The world of therapy is changing rapidly and it no longer has to involve endless hours unpicking your childhood. I believe that in most cases significant change can happen fast in the right environment, and that you can start to feel better from the very first session.
Like many others in this field, therapy is a second career for me. For more than two decades I have worked as a journalist on national magazines and newspapers, also publishing several books, specialising in emotional and psychological health. Training as a therapist and personal development coach was a natural progression.
Finding the right therapist can seem daunting. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapist), and member of the BACP Coaching Division, and the Association of Integrative Coach-Therapist Professionals (AICTP). I abide by the BACP code of ethics which means I am committed to working safely, ethically and confidentially.
WHAT I OFFER
I’m an integrated therapist, which means I work with several techniques that complement each other. I believe that one-size does not fit all when it comes to therapy, and aim to offer a bespoke service for each client, based on my training in the following techniques:
Psychodynamic counselling is focussed on how you relate to people, and how you experience them, and looks at how your past is affecting your present life.
CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) looks at how the way you think affects the way you feel and behave, and how unhelpful patterns can hold you back from achieving your full potential or feeling content.
Personal development coaching is future-focussed and involves exercises and techniques to help you tap into your personal strengths and abilities to make specific changes and live a more rewarding life.
