About me and my therapy practice

An Integrative Practitioner - simply put this means I am trained to deliver more than one type of therapy model - I specialise in both brief, solution-focused therapy as well as longer-term, in-depth treatment contracts.

As well as my Private Work, I am currently the Clinical Lead for Psychological Services at a leading London Hospice, an Associate Therapist with a renowned Harley Street Addictions Clinic, a BUPA Recognised Professional, an Associate Practitioner for several Employee Assistance Providers (EAP's) and a Support Professional with the Lawyer Supported Mediation Network. 

Having worked from such differing settings I have extensive experience in working with a wide variety of individuals and diverse presenting issues.

Practice description

As a therapist I appreciate the impact of earlier life experiences on our thoughts, feelings and behaviours as adults. My aim as a therapist is to allow an understanding of these historical events and relationships - to provide insight in to how we relate to others and ourselves in the present.

An underlying focus is to support the individual in becoming what they are capable of becoming. Equally, there is the exploration of the subjective lived experience - what it is like to be you.

With more specific, present-day issues, solution focused approaches are employed - such as CBT - allowing the client to learn techniques to better manage day-to-day life and become better equipped for future living. 

I am able to draw extensively on theoretical approaches - matching the intervention to the individual client and presenting problems.

Couples Therapy is also available as is telephone and on-line counselling.

My first session

Counselling and Psychotherapy are 'talking therapies' - processes that involve exploring feelings, beliefs, thoughts and events, often from childhood / personal history, in a structured and supportive way and with someone who is trained to do it safely.

Exploring feelings and their meanings - what they remind you of and where they originated - can help in deciding whether certain core beliefs, once held about you and the world, are no longer appropriate and can thus be replaced with alternative, healthier options.

Therapy aims for insight into difficulties and distresses, a greater understanding for motivation and change and the discovery of more appropriate ways for coping and ways forward. All of this will be explored at the Assessment.

Therapy can be seen as a process of self-discovery. I will offer you: 

An opportunity to think and talk about yourself and your concerns in a way that you often can't do with family and friends.

Offer a place and time that is just for you to talk about those things that bother you.

Listen to the way you feel and how this affects you and others.

Accept the way you are without judging you.

Help you to make the changes that you would like to happen.

Work hard to create a good therapeutic relationship with you so that you can work well together.

Understand that it is not always easy to talk about problems and to express feelings.

Work with you towards improving your well being.

Therapy can be just a few sessions or it can last over several weeks and months. This depends on the individual situation. This will form part of the Assessment process.

Sessions last fifty minutes and are usually at the same time each week. Couples Therapy is sixty minutes.

Practice description

Counselling Supervision is a forum that involves giving away, sharing, reflecting and reviewing via a frequent, multi-faceted, collaborative relationship; bringing out the best in those involved, enriching, empowering and making work and life more fulfilling for counsellor, supervisor and client alike, as well as safeguarding client well being. 

Supervision necessitates interaction, an alliance, mutuality, co-creativity and collaboration – co-supervising and the ideal of being in relationship.

Supervision aims to be a happy place where supervisees can develop and grow via creative teamwork; a forum in which to share, support and respectfully challenge. Presentation of clinical work will receive formal and informal feedback, with client welfare being central at all times. The space allows for considered reflections on college work and experiences and importantly on any personal issues that may impact on fitness to practise.

The task of Supervision is to support professional learning and development and to monitor and improve performance. Supervision promotes reflective practice with the agenda being the therapy, feelings about that work, together with the reactions, comments and challenges experienced in the supervision. The supervisee and his/her work are central – Supervision is not second hand counselling.

Supervision enables the supervisee to grow in ethical competence and practise so as to give her/his best possible service to clients. It is ultimately a process in which clients are safeguarded and empowered to get the best help possible; something to never lose sight of.
