In view of the current Covid-19 Corona Virus crisis, I am seeing all clients remotely via online video or audio or telephone.
Clients are requesting Facetime, Skype, Whatsapp etc as well as telephone.
A few years ago I took professional training to become qualified to work online.
Before starting to work this way for the first time, I will send you a copy of my working agreement.
We need to make sure that it is appropriate for you to work this way. If you are already vulnerable, in crisis or at risk I may need to signpost you to other services such as Samaritans.
Fully qualified, Integrative Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor working with individuals and couples.
My training and experience allows me to draw from a range of theoretical and philosophical approaches including Psychodynamic, Post Modern, Existential, Phenomenological, Humanistic and Person Centred.
This means that I am interested to understand what it is like to be you, what are the assumptions and expectations that inform how you respond to current situations, how do you manage your emotions and thoughts.
In the course of my ongoing professional development I have taken additional training working with couples, CBT; Hypnotherapy; Creativity and Play Therapy, ASSIST suicide intervention and working remotely with online Video, telephone.
