Areas of expertise:
I am an experienced and qualified therapist offering both Counselling and Psychotherapy treatment. I can provide both short term or long term treatment depending on your need.
My formal training is in Transactional Analysis psychotherapy, however I am able to incorporate Humanistic, Integrative, Relational and Psychodynamic approaches when appropriate. I have a keen interest in Body Psychotherapy and meditative techniques and like to use these models in my practice.
I work with children, adults, couples and groups and have experience of working in a variety of settings including the NHS, Charitable organisations, schools, and private practice. I have a real passion for group psychotherapy and have been involved in setting up and running groups.
I am able to offer you a confidential, safe and supportive space in which we can begin to build a trusting relationship. Through carefully listening to you and your needs my aim is to gain a good understanding of what it is you wish to achieve or change in your life and then with your consent, to collaboratively work towards establishing and realising your goals.
Therapy is a unique opportunity in which you can begin to explore yourself, the relationships in your life and how you interact with others. The therapeutic relationship serves to develop self-awareness, harness self-compassion and build resilience, enabling you to move forward and make choices and decisions.
What happens next?
In our first session we get a chance to meet one another and for you to decide if you will feel comfortable working with me. A short assessment will help us to further understand what you require from therapy.
Sessions are 50 minutes long and generally on a weekly basis. Therapy is offered in a safe and supportive environment.
