What is Counselling/Psychotherapy?
Counselling and Psychotherapy focuses on helping a person to talk about their thoughts, feelings, relationships, behaviours and other factors that could have an impact on their wellbeing. It is usually a talking therapy; however alternative approaches are used to support people to express themselves; such as writing, art and other conversation aids. Psychotherapy is a therapeutic approach used to work with many issues including:
•Loss and Grief
•Confidence and Self-Esteem
•Anxiety and Worry
•Alcohol and Substance Misuse
•Interpersonal skills and Relationship difficulties
I am a fully accredited BACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist and have over 15 years post qualifying experience. I work with individuals and couples. I work integratively drawing from a variety of different therapeutic approaches. This helps me to adjust my approach to suit the individual. I have worked in many settings including; the NHS, private psychiatric hospitals and various charities. Twelve years have been spent specialising in working with clients with brain injury at Headway East London and for the NHS.
I draw from psychological theories including; psychodynamic; systemic; interpersonal; Cognitive behavioural and Neuropsychology (Knowledge of brain injury including cognitive and physical affects). I offer both short term and long term therapy. I see the relationship as a key component of the therapeutic work but theory informs my understanding. Theory helps us to think together about life experiences and the possible links to current difficulties/patterns. Theoretical knowledge also provides helpful strategies which can be utilised outside of therapy to empower you in difficult situations. I also provide a psycho-educational approach, as many people feel a huge sense of relief when they can make sense of the symptoms. For me, the most important part of therapy is to experience a supportive and confidential space where you can be heard and not judged. This provides the foundation for working together to gain understanding and insight into problems and begin to think about solutions.
If you would like to talk about the possibility of counselling/psychotherapy we can book an initial consultation. During the initial consultation we will speak about the difficulties you might be facing and the kinds of therapy you might find helpful. This gives you the opportunity to meet with me and ask questions and to see if you feel comfortable when speaking with me. It can be anxiety provoking when beginning the therapeutic process but it can also be a very rewarding and helpful experience.
