerous very effective techniques,  which I may consider is best suited to each clients personal needs.

Practice description

I offer Supervisory services as well as ongoing therapies. My work is effective and I feel that my very long experience as a practicing Manager and Supervisor in the NHS Mental Health Services, provides a diverse approach, tailored to each person’s personal needs. My style or diversity of Models and Techniques are important to my belief and ethos of adapting to any individuals ongoing need. 

I learned over many years in the NHS that although a specialised approach in Counselling may be effective to some, there are times when any particular model may not be as effective as for example CBT or sensitive solution focused techniques.

I only offer secure and effective Face to Face services via a choice of media: Zoom, Facetime, WhatsAp or Telephone.
