About me and my therapy practice
I'm a Senior Accredited psychodynamic therapist with over 20 years clinical experience with adults, young people and children. I am also an integrative supervisor. My private practice is for individual adults seeking therapy for their emotional difficulties and I cover a wide area of postcodes, as I am near excellent transport links, so please check my website for details.
My work is about helping the individual to uncover and understand themselves and their difficulties; to either make sense of problems or just to find the choices that will improve their day-to-day lives. Often we carry patterns of behaviour or feelings that we have become unaware of and I seek to try and help understand what these might be. I work both short and long-term to accommodate this.
I offer supervision to counsellors, particularly those working in schools. I've worked in both voluntary sector, education and the NHS, set up and managed services for adults and children and can offer consultation on this.
Initially we would meet for an assessment session, to make sure that I am the right person for you to work with. The fee for this is £45.
Ongoing fees are £55 upwards, dependant on income.
Supervision is from £55.
My first session
In our first session, as well as finding out what is bringing you to seek therapy, I will take a full history from you. This is so I can build a picture of your life and experiences. Working psychodynamically we are looking for patterns or themes that run throughout our lives, to make sense of the impact of them. But also it helps me to assess whether the way in which I work is going to be the most suitable for you, as well as making sure that I am competent to work with you, and assessing any risk.
