Hi, I am Clinical Lead and Directors at Rutland House Counselling and Psychotherapy Ltd (RHCP), a private therapy service based in the heart of Leicester city (Bowling Green Street). I offer private therapy myself, however RHCP hosts a team of Psychotherapists and Counsellors offering tailor-made therapy for Adults, Children, Families, Couples and Businesses in a comfortable and attractive practice and location . Being in the city centre the practice is easily accessible via all forms of transport and there is plenty of local parking. To see the practice website please visit our website.
WE OFFER REMOTE THERAPY OPTIONS SO YOU CAN ACCESS THERAPY FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME, OR COME ALONG TO OUR PREMISES FOR FACE-TO-FACE CONSULTATIONS.
Our fees range per session depending on the service you require and which therapist you see.
I have provided some details about how I work, however if you would like to see more information about my team or are unsure which therapist is right for you, I'd be happy to help you choose from our list of qualified practitioners which is displayed on our website: www.rhcp.org.uk
I am an experienced and compassionate Therapist & DBT Practitioner and specialise in working with Personality Disorder, ADHD, Autism and Complex Trauma. There are a great many cross overs in the presentation of these complex presentations and therefore I focus on offering therapy that targets the symptoms of emotional hypersensitivity and neurodiversity moreover the diagnosis per se.
I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and am a member of the Society for DBT (SfDBT).
How I work
I offer DBT informed psychotherapy on an individual basis as well as a fully adherent DBT service that includes a group component.
Individual psychotherapy involves traditional talking therapy, exploring why an individual may think, feel and behave the way they do in order to promote insight and change. I integrate a lot of practical skills to support resilience in the immediate term.
Fully adherent DBT is suited to individuals who present with significant risk factors such as suicidality, self harm, and addictions, and dysfunctional relationships. This is an intensive and specialist service.
I also offer services for family and friends of those who struggle with severe and enduring mental health problems by means of coaching.
I am a qualified Clinical supervisor, so if you are a trainee or experienced therapist looking for a supervisor please see my supervision profile for more information. I also offer supervision for health and social care organisations.
