About me and my therapy practice

A warm welcome.

I'm an experienced MBACP Accred therapist, with a degree (BSc Hons) in counselling, an enhanced DBS check and GRASAC accreditation to work with sexual violence.

Together we can explore what you feel ready and safe to share. What does it feel like to take off masks, shedding protective layers that keep the authentic, vulnerable self safe while navigating through challenging or traumatic times?

My area of expertise include:

Emotional and Sexual Abuse

Rape

Domestic Violence

Neglect

Sexual Assault

Gender Identity

Exploration of sexuality

Struggles with relationships and attachment

High Sensitivity

Suicidal Ideation / self harm

Bereavement

Empowerment Strategies

Strength based

Whether you experience yourself as being a misfit, lonely, stuck, anxious, burned out, depressed or alienated from the world, with your permission I will be at your side to support you. Along our journey I will offer my empathy and professional, evidence-based skills that hopefully will benefit your growth process.

My approach

Into my person centred practice, I integrate compassion focussed cognitive behavioural therapy (CF-CBT) that include:

mindfulness, linguistics and neuroscientific aspects. Additionally, looking at societal attitudes and cultural influences on gender and relational dynamics utilising experimental approaches such as guided imagery, voice and body work.

About me and my therapy practice

I'm currently undergoing supervised, continued professional development to become a relational supervisor and can offer supervision/group supervision at a reduced rate.

Supervision
Relational supervision is based on evidence that the quality of the relationship between counsellor & client is central to the effectiveness of the therapy.

Remote Supervision Group

The last couple of years has seen humanity facing challenges on a dramatic scale: mass human displacement, environmental crisis, the unveiling of a sexual abuse endemic, threats to democracy and the latest - the coronavirus pandemic. And during these fast-changing times, how do you respond to your client’s complex needs, provide emotional containment without denying your own needs and sacrificing your own wellbeing? Together we can form a group, build trust,develop deeply relational connections and tools to support our practice.

Practice description

What does relational supervision entail?

Making contact: presence, attunement and resonance; personal experience, values, beliefs & attitudes which are often socially constructed. Values vulnerability.


Concept: Shared understanding of what we want supervision to be. Supervisor as a participant observer rather than an objective expert.


Sensitivity to context: What work brought in, other work counsellor is doing, Issues that might affect individual boundaries and our time together eg. Work, family etc.


Contracting: Agreeing on Terms and conditions.

My first session

I would recommend to book a one-hour introductory session to explore your experiences/expectations and the way I work.

Clients I work with

Adults, Groups, Older adults, Trainee
