I am a UKCP Registered Integrative Psychotherapist with 20 years experience of practising as a private psychotherapist, and working at a senior level in NHS Mental Health.
I see people who come to therapy with a wide range of issues and difficulties such as troubled relationships, loss, parenting problems, anxiety and depression, work and professional role issues, ill health, and eating difficulties. Over a number of years, I have been working therapeutically to support parents with children with additional needs.
It can be a difficult first step to make contact with a therapist or counsellor, but if you would like to discuss this further on the telephone, then please get in touch with me. If you then decide to come for an initial assessment, this will give you the opportunity to talk confidentiality with me about what is troubling you and how therapy could help you. A therapy session lasts for 50 minutes.
As an Integrative psychotherapist I work both long term and short term with clients. This model of therapy is based on a holistic view of the person, in terms of their feelings, behaviour, thinking patterns, physical health, and their family and cultural background. It also draws upon more than one modality depending on the needs and difficulties that the client brings.
Over many years, I have also been a Training Psychotherapist for trainee psychotherapists and counsellors.
I am also an organisational consultant and work with teams and the wider organisation, as well as providing work role consultancy for someone who wishes to focus on their current or future jobs and career path.
