The duration of therapy that I offer will vary according to your need and what develops from the initial assessment and consultation. I offer both short term, focus-based counselling/psychotherapy for specific problems (6 to 12 sessions) and long-term counselling/ psychotherapy (open-ended).

Practice description

My original training in counselling was my diploma in counselling based on humanistic person centred approach. This approach facilitated me to learn that being genuine and honest, being empathic with people in their emotional turmoil and distress and being non judgemental to human conditions are the most valuable attitude in being a therapist. Later on I develop my psychodynamic skills from further training.

In 2000 I obtained my Masters Degree in Counselling studies and Supervision from University of Essex

Supervision /Consultation for clinical supervisors

I am a group facilitator and clinical consultant for clinical supervision master classes. 


About me and my therapy practice

My first approach to supervision is to establish a congruent, trusting and safe working and supervisory relationship with the supervisees. 

The next step is establishing a supervisory alliance. This can be achieved and based on the clarity of the supervisory contract, negotiating the terms and the condition of the contract. I am interested on  focusing on the supervisee's needs from the supervision in terms of skills,  the supervisee's understanding of the theoretical concepts, confidence building , managing ethical decisions and safe practice.
