About me and my therapy practice

I work from home in Putney/Wandsworth in London. My sessions are one hour long. I work face to face and person to person. I engage in conversation with my clients and interact with them to set up a good therapist/client relationship. The issues of trust and safety are important to me and how to enable this in my work with my clients. I encourage and support my clients to bring what is troubling them-and to explore this in an atmosphere of openness taking my lead from them and going at a pace which works best for them.

Practice description

I  am a psychosynthesis psychotherapist and the easiest way to explain this is that I include the spiritual questions that some people are intrigued by and curious about. I  also look at what is causing a person pain or suffering or unhappiness.This often brings someone into therapy and together with my client we explore the hidden meanings of this from present time and into past history-(the here and now and the there and then). We can then explore the possibility of living life in a different and potentially more fulfilling way both individually and in relationship with others.

My first session

The first session is to find out what brings a person into my counselling room and what they are hoping to discover from being in therapy. This includes creating a contract with the client and being clear on fees, times of sessions and confidentiality. I would want to learn a little about the history and background story and any details the client might think important. It is also an opportunity for the client to ask me questions about how I work and any other questions that might be helpful for the client to know about my experience as a therapist and areas of interest. I would explain what it means to be a BACP member and any questions that might arise from this.
