About me and my therapy practice

With social isolating now being encouraged for all of us, you may consider methods other than face-to-face therapy.

I offer telephone counselling and counselling by video calling,  for those unable to come, (or choose not to come), for face-to-face sessions.

My preferred choice for video calling is by 'Zoom,' (which is like Skype), but more secure system. (Zoom is considered by professionals as most appropriate choice for therapy). You can have this via your phone or computer / laptop etc. It is simple and straighforward to use.

***********************************************************

I primarily use a psychodynamic approach, which can be used for a wide range of problems. It is particularly well suited to issues around relationships; traumatic events from the past; loss; abuse and self-esteem.

I have also had training in brief therapy, (Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy); in CBT; in couples counselling with Relate; and a person-centred training.

I draw on these trainings and all my clinical experience to help provide the most suitable therapy for you.

My qualifications include:

Post Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling - 2007
Diploma in Counselling, (Person-Centred) - 1998
BSc(Econ) in Social Philiosophy- 1995
BSc in Psychology - 1975

About me and my therapy practice

I would describe the way that I work as from a fundamentally psychodynamic perspective - but in a person-centred way.

I am well experienced in delivering brief, short term focused therapy through my counselling and supervisory work in NHS IAPT/Primary Care Mental Health services; and as a therapist in NHS occupational health services; and in insurance, such as Bupa, and Employee Assistance Programme, (EAP), services;

My training at the Anna Freud Centre in Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy, (DIT), (which was developed for brief therapy) has been very helpful in this regard.

Alongside the brief focused work, I have for many years worked with clients requiring the depth of long term therapy. I enjoy both the depth and breadth of long term work, and the challenge and focus of time-limited therapy.

As well as working with individuals, I am Relate-trained and work as a couples counsellor for both long and short term clients.

I work with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, stress, complex loss and long term health conditions. Areas of particular interest for me are relationships, trauma, abuse and identity.

I can offer weekly or fortnightly supervision sessions depending on which is more appropriate for your experience and caseload.

Adults, Couples, EAP, Older adults
