About me and my therapy practice
My professional background is occupational therapy, dealing predominantly with clients with mental health issues. I have been involved in the health care environment for 30 years both in the NHS and latterly the voluntary sector. For the past 20 years I have specialised in the care and support of people, and their families, with Autism and related conditions. I also have a specific interest in working in the areas of relationship difficulties and mental health issues. I am an integrative counsellor using the skills of CBT and psychodynamic approaches within a person centered ethos. My practice is grounded in the ethical guidelines of BACP, BAOT and IACP. My academic qualifications and practice enables me to provide supervision to counsellors and student counsellors.
Types of therapy
CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) Clients are taught ways to change thoughts and expectations, with the use of relaxation techniques. EMDR Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: imitates the psychological state we enter when asleep (a high-speed processing mode). Family Therapy is used to treat a family system rather than individual members of the family. Humanistic counselling encourages people to take responsibility for their thoughts and actions with emphasis on self-development and achieving ones potential. Integrative counselling is where several distinct models of counselling and psychotherapy are used together. Person Centred counselling is based on the idea that a client enters into a relationship with a counsellor where they can freely express emotions and feelings.
