I am a BACP Accredited therapist (adults) also UKCP registered as a Psychotherapeutic Counseller with the College of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapies. I have worked in many settings including NHS IAPT, Third Sector agencies and Primary and Secondary schools as a parent and child therapist.
It is important to me that people feel accepted and safe with me at what is most likely a vulnerable time and I work at my client's pace to build a trusting, confidential relationship The Centre I work in is dedicated to talking therapies and other holistic interventions and provides a relaxing, welcoming environment and a quiet space to wait.
I am a Relational Practitioner and look at how past relationships may be impacting on the present to help the people I see gain greater clarity about their current situations. I also use more cognitive models and the Rewind Technique to help people to deal with trauma. I am interested in sand tray work which can be a useful intervention to help those that overthink to access their emotions. I work collaboratively with my clients to tailor the work to their needs. With younger clients I use Play Therapy techniques depending on age.
You may be at a crossroads in your life, have experienced a life event such as bereavement, redundancy or retirement or be in need of a space to share what you are going through. Maybe you have felt unhappy all of your life and don't know why? These things can be explored safely in therapy to help you understand yourself and your situation better and to get what you want from life.
