Counselling & Psychotherapy

I work with a wide range of clients and presenting problems. I provide both short and longer term counselling and psychotherapy which can be tailored to fit individual needs and circumstances.

Short Term Therapy (16 – 20 sessions)

Short term therapy can be helpful for many people. If you are suffering from a commonly diagnosed mental health problem such as depression or anxiety, experiencing difficulties in a relationship, or dealing with the impact of a stressful life situation, short term therapy may be the most appropriate option. It can also be a good way of trying therapy for the first time.

I provide a number of evidence- based therapies including Time- Limited Dynamic Therapy (TLDP) Psychotherapeutic Counselling and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT). IPT is recommended by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) alongside CBT as a therapy for depression. It has been found to be particularly effective in helping people to improve the quality of their relationships and find different kinds of support from within their social network. This is something which sounds simple but is often very challenging for people especially when they are experiencing the sense of isolation associated with depression and other mental health problems.

Longer term therapy (variable length)

If you have long standing or complex difficulties stemming from early childhood or more recent trauma, longer term therapy may be the most effective option . Longer term therapy can also be helpful for people who have already experienced some benefit from a short term intervention and want to engage in further therapy. My approach to longer term therapy is integrative which means I draw on a broad knowledge of different therapy models including cognitive, psychodynamic and systemic approaches. I aim to work with each individual client to build a safe supportive relationship and adopt the therapeutic approach or combination of approaches which best fits their needs

Clinical Supervision

I provide clinical supervision for practitioners working in a variety of settings in the NHS, other public, voluntary and education sector organisations or in private practice. I work with counsellors, psychotherapists, clinical and counselling psychologists and other mental health professionals and offer integrative or psychodynamic, individual or group supervision depending on the clinical context and individual needs of the supervisee(s).

I specialise in supervision for senior professionals working in demanding clinical and organisational contexts including psychologists and psychological therapists dealing with complex cases or utilising a number of different therapeutic modalities. I also provide supervision of supervision and mentoring for senior professionals in leadership roles.

I offer bespoke design development and delivery of training programmes and CPD workshops for psychologists, counsellors, psychological therapists and mental health practitioners working in a variety of organisational contexts. I also offer a consultancy service to organisations teams and individuals.
