About me and my therapy practice

*Currently working exclusively via Zoom or telephone*
 
Hello, I am an integrative therapeutic counsellor; this means I am trained in several modalities, so I can tailor my approach to meet your individual needs. As Carl Jung said, "The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no universal recipe for living."

However, the foundation from which to achieve this is always the same: A strong alliance between therapist and client. I offer a warm, empathic, and non-judgemental base, from which together we can explore the map of your psyche. We will work to repair the areas damaged by trauma and dysfunctional beliefs, shine a light on the unconscious processes which continue to trip you up, and create new paths that guide you towards the best version of you.  
This will be a difficult and challenging process at times, but you are not alone. I got you. 

Practice description

The therapy I offer endaevours to empower you with tools and healthy coping mechanisms to manage your problems in the present, whilst simultaneously exploring the past to aid you with insight and self-kowledge to understand how you got here.

The emphasis we place on these two areas will depend on your individual presenting issues, preferences, and personality. 

The core of my practice incorporates Person-Centred (recognising you as the expert on you and allowing you to be the steward of our sessions), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (restructuring dysfunctional thoughts and beliefs), and Transactional Analysis (looking at how the decisions you made in your childhood are impacting negatively on your present and future). 

I also draw from Existential, Gestalt, and Jungian approaches. Again, it's all about finding our own unique fit.

I chiefly come from a Mental Health background, working with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and personality disorders. 

Core Qualification(s)
Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
MSC Psychology and Mental Health
PG Certificate in Jungian and Post Jungian Concepts.  


My first session

After contacting me, we can arrange a brief introductory phone call, where I can answer any questions you may have, and we can get an idea of how our counselling sessions would work.  (There is of course no charge for this, and no obligation)

For our first session, we will run through the counselling contract and carry out a brief mental health assessment. We can then explore your reasons for coming to counselling and establish the goals of our work together. 

Weekly sessions are recommended, but we can work with whatever suits you.
