About me and my therapy practice
I am a Retired Mental Health Nurse and Practising Senior Psychotherapist with over 39 years experience of working within the National Health Service. I have also served 4 years with the Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps prior to my NHS work. I am currently registered with NHS Professionals as a Tier2 Covid 19 Contact Tracer. I also run my own Private Practice as a Psychotherapist and CAT skills Therapist with a special interest in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Trauma, Sexual Abuse, Harm Minimisation, Relational and Attachment issues. I have worked extensively with Childhood Sexual Abuse and Trauma. I receive regular monthly clinical supervision privately for the work that I undertake with my clients.
As a therapist I aim to work holistically with my clients, taking into consideration their physical problems as well as their emotional and behavioural issues. This is an integral part of my work as I believe that both physical and mental pain are inextricately linked. For those clients who have both physical and mental health problems I am able to explore nutritional and exercise needs liasing with the GP if required. I am able to provide a written assessment report for an additional fee if the client requests this service.
I offer a full comprehensive Mental Health Assessment, Emotional Wellbeing assessments and suitability for Counselling and Psychotherapy assessments. Included in these assessments is a Risk Assessment which is monitored throughout the course of your therapy.
I aim to work collaboratively with each client offering bespoke care plans and therapeutic sessions. Each person is unique and whilst we all experience similar feelings, eg loss, grief, anger, sadness too mention but a few, we all deal with our pain and suffering in different ways. No two clients are the same and that is why I offer tailor made care plans. If required and with your consent I will liaise with your GP or other health professional to ensure that you are receiving a holistic and therapeutic experience.
In addition to assessments, therapy sessions and review appointments I also provide between session resources if indicated. I also now offer walk and talk therapy if requested.
