'How do I find the right therapist?' Even choosing the right therapist may seem daunting at the moment. So let me give you some guidance on what to look for so that you can reap the benefits of your treatment from the start.
1. First and foremost you will need to feel comfortable talking to your therapist.
As you can see, it's easy to find a counsellor/psychotherapist, but we all have different personalities and the important thing is to find someone who you can completely trust and who has the experience to help you make changes for the better in your life.
When you call me you should start to get a good understanding about how we can work together.
The initial consultation session will also be a great opportunity to see how you feel about how I like to work. And of course, there is no obligation at all to continue after our initial meeting. That decision will be totally up to you.
2. You will need someone experienced in working with your particular issue.
All BPC & BACP Registered psycotherapists/counsellors are competent to work with Clients in most areas of psychotherapy but it is always valuable if they have first-hand experience of your particular issue.
Please look below to see the broad range of experience that I will bring to our sessions.
3. You will want a counsellor who can help you to find your own solutions to whatever issue or concern has brought you to therapy.
This will empower you and give you the tools and resources you need to have greater control over your life and live in a more satisfying and positive way.
4. You will need a therapist with the right qualifications.
A therapist's credentials and qualifications can tell you a lot about how adept they will be at helping you through your problems.
I am registered with and accredited by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and have a BPC Accredited Post-Graduate Diploma/MA in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
I am also a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have a BACP Accredited Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling.
I also have considerable clinical experience working as a psychotherapist and counsellor in private practice, and in counselling centres in both Tunbridge Wells and London.
5. In addition your session needs to be at a convenient time and ideally somewhere that's easy to get to.
Please contact me for available session times. My practice is located close to Tunbridge Wells, within a 5 minute drive from the train station. There is easy access to plenty of parking on the surrounding roads. Alternatively there is a bus service to and from the centre of Tunbridge Wells every 12 minutes.
