About me and my therapy practice

As a qualified, accredited and experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor/ Therapist, I have worked since qualifying in 2002 offering short and long term counselling within the voluntary sector, the NHS, and for the last 8 years in my own private practice.   

I use a Psychodynamic approach, which is based on the belief that present day-to-day problems are linked to unresolved issues from the past. This can often result in a person repeating unhelpful and negative patterns in relationships, friendships and/or in work. As these patterns emerge early on in life, we can often be completely unaware of how they affect us as adults. In the counselling relationship, I will work with you to help to recognise, make sense of, and seek to change these unhelpful patterns.

My experience ranges from working as a Primary Care Counsellor within a GP surgery; a Counsellor with organisations offering support to survivors of rape, childhood sexual abuse or sexual assault; working within Employer Assistance Programmes (EAP) and my own private practice.

I have experience and particularly specialise in:

- Anxiety and Depression 

- Working with recurring problems and negative repeating patterns in relationships, personal life and work

- Working with the impact of trauma, namely: Childhood sexual, physical, emotional abuse & neglect; dissociation; rape and sexual assault; domestic violence 

- Working with women before, during and post pregnancy, particularly relating to issues which arise originating from their own childhood experience

- Working with the impact of bullying in childhood on current relationships

- Low self-esteem, self-confidence, self-blame, unrealistic  high expectations of self, perfectionism

- Work related Stress, problems with work/life balance

About me and my therapy practice

After qualifying as a Therapist in 2002, many years since then have been spent working within the area of trauma, specifically historic child sexual abuse (CSA), sexual assault and domestic violence (DV).  

As a Supervisor, I have a particular interest in, and continue to support other therapists/trainees working in this area.  From my own experience as a therapist, I have benefited from good, regular supervision, which has enabled me to work with survivors for more than 10 years - and continue to do so.  This experience informs the way I work with supervisees, paying particular attention to the importance of self-care and our ethical responsibility as therapists to ensure 'that our wellbeing is sufficient to sustain the quality of the work' (BACP).  

I currently work with therapists/trainees working or training in organisations in the voluntary sector, but also work privately supervising individual therapists/students.

I am increasingly working with therapists who wish to move into or develop their private practice and/or work more long term with clients.  This has been my own journey as a psychodynamic therapist, and my private practice involves working with clients in this way and supervising others interested in this transition.




Practice description

My approach:

In therapy, I trained and qualified as a Psychodynamic Counsellor/Therapist in 2000 - this underpins my supervisory work.   In supervision, I pay particular attention, not just to what has been brought to supervision, i.e. presentation of the client/session content, but what might still be ‘carried’ (Hawkins and Shohet) by the therapist, both consciously and unconsciously into the supervision session. Therefore, by being open to exploring the transference, counter-transference and parallel process in the supervision session, this helps us to have a deeper understanding of the work, not only between client-therapist but also between supervisee-supervisor.

Qualifications:

Diploma in Supervision - Leeds Centre for Psychological Development


My first session

I encourage potential Supervisees to contact me initially for a preliminary discussion or meeting.  I am also happy to have an initial Supervision session to experience my way of working, and to help us decide if we would like to work together.


Venue:

I work mostly from my therapy room at home, but sometimes in other venues in Derbyshire.  I have largely returned to face to face supervision sessions but also working with a hybrid of remote video & face to face sessions during the COVID transition.
