I work face to face, and on the phone and zoom. This is dependent on the current situation.
I am a trained Psychodynamic Counsellor and also an Attachment Based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist. I have had a private practice since 1998 and I have my own private and secure consulting room in Isleham which is between Newmarket and Ely. It has disabled access and parking.
I consider the working relationship to be crucial and therefore think of the first session as an assessment of both therapist and client. It is as important that any potential client feels they can work with me, as for me to feel I can work with them.
I do not work to a predetermined number of sessions but between us that is worked out as the work continues. Some people know they want a only a few sessions to address a pressing need such as anxiety, others may feel they want longer work, students have training requirements for hours of therapy and some people may just want to see how it goes. My work is tailored to the individual. As well as working with private individuals I also work with many organisations seeing their employees with work related issues and personal problems.
I run workshops and I have been part of the The Bury Practice for Counselling and Psychotherapy since 2000. I am also a member of The Forum of Independent Psychotherapists and was a past Chair and Director. I am an Accredited member of UKCP.
I am also a Supervisor. I provide clinical supervision for therapists and also for others such as medical professionals, welfare officers, teachers or clergy.
