Who am I?
As a fully qualified individual Psychotherapist / Counsellor and Group Analyst, with many years experience I am able to offer help to those with a wide variety of difficulties. Whether the requirement is for long term therapy or more focused work.
What do I offer?
To help you find out if Psychotherapy is the way forward for you I offer a full assessment in an accepting non-judgmental atmosphere. The assessment is an hour and half where there will be time for you to ask questions and discuss your concerns. Also it will be an important time to get a sense for the way I work. Following assessment we can either agree to work together otherwise I will help you think of alternatives that may be more suited to your requirements.
Sometimes Group Analytic Therapy can be a more appropriate approach to explore past and present difficulties. I have run Therapy Groups in a verity of settings and would be happy to discuss options with you.
Clinical supervision for professionals can be offered either individually or in a group. I have wide range of clinical and managerial experience, as a Registered Mental Nurse in the NHS and charity settings. As well as experience running a range of therapeutic groups in different settings and working with individuals with a variety of complex needs I am able to offer a reflective space for clinicians and mangers who work in a variety of roles.
