About Me

If you need to talk, then I am here to listen

 

Whether you have a diagnosed illness and you have been referred by a GP, psychiatrist or another professional, or whether you have a serious, long-term difficulty that you wish to work on, or whether you simply want to concentrate on self-development, get to know yourself better, and fulfil your potential, I am here to help you.

 

Therapy is multi-dimensional, just as people are. As an integrative practitioner, I am engaging, insightful, curious, respectful, and able to design an individualised treatment programme that will suit your needs, time constraints and pocket. Whether I work with you short-term, or whether it is a longer, ongoing type of therapy, I will work to support you, discuss and understand your difficulties, and explore different ways of resolving the things that are taking up space in your mind or causing you distress.

 

Therapy is very much a dialogue between client and therapist. It’s one where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, emotions and experiences within the context of a non-judgemental, confidential, professional and collaborative relationship. 

 

The focus is to work on your current difficulties against a background of both your current environment, and the way in which your life and ways of thinking have been shaped by your previous experiences – from childhood through to adulthood – as these serve as a blueprint for how you live your day to day live. 

 

Our previous relationships also shape the way we interact with people on a daily basis, and will inform how we learn to make and maintain all kinds of relationships – those with friends, colleagues and family. Through therapy, you will see patterns of behaviour and thinking emerge, and you will gain insight and understanding as to how those came about. From there, we work collaboratively to bring about self-awareness, alleviation of the things that have been dominating your thinking and behaviour, resolution, change, and encourage new, stronger coping strategies and more insightful and constructive ways of living your life.

 

How I work with you

 

I work integratively, which means that I combine ways of working from different theoretical approaches and schools of thought in order to best meet a client’s changing needs as we progress together through therapy. I will always work with you, as a client, according to what best meets your needs at a given time, rather than working to make someone fit to a particular theory or way of working. I offer short and long term therapy, working either towards specific goals and objectives or in a more open and exploratory way, or through a combination of both approaches.

 

Most people come to therapy to feel better right now. For some people this means exploring the past and the pathways that have brought us to here, for others this means working very much in the present or towards future oriented goals. We will discuss this together, both in an initial assessment and in our ongoing sessions, to ensure that therapy continues on track and is working for you.

Training and qualifications

Counselling, Psychotherapy, CBT Psychosexual Therapy, Couples Therapy

 

I am fully qualified and MBACP Registered Psychotherapist and I have been working in psychotherapy for over 6 years.

I specialise in working with a spectrum of psychological presentations and distress including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, stress, low mood, bereavement, relationship issues, divorce, transitions, low self-esteem, addictions, trauma, OCD and those with histories of abuse or neglect. I am experienced in working with psychological and mental health issues in the workplace, both on a therapeutic and one-to-one basis as well as with couples. If your particular struggle is not listed, please contact me to discuss your concerns and how I can help.

 

My experience

 

My background encompasses both the private mental health sector, and the NHS Mental Health Trust, working both in individual and couples’ therapy, and includes working in therapeutic communities. I have also worked for mental health charities and as a CBT Therapist in the NHS, so I have seen a diverse range of clients from many differing backgrounds and cultures, and worked with a wide range of presenting problems throughout my career. 

 

I work integratively, meaning that I am able to draw on many different elements of psychotherapy in order to tailor the therapy to each individual’s needs. By working this way, the whole of my attention is on you as a person and what your needs may be at that particular moment, rather than on following a set of pre-determined steps. 

 

I have an easy, sensitive, relational approach, and I work very much in collaboration with each individual. I focus on each client’s present difficulties against a background of their past, looking specifically at their early relationships and environments, and helping them to create links between their past and their present to bring about understanding of why the difficulties they are experiencing may have occurred. 

 

I am experienced in weaving CBT and more cognitive elements into the therapy and find that the integration of all these elements of therapy, used appropriately, can make for a life-changing experience for each client, whether the work is short-term (up to 12 sessions), or open-ended.

 

My previous corporate career in Microsoft has also given me much insight into the high levels of stress, and the weight of expectations, that many people experience in their day-to-day working lives, and the effects that this can have on their relationships both in and out of work, and on their health in general. Hence, I also maintain strong connections with other medical and mental health specialists, complementary practitioners, and professionals from the business sector.
