1) Anxious about calling?

Please be assured that all enquiries will be treated sensitively, with clarity and in confidence.

2) Is therapy safe?

At the heart of my practice is a constant monitoring of how the therapy is being received. Through rigorous training and a commitment to my own personal therapy and supervision, I am well supported in delivering a measured model that accounts for each individual's situation. The ethical codes to which I subscribe are carefully monitored by the UKCP and Metanoia [the organisation that trained me] and my therapeutic ethos is " Above all do no harm"

3) Is this therapist right for me?:

I actively encourage people to keep considering their choices and to use their voice ~ My humanistic background means I strongly value equality in the relationship.

4) Confidentiality and GDPR

Trust is the cornerstone of effective therapy. I treat confidentiality very seriously and will outline my legal obligations, responsibilities and commitments during our initial contact to ensure a full understanding around this issue.

My theoretical perspective:

I describe my approach as relational. I have a warm open style that facilitates the therapeutic situation. Over the years I have added a wide range of counselling and therapy trainings that have included CBT, psychoanalytic theory, mindfulness and mentalisation.

Focussed Help

From the first session a clear contractual focus will prioritise your rights in choosing the best way to move forward. For some people that process might be relatively short and solution focussed. For others, greater complexity will mean more time is needed to fully make a difference, this highlights the differences between Psychotherapy, counselling or a more cognitive coaching style. Either way commitment is key to the outcome.

I see adults (18+) individually and in couples and supervise experienced therapists in addition to examining at MSc level.

I bring experience, commitment and warmth to the work and accept GP and private referrals, paying particular attention to cultural and gender difference, safe and ethical practice being key.
