Psychotherapist & Counsellor
Dip Contemporary Psychotherapy, MLNP, BSc PsychCall Now
I am a qualified BACP registered therapist. I help people heal and integrate. I’m a parent, a skateboarder, a basketball player and I’ve done quite a lot of therapy. I don't do psychic amputation. I believe you can't cut off a part of yourself you don’t like or that causes you pain and that you will run into more problems if you try. I do believe you can reach into your heart and soul through therapy and establish a healing relationship that will give you the resources you need to live well and fully. I work short and long term, face to face and online. Sessions: 50 mins Cost: £65 ( some concessions available)
My approach, training and practice is in Contemporary Psychotherapy an integrative and outcome oriented approach intended to organically facilitate recovery, growth and healing. As a therapist it is my aim to be accurately adaptable to the unique experience and functioning patterns of you as the client, tailoring my approach to the uniqueness of each person. I focus not just on your personal history, but especially on your immediate needs and your short and long term well-being, for now and in the manageable future. My methods of practice may be of less interest to you if you are seeking help - sometimes you just want to be helped. My approach is strongly influenced by the work of legendary therapist Milton Erickson, and aims to provide a safe and relaxing approach, working with you to find your change and heal in harmony with your own unique sense of self.
I have a BSc Hons degree in Psychology as a mature student and started psychotherapy training at 28yrs of age at The Metanoia Institute in West London. Here I did 4yrs of Transactional Analysis (TA) psychotherapy and worked at Hackney Bereavement Service and ran a private practice in North London. I’ve taught psychology undergraduates at Middlesex University and also taught & facilitated groups at the British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy. I have qualified as master practitioner in NLP and my recent training includes qualifying with a Diploma in Contemporary Psychotherapy that integrates systemic NLP as an outcome oriented approach. I am a member of BACP(British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and also work as a volunteer counsellor at the Terrence Higgins Trust in Brighton. I have a special interest in physical health and wellness, people diagnosed as bi-polar, and early development trauma, and suicidal feelings. All the fun stuff.
