About me and my therapy practice

There are many reasons why someone may want to see a therapist, whether you are feeling depressed, are having difficulties with a relationship or feel like you just aren't who you used to be. Dealing with your problems alone can feel isolating. We all have difficulties in our lives and we react to these difficulties in very different ways. Therapy is a place to begin to understand your relationship with your difficulties and how this relationship affects your life. 

It can help to speak to someone outside of your normal friendship group about your problems within a space free of judgement. Sessions are directed by my clients and I think of therapy as a way for myself and my clients to learn about who they are and how they function in the outside world. By doing this we can look at how you can better live with and manage the things that are bringing you to therapy. 

I typically see clients once weekly for 50 minutes and we can discuss over what period we see each other when we meet. Many clients find it helpful to see a therapist over a few years once they begin to learn more about themselves while others are content to have a smaller number of sessions. The choice is yours and something we can discuss in our first session. If you would like to learn more about yourself, call, text or email.

Practice description

Please note I am currently seeing clients online for the forseable future.

My first session

It is important to feel safe when first meeting a therapist so I suggest to clients that the first client is used to discuss what is bringing them to therapy and to ask any questions they might have about me. It is normal to feel worried, anxious or scared the first time you go to therapy and it might take you a while to get there. 

The best thing I can suggest is to give it a try and see how you feel. Talking about what happens in the room with your therapist is just as important as speaking about the problems that brought you into the room.

About me and my therapy practice

I am currently undertaking the Diploma in Supervision with the Centre for Supervision Training and Development in Bath and am offering my services as a supervisor in training. I can offer you an open, accepting and safe space to discuss your work and development and understand the role supervision plays in well-being, decreased burnout and job satisfaction.

I have been in the field of mental health for 12 years, starting in NHS mental health services followed by psychotherapy training and have been a practising psychotherapist for the past 10 years with experience in both private practice and organisations. 

My foundation in both therapy and supervision is in the phenomenological, what is happening between myself and my client/supervisee. In the same way that the therapeutic relationship is a microcosm of the client's relationship, the supervisory relationship is the same. As well as this, my current training at CTSD is in the 7-eyed model of supervision (Hawkins and Shohet) which is a process model that focuses on the interplay between therapist, client and supervisor to help the supervisee understand the context of each.

Practice description

I can offer you a safe space to discuss your work and what you are bringing to your work, both professionally and personally. I work in the belief that therapy is a collaborative process and that I do not know best. My supervisees have experience and knowledge that I do not and I am guided by Derrida's writings on the importance of "aporia", the state of not knowing and puzzlement of ideas. In this way it is not about knowing our clients, but about being open to the many possibilities they may be rather than the one they may present (or the one we have formed of them).

I am happy to arrange a 15 minute telephone call with you to discuss how we might work together and hope to hear from you soon.
