About me and my therapy practice
I am a integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor.I am also a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and rapid transformational therapist, trained in the Marisa Peer Method. What this means is that I draw on a wide range of different strategies, techniques, theories and trainings. I graduated from the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education with a post graduate diploma and have worked in successful private practice as a psychotherapist for more than 16 years. I have undergone many additional therapy trainings, including ones in cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness training.
I believe my many years of experience as a Psychotherapist complement and enhance my work as a Hypnotherapist and Rapid Transformational therapist.
My approach is collaborative, practical and solution-focused. I offer my clients empathy and respect, valuing their uniqueness as an individual, without judgement. I adhere to very strict codes of conduct and guarantee all my clients the utmost respect and privacy, including those with a high public profile.
I consider it an enormous privilege to be part of my client’s process and to witness the extraordinary positive transformations, growth and change that I see in them.
Humanistic psychotherapy believes that we all have an innate capacity for, and impulse towards, emotional health and that each person carries deep within, the wisdom and solution to their difficulties. Good therapy is about identifying and removing the blocks to achieving our potential. Life can feel painful, challenging and overwhelming at times and psychotherapy provides an opportunity to speak confidentially and openly to someone who is trained to listen in a particular way and who can give you support and help you gain clarity and insight into your situation and feelings.
The process of psychotherapy helps you make links between past and present experiences to better understand and address your current difficulties. My aim as a therapist is to help you gain insight into your life and patterns and to support you in finding creative resourceful solutions and new ways of being .At the same time my aim is to respect your autonomy and unique way of being in the world.
I see the therapeutic relationship as being of utmost importance. Its basic values are integrity, impartiality and respect. My belief is that in this atmosphere human beings will move towards the potential that I believe exists within us all.
Confidentiality and trust are considered to be of utmost importance in therapy. Clients may share difficult feelings and thoughts with me and, in doing so, can expect that any personal details may remain confidential. I work to the code of ethics as set out by the British Association of Counselors and Psychotherapists. As an overview to my approach I also recognize the interconnected nature of mind, body, heart and spirit.
My first session
The first session will be an opportunity to establish what the issues are that you are bringing and to gain a better understanding of what you are looking for from the therapy, as well as answering any questions you may have. Sometimes we may set a time scale within which to work and agree to review this at certain points.
