UKCP accredited. MBACP reg. COSRT accredited. ATSAC accredited. AAMET member.
I have been a staff member at CCPE since 2008. My work on the diploma course involves group work, group supervision, delivering training and lectures. Additionally, I train and teach at other various organisations.
Previous work experiences include running counselling services, work within the substance misuse field, young people and the NHS.
I've provided group supervision to NHS and private services for many years. I provide psychosexual group supervision to the diploma students at CPH
I have a daily meditation and yoga practice. I am engaged in regular ongoing therapy and self-development.
It's not easy to meaningfully convey information about psychotherapy or my work as a therapist on a website. Research consistently shows that it's the client/therapist relationship which is more important than the approach being used. Because each person and session are unique, how I work is determined by the difficulties currently being experienced and the desired outcome. I focus on the interaction between the two (or more) people in the therapy room as a guide towards what might be required.
I am interested in what's currently going on in the individual's life and what has initiated the current search for help.
I work creatively using traditional narrative style, Gestalt, bodywork, art, TA, and dream work. I have a growing interest in neuroscience, Ego-State therapy and Energy Psychology techniques.
Generally, I offer 50 minute weekly sessions which may be time focused or long term. Sometimes I do longer treatment sessions, particularly with trauma. It may also be possible to arrange more frequent sessions on an occasional or ongoing basis. Fees are payable by cash/cheque at the end of each session and are non-refundable. Internet banking is also an option but this would mean paying in advance at the start of each calendar month. Fees are reviewed each year and I will inform you well in advance of changes. I charge for missed or cancelled sessions outside of the agreed 48 hr notice period unless an alternative time during that calendar week is agreed.
