8 Years Experience

Hi, I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor, my core training being psychodynamic which means I am interested in exploring how your formative years' experiences may have shaped the way you approach life now. My further counselling training covers a range of approaches including CBT and compassion focused therapy and also the principles of Internal Family Systems which many clients find a useful way of exploring issues. This has allowed me to develop an integrative approach that is tailored to my clients' individual needs. I also have a degree in Psychology.

I believe strongly in the quality of the therapeutic relationship and work in a relational way which helps my clients to relax and engage fully with me in the sessions. I have a deep respect for the trust my clients place in me when sharing intensely personal issues and I offer a totally non-judgmental and safe, confidential space to explore whatever my clients want to bring. I am experienced in working for charities, in private practice and in the NHS as a Psychological Therapist with a very wide range of clients between 14-90. I have a particular interest in trauma and currently provide assessment of and therapy for survivors of sexual abuse for a local charity and manage their national online counselling service.

I also however believe strongly in supporting clients who need help to manage sex offending issues and am a registered therapist with StopSO (Specialist Organisation for the Prevention of Sex Offending) and provide counselling for co nvicted sex offenders via Circles South East. If you have been arrested or convicted of a sex offence or are struggling to manage inappropriate thoughts and feelings, online porn addiction or other paraphilias and need help to understand and manage your behaviours, I can offer a safe space and specialist training to support you in this, so please get in touch.

I see clients in-person from a warm, comfortable office in a central location. I am also fully-qualified to provide online therapy and am able to offer counselling and psychotherapy via VSee webcam work, email or IM.

If you feel my approach may be of help to you, I hope you will feel able to get in touch.
