About me and my therapy practice
I run Gateway Therapy which is an integrative psychotherapy practice. Sessions are via Zoom or Skype.
I have over twenty-five years experience of working in the field of mental health and emotional well-being. During this time I have worked as a clinician for the NHS, in Higher Education and within Adult and Children’s charities. I have experience of working at all clinical levels, including as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor, Clinical Director, Regional Manager, Senior Manager, Clinical Supervisor, Group Facilitator, Coach and Trainer.
My particular specialisms include, working with people who have depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, negative coping strategies (e.g. issues relating to food, alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex etc.) and work-related problems.
I believe that adopting an integrative approach, which combines a range of skills and techniques, is very important and produces the best outcomes for my clients.
My aim is to enable you to become who you want to be by: understanding what is at the root of your difficulties; identifying ways of overcoming these challenges; helping you to free yourself from destructive coping patterns and influences and to take control of your life.
All my sessions are online and are 50 minutes long.
I offer a range of therapies and techniques to help you to gain the best result for you. The type of approach that you wish to take will be dependant on what your particular problems and issues are, and what you want to achieve.
The number of sessions can vary. For example, it may be that you have a specific goal that you would like to achieve and therefore a short term contract will be the best approach for you. It may also be the case that you have a number of goals in mind, or you would like to take more time to explore your emotions and experiences in depth. It this is the case, the therapy would be longer term. We would then regularly review our work together to ensure that it is effective and is meeting your needs.
My first sessionBefore embarking on therapy there will be a free telephone consultation, so that we can discuss what is troubling you and what you would like to achieve. The purpose of this telephone consultation is to enable you to make an informed decision as to whether Gateway Therapy is the most appropriate source of support for you.
This will be followed up in our first session with an in-depth assessment where we will discuss the background to your current difficulties in more detail.
