I am a very experienced psychological therapist and have been a therapist for 17 years. I am currently working within the Psychology department delivering therapy in the NHS and for the last 8 years have also been working privately. I have previously worked in addictions and GP surgeries.
The therapy is concerned with helping you find ways to heal distressing and unhelpful patterns of thought, feelings and behaviour which may have been with you for some time. I am interested in the way in which you relate to other people and to yourself, and how that helps or hinders your contentment in life. I use a variety of approaches as appropriate to each individual.
Therapy can be short term - up to six sessions, medium term - CAT 16 sessions which is an average CAT but can be 24 sessions, not often but sometimes therapy can be longer term.
