I have worked as a Psychological Therapist in and around Gloucestershire with adults, children and young people since qualifying in 2009.
My background has been working in mental ill health both in nursing and supporting adults back into employment. This work took me into my training to work as a therapist.
I feel the role of a therapist is to explore what is going on in a persons life to cause them psychological distress. Therapists are trained to look beyond the presenting problems to explore possible underlining causes and to equip clients with the resources or "tools" so they can understand themselves to then improve their personal situation.
I work with adults, couples, children and young people drawing on a range of therapy interventions to suit individual client need after all we are all unique, individual with different values, beliefs and experiences.
Appointments can be offered at various times that include evenings and weekends. Sessions last for 50 mins to 1 hour and can be weekly or fortnightly to suit.
I am a member of the BACP and work to their ethical framework. I have an enhanced CRB and professional liability insurance. I also work with EAP provider (Employment Assisted Provider) and work together with other employers on job retention for those struggling with mental ill health and wellbeing in the workplace.
