Psychotherapist and Counsellor, Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA) (MBACP)
In psychotherapy and counselling we are concerned with your emotional wellbeing. Through talking with a psychotherapist, you gain a deeper understanding of yourself, your patterns, and how you relate to others. This opens up the possibility of new avenues and new ways of being with others, as well as feeling more at ease within oneself.
By coming to psychotherapy, you are taking the first step towards change.
As a psychotherapist my aim is to create a confidential, sensitive, and supportive environment where you feel able to explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviours. We look at what is happening in your life at present as well as your past, to understand how your life experiences have contributed to the person you are today and to the circumstances that you find yourself in.
I have worked with many clients presenting with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression, relationship issues, processing past events and trauma, loss and grief, dealing with illnesses or with major life changes. Sometimes circumstances and feelings can be so overwhelming that people feel stuck, confused, and torn. In therapy we can gain more clarity about where we are at, who we are, and different ways forward.
How does it work?
I work with clients weekly during a regular, mutually agreed, slot. The duration of therapy can be either open-ended or for an agreed time period of six sessions or more, depending on the issues presented. My fee is £50 pounds per session.
I have an MSc in Psychotherapy as well as a diploma in psychotherapeutic counselling. I am a Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA), and a registered member of the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I abide by the BACP and UKCP ethical guidelines.
