About me and my therapy practice
I qualified as a Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapist in 2018.
Prior to that I trained in Mental Health Nursing, Clinical Psychology and Counselling.
My vocational background has predominantly been within the NHS working in both mental health and Learning Disability Services. For several years I worked with children in specialist school settings.
My areas of specialism are: complex and enduring mental health problems, spiritual crisis, autism / ADHD, parenting children with additional needs, domestic abuse, being in relationship with someone with narcissism and other cluster B personality disorders
The therapeutic methods I use are:
Short term counselling
Body awareness techniques
Creative Imagination Techniques
My academic, vocational and personal experiences have led me to develop a broad and holistic view of mental health. I believe that the body, mind, emotions and spirit form a symbiotic system. Working with each of these aspects of self produces the most profound and enduring transformations.
At the core of my approach to therapy is the belief that mental illness, and physical illness, holds meaning which needs to be uncovered in a safe and respectful manner. I believe that every human being is naturally wise, self governing and intuitive. Therapy should be a process which calls you back to your most authentic self.
I work in a very relaxed manner and prefer to be client led. By this I mean that I open the session up to speak about what ever you are sitting with at that moment. We will discuss an overarching goal or set of goals for the therapy and I will hold this in mind and make use of what ever you wish to speak about.
I offer other means of support to my clients outside of the sessions such as information sheets and worksheets, videos, podcasts and links to other professionals as feels appropriate. I also offer my client's the opportunity to email me between sessions if they want to share something with me or if something difficult crops up. I don't offer long therapeutic responses in writing but I will always read and respond within 24hrs.
My first session
I offer a complimentary assessment session to everyone. In that session we will discuss what you want from therapy, what brings you to therapy, any pre-existent diagnosis and any previous experience of therapy. I will tell you a little more about myself and we will collaboratively decide if we should work together.
