I provide open ended Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and time limited Counselling.
If you have a very specific goal in mind, we can discuss an approach that combines counselling and coaching methods.
We will start with an assessment to discuss the approach that suits you and the reason you have made contact.
Prior to training as a psychotherapist, I was a Buddhist Monk for 6 years and I have practiced mindfulness and meditation for 30 years. I apply mindfulness in my life and work and if it feels helpful, I can support you to do the same and integrate mindfulness into the therapeutic work.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the Arbours Association and qualified in 2003.
I was a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) until 2008.
I am currently a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My fees range from £40-£70 per hour.
For the work we do together to be valuable, it must be valued. There is an emotional and also a financial commitment in the therapeutic process.
I invite you to have a genuine conversation about what is affordable to you, with a view to agreeing a fee that feels right to us both.
I am generally flexible, so please let me know the days and times that work for you.
Please visit my website to find out how to benefit from reduced fees and my coaching and mindfulness offers.
