About me and my therapy practice

I work with CBT, deep empathy and with psychoanalysis exploring the patterns of the client's issues they are bringing to counselling. 

 Patterns are formed from childhood and with psychoanalysis it is possible to explore the origins of unrest and bring to consciousness what negative patterns lie dormant in our unconscious. 

 What remains hidden often creates anxiety and sometimes psychological disturbances which can cause great unhappiness if not released into the light of consciousness.   

Practice description

I work with empathy and with psychoanalysis to explore negative childhood patterns and their relationship to everyday life so the past is not continually being repeated.  

 Psychoanalysis is effective in helping to release old wounds to heal the source of psychological disturbances which create anxiety and loss of confidence .  I work at the pace of the client.  

The importance of self love is crucial in healing our wounded self and learning to forgive ourselves with deep acceptance. My aim in counselling is to help you release the love within you and help you live your true being.

My first session

I work from home in private practice.   First session I stress confidentiality and boundaries according to the BACP Guidelines. Confirming that the session is a full hour.  I take a written biography.  I set out how I work  and let the client know that notes are confidential and that should they wish to terminate counselling with me at any time 24hrs notice is required.  I work with an open contract I leave it to the client to decide when they wish to terminate counselling unless I believe that a different form of counselling would be more helpful and I would discuss this with the client at the commencement of our counselling together.
