About me and my therapy practice
Qualification and Professional Memberships. I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, (BACP) & an Accredited UKCP psychotherapeutic counsellor. I adhere to their professional and ethical framework. I hold full public liability insurance. I hold a National Diploma in Integrative Transpersonal psychotherapeutic Counselling.
Profile: I am a creative and experienced qualified counsellor, trained in empathic communication, meaningful connection, and establishing authentic therapeutic soulful relationships. I am experienced at working with client groups who have complex needs and am capable of therapeutic holding in both one to one and in group settings. My Specialist experience is in addiction, loss and bereavment, stress, trauma, anxiety, depression and existential life crisis.
Work Experience: I have worked in the charity, public (NHS) and private sectors for over 10 years, in various roles and settings, including forensic psychiatric and community based therapeutic communities. More recently I have been employed as a senior consultant clinician, tasked with setting up and designing effective clinical governance practices within private sector therapeutic community treatment providers.
What I offer. I commit to offering you the time and space you need to speak your mind and express your feelings and emotional inner world confidentially, and without fear of judgement. I will accept you for who you are and challenge you on the parts of you which may need help in emerging, by encouraging and supporting you to give voice to this?
My first session
Once you make contact I will set up an initial assessment. This session forms the assessment lasting 50mins. This is to assess your presenting issues and to go over the boundaries and function of therapy. I believe that in this session it is as much about you assessing me, as it is me assessing you.
It is important that you feel safe and able to work with me in order to begin a commitment to therapy.
During this session we will also discuss cost, frequency and confidentiality boundaries. You will also have every opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
