About me and my therapy practice
Online session are via Zoom which is encrypted and provides privacy and security for my clients. Or by Skype or over the phone if you prefer.
The therapy I offer aims to form a supportive and yet sufficiently challenging relationship through which you can gain a deeper understanding of the difficulties you are experiencing.
During the sessions you can begin to explore and gain a greater understanding of your difficulties and develop new ways to make positive changes to enhance your life.
Together we can work to find a greater understand and make sense of your world. Each individual is unique; therefore, I offer and use differing techniques or therapies to personally suit your needs, including using Creative Art.
My Adult private practice covers clients aged 18 and over, and is non- discriminatory. Although at present I cannot offer wheelchair access.
I also have capacity to see children aged 5yrs upwards as I am an Integrative Child Psychotherapist in training.
The initial session is set at a reduced rate for you to discuss the issues you are currently experiencing. This provides you with the opportunity to decide if the level of support and therapy I offer is suitable for you.
I have worked in both public and private practice with clients presenting an extensive range of personal struggles such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, self-harm, bereavement, eating disorders & addictions, age related issues, terminal illness, redundancy, and general uncertainty.
I have personally experienced the effectiveness of psychotherapy having gone through difficult times, and I gained great insights into my own interpersonal relating. Having experienced first-hand some of life’s challenges, this informed my training, and my work and ultimately my professional clinical practice.
I am committed to personal development and CPD.
I am also working towards expanding my practice to include children and young people. Aged 5 yrs upwards
I have undertaken a Post Qualification Diploma in Child Psychotherapy accredited with East London University & IATE. Institute For Art in Therapy and Education.
My first session
In the initial session and subsequently first full session, you may feel overwhelmed and possibly uneasy about attending therapy, it is my intention to ease your discomfort by explaining the process to you. I will explain how I deal with confidentiality, along with what you can expect from me.
I will need to take some notes initially, as there are certain things I need to know, in order to keep us both safe and this ensures that I work ethically and professionally. Once this is complete the time will be yours to discuss your reasons for seeking therapy. I do not take notes during my ongoing sessions.
