About me and my therapy practice
I'm an integrative therapist that uses my sensitivity to adapt my approach in line with the needs of my client, whilst adhering to the ethical and moral boundaries of the BACP professional framework. I work using person-centred conditions to build trusting professional relationships in a genuine way. I use the nuances of relational work to help the client explore more deeply. I adhere to psychodynamic theory and believe our past plays a key part in how we interact and negotiate the world in the present. I am attuned to help clients make these connections between their inner and outer worlds that can support them to better understand themselves, their reactions and behaviours when moving forward.
Work is lead at the client's pace, gently nudged and challenged when needed, to support clients in making any changes they have outlined.
I have worked providing creative, therapeutic support to children and young people in schools; professional support to adults with disabilities and provided one-to-one long and short-term term counselling to adults. I am also currently in additional post grad training in providing systemic therapy to families.
The relationships built between myself and my clients are key. I will check in with clients regularly to ensure work remains relevant and useful to them, and this is particularly relevant at present when we are having to be flexible and often work in surroundings that are changeable or nearby others at home.
I miss seeing clients face-to-face but recent circumstances have demonstrated to me the impact strong professional counselling relationships can have on client wellbeing.
My first session
I'm a creative and warm professional that understands asking for support can be difficult. Now more than ever, as work moves online, and so much externally is out of our control it is important that you feel supported in the way that you need.
I offer a free telephone consultation to talk with me before committing to sessional work.
At present sessions are online (Zoom or Skype) or by telephone in line with social distancing rules. Hope to be back in therapy rooms shortly with covid protocols in place to maintain safe working distance.
Sessions are 50 minutes each.
