About me and my therapy practice
I am looking for trainee or newly qualified therapists/counsellors, who need weekly or fortnightly supervision sessions. I like to offer a containing space where we can think together and therapeutically about your clients, your emotional responses to your clients, safeguarding role, managing practice in times of personal difficulty. I am happy to work with counsellors/therapists with a different modality while I can support to integrate psychodynamic thinking into your practice.
The fee will be £35 for an individual and 50 minuets or £30 for a group of two and 80 minutes for the duration of 2023 while I am on supervision training. The fee will be reviewed at the end of this year and I will let you know in advance of any changes.
I am a psychodynamic therapist, trained at WPF therapy and qualified in 2011 (www.wpf.org.uk), and currently, on a year of supervision training (PgDip) with Minster Centre (www.minstercentre.ac.uk). I have extensive experiences of working with diverse age and ethnic groups as a counsellor and therapist, from primary school children to pensioners in various organisations such as Place2Be, NHS and Age UK Camden as well as in private practice.
I have received BA in Theology, MA in Philosophy of Art, MA in Jungian and Post jungian studies, and PgDip in Psychodynamic theory and practice.
I have completed a course ‘Working with and Facilitating Groups’ at Tavistock training in 2022 and run a therapeutic coaching group for university students in the same year.
If you are interested, please, contact me. I can share an article of a case study I have written recently so that you can have a better sense of how I may work as a therapist as well.
As a supervisor, I have worked with a wellbeing and safeguarding professional and a university counsellor. Currently, I am working as an assessor/counsellor at Wimbledon Guild (www.wimbledonguild.co.uk), as a mental health specialist mentor for universities (www.umo.services) and as a lead psychotherapist at CNK (www.connectnorthkorea.org). I am interested in music and community activities as therapeutic engagement.
I have a legal and ethical duty of confidentiality to you which I regard as a central aspect of our work together. I won’t disclose any information about you or our work with others, except in the following circumstances:
I discuss my work with a private supervisor and training supervisor, which will be anonymised, and therefore should not represent a sharing of personal information. I will have to break your or your client’s confidentiality if there is any safeguarding concern to protect you and your client.
It is possible, though very unlikely, that there might be an occasion when I’m unexpectedly unable to continue our work together, or contact you about this. In this circumstance, I have made provision that a named colleague will, at that point only, be able to access your contact details so that you can be notified and given appropriate assistance.
Fees and payment
I invoice for sessions at the end of each month. As payment is in arrears I appreciate prompt payment within a week of invoice date. Fees are payable by direct BACS transfer.
I charge for all missed and cancelled sessions, where I have received less than a month notice.
My first session
We will get to know each other not only professionally but also personally (in relation to our work together) and have a contract we can agree on. You may start to introduce your clients you are working with.
