I am a trained and accredited (UKCP and UKAHPP - see links below to check these out) Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Supervisor. I have over 15 years’ experience in London, East Sussex and now Bath and North East Somerset.
Apart from six years’ training (humanistic, UKCP accredited) as a Psychotherapist, I have also done further courses in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Sex Therapy, Addictions counselling and Couples’ counselling.
I work face-to-face short-term and long-term with individuals and couples, for counselling and/or mentoring and psychotherapy. I also supervise counsellors and trainee counsellors and psychotherapists.
I have my own therapist to sort out my stuff, so I don’t bring that into the room to interfere with my work with you. I also have a supervisor, in case something crops up which needs another view, though it is still kept confidential of course.
I keep the first session free so that you can decide whether I am the right person for you to open up to. We establish what you are looking for and take it from there.
Very occasionally it is possible to see someone for only one or two sessions, and for them to feel it is enough. However, it works better if we can commit to an initial 6 sessions so we get a chance to get to the bottom of what isn’t working for you and make a start on addressing it.
If you want to know any more before or during our work together, just ask.
