After having worked for 20 years in different settings like schools, Counselling Centres providers and residentials Addiction Rehabilitations settings (12 years) I have retrained as a Supervisor and am now re-opening a part-time Private Practice which I will run on line or from home ( face to face, provided it is safe to do so with regards to the Pandemic). My available hours are Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1pm to 7.30pm. I will offer six weeks focused therapy which can be extended if need be.
About me and my therapy practice
My initial training is Psychodynamic but I now work in an integrative way with using elements of CBT and also my knowledge of the 12 Steps Program which I used when I was working with Addiction in Treatment Centres. I like to work creatively and sometimes use elements of 'Creative Art' to help in the expression of feelings when words are not enough! In the recent past years I worked especially with families of addicts and the problem of Co-Dependency helping clients to focus more on themselves than their addiction affected family member.
My Psychodynamic training very much informs the way I work with my clients, taking into account the past childhood and how it might inform the present problems. My work is based on the Therapeutic Relationship and the Therapeutic Alliance. When I work with the 12 Steps Program I focus more on the behaviour and goal achieving, however one way can inform the other and I work in an integrative way. I completed a training to become a Supervisor just before the start of the Pandemic and had several hours of practice during the six months course, therefore I am happy to also offer some Supervision hours.
