Why seek therapy?
Embarking on therapy is a brave and positive step which signifies a desire to gain greater understanding and find the personal strength and resources to confront life’s challenges, and make changes, if necessary, to improve your life and sense of wellbeing...
How can therapy help?
The benefits of psychotherapy are that you may gain a deeper awareness and understanding of your own thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour. This can enhance your relationships with others as you may gain increased awareness of the impact of your own history and behaviour, and feel more in control of how you act in and respond to situations. At the same time, you may begin to feel more tolerant of others' difficulties and more able to comfortably and effectively manage and maintain boundaries with others...
I trained at Regents University, in the School of Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology in London, where I completed a Masters degree in Psychotherapy & Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy. I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and am bound by their professional code of ethics.
In addition to my private psychotherapy practice I have over 14 years’ experience working in the field of social care, with a varied client group including those with physical and learning difficulties.
For nine years I worked supportively with people with mental health problems in the public and private sector.
My psychotherapy experience also includes work with students in higher education within a university counselling service, and for MIND with a diverse and varied client group.
As an Integrative psychotherapist, I have received training in various theoretical models, which I can draw on to suit the types of issues that each client brings and as appropriate to what they hope to gain from therapy.
However, the main theoretical models I draw on are psychoanalytic theory; Attachment-based models, and Existential/Humanistic psychotherapy as informed by Existential philosophy.
