About me and my therapy practice
I hold a Masters in Relationship and Family Therapy (validated by the University of Hull and accredited by the BACP) I also trained and worked with Relate where I offered individual, relationship and family counselling.
As an integrative therapist my work draws on different elements from a range of therapeutic orientations underpinned by Attachment Theory. My ‘tool box’ includes Systemic and Psychodynamic theory as they are particularly helpful in relationship work.
Other therapeutic disciplines such as Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy are very helpful in enabling clients to access their own strengths and possibilities to move them forwards.
My consulting room is in a comfortable airy studio by my home in Ashley. Ashley is a small hamlet near a village called Kings Somborne about 10 minutes drive out of Stockbridge in Hampshire.
My first session
The first session provides an opportunity for you to decide if i might be able to offer you the support you need. If you do decide to go ahead, counselling sessions are usually on a weekly basis. Counselling can be on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period.
I believe counselling is a collaborative process: you remain the expert of your own life and your feedback is particularly valuable in influencing the direction the therapy should take.
