About me and my therapy practice

Integrative Psychodynamic Counsellor and UKCP Registered Psychotherapist,  with over 15 years' experience working with adults and young people (16+), in private practice, NHS Adult Mental Health services, student counselling, employee assistance and staff counselling. My experience also includes teaching counselling students, supervising therapists and working with groups.

Psychodynamic therapy is an exploratory approach. This means taking time in therapy to explore and reflect on your feelings and past experiences (rather than rushing to find solutions or trying to "fix" behaviour) to help make sense of the present.

We all carry within ourselves a rich internal landscape of people, places and experiences, which shape how we feel about ourselves and others. Sometimes, what we learn from the past can free us from feelings and expectations in the present which are no longer true for us and which we no longer need.

In therapy we may explore;

• the influence of past experiences on our present lives

• the power of unconscious processes

• the recurrence or repetition of patterns in relationships

• defences or the strategies we use to survive

• the connection between mind and body

Being "Integrative" means my work sometimes draws on ideas and techniques from other models of therapy. Hopefully, this helps me approach each client as an individual and to work flexibly with individual preferences and needs.

I am based in a peaceful, rural location with ample car parking, between Dorking and Cranleigh, in Surrey and accessible from Guildford, Leatherhead, Epsom, Reigate, Redhill, Crawley and Horsham, via the A25 and A24.

About me and my therapy practice

I am an Integrative Psychodynamic Supervisor, with experience supervising trainee and qualified counsellors, psychotherapists and clinical psychologists. I have worked in a variety of settings as therapist and supervisor, apart from my own private practice. These include working within the NHS in Adult Mental Health and Health Psychology, Staff Support and Student Counselling.

I draw from the Hawkins and Shohet supervision model, informed by psychodynamic thinking. This is a relational model, which can be applied to many therapeutic approaches and settings. As a former University Lecturer in Counselling, I have a particular empathy with the challenges faced by counselling students and trainees.

My fees are £50 per hour or £75 for 1.5 hrs supervision.

Concessions are available for students and groups.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to explore this further.

I hold a Diploma in Supervision from The Guild of Psychotherapists, 2015.
