About me

The main focus of my work is helping my clients to understand themselves better and then make use of that understanding and awareness to make positive changes.

I believe that every individual is unique and special in their own way, and my integrative training embraces this.
I invite you to guide me to the areas of your life you feel are most relevant for you to address right now. I will then help you bring to light the parts of yourself currently outside of awareness.

I draw theory and inspiration from different approaches, as it’s up to us as therapists to find appropriate theory to help us work with a particular individual at a particular point in their life, as opposed to fitting everyone into just one theory.

The way I like to work is through developing a unique relationship that facilitates an opportunity for you to reveal yourself in a way that allows us both to see things from a wider perspective, and then find past experiences that are connected to your current situation. By feeling heard and understood in a non-judgmental way we can integrate the parts of the self that are causing us discomfort. Through this process we can recognize and understand why we feel the way we do, and find new and more helpful ways of thinking about ourselves and our lives. This helps us to to replace outdated negative automatic thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve us.

Due to my experience of working within the NHS in a time limited service, i feel this has enabled me to achieve at times fast results for many different types of client. After an initial assessment I will contract with you for how many sessions we agree we will need, sometimes as little as four to six.

In order that we use your time well, I invite you to consider what is it we really need to focus on and what your desired goal really is before we start working together.

Also is there anything you need to stop or start doing in your daily life that would help to make these change happen for you, and help you to feel well in yourself again.

Training, qualifications & experience

My main training was through an integrative BACP accredited advanced diploma at the Centre for Personal & Professional Development in North London. I chose this type of training because I believe that different aspects of a wide spectrum of theories can apply to any given situation. In other words, not trying to make a person fit into our training modality, regardless of whether it is applicable to them.

I have worked with a wide diversity of client groups from many different cultures and backgrounds, and I have experience with many different issues, and a capacity to be with the most difficult of feelings as well as help find realistic and achievable solutions. I have gained my experience within NHS Primary Care, as well as with young people in schools via the YMCA, and I also have extensive experience in Counselling agencies such as the As You Are centre in Southwick, as well as running a busy private practice.

I also find looking at what we are experiencing in our bodies can have an invaluable amount of useful information for us to work with, helping you to find what you need to feel better.

Further information

Short term contracts - Solution/Goal Focused Therapy ( SMART) - sometimes we encounter a dilemma in life that only requires an external point of reference for a brief intervention whilst we adjust to the change in feelings or behaviour.
Part of working this way involves experiencing feeling heard and understood, whilst implementing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) tools to reality test the way we are viewing things.

Brief Psychotherapy & Counselling -

At times, perhaps for practical reasons, we are only be able to work so much on a specific issue, we may just need to feel a bit more able to cope rather than completely solve a problem, or there may be something we have not felt able to share or process that we may benefit from spending some time working through.

- Where achievable we might agree on around twelve 50 minute sessions.

Open-ended contracts -
Integrative psychoodynamic/humamistic therapy

Our primary experiences with our care givers shape the way we engage with the world for the rest of our lives. In an open ended contract we can explore how the past is influencing us in the present, through developing a relationship based on trust, consistency and empathy, whilst working at a pace with which you feel comfortable. During this process we can uncover unconscious drives and defence mechanisms that have become parts of our life script.

- Long term work is usually most suitable for issues that have been with us for most of our lives.

- Where possible we will agree to commit to between 4-12 sessions and review your progress as we go along.
