Brackenbury Natural Health Clinic

I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor and I work mainly with anxiety, stress, depression, self-esteem, anger-management, and relationship issues. I am currently taking on new clients at my Kite Studios practice.
Please note that from November 1st 2016 my profile will temporarily be unavailable here, so please make a note of my contact details now, if you would like to contact me during the months of November or December 2016.
I work with clients who are feeling stuck and I help them to find ways to move forward. My style is warm and supportive and I will provide a safe place for you to reflect on your situation, thoughts and feelings.
My approach is collaborative, so together we will look at the areas of your life that you feel aren't working. I will share tools and strategies to help you make positive changes in the ways you manage and take care of yourself.
I also work with you to help you deepen your understanding of yourself. I believe the fresh insights this process reveals will enable you to make tangible shifts that will really work for you.
Although the way you feel and behave today may be rooted in your past, I believe I can support you to grow and change beyond the constraints of that history.
We will of course talk about your past, for you to express and heal any unresolved pain. However I will also help you to focus on the here and now, and to equip yourself with the resources you need to live well in the present.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked one-to-one supporting individuals since 1997, first as a Management Coach, and since 2005 as a Psychotherapist. This gives me a broad base of experience to draw from to meet the particular and unique needs of each of my clients.
Since 2001 the majority of my professional development has been with the Spectrum Centre for Humanistic Psychotherapy, which is a United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) member organisation. Here are examples of my training over the last 10 years:

The Oxford Cambridge & Royal Society of Arts (OCR) Certificate in Counselling Skills: 2004
Integrative Mindbody Therapy & Training: Understanding Trauma: 2008
Spectrum: Developing Clinical Skills: 2012
I continue to engage in professional development and have regular supervision. I am also an Associate Member of the UKAHPP and adhere to their ethics and code of conduct.
Prior to working as a therapist, my career was in Organisational Development, Management Training and Senior Management in both the private and public sector. I also have a 2:1 BA Hons Degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics.
