My Approach

I believe all clients to be individuals who possess their own unique blueprint, (which is physical, mental, emotional, biological, historical, phenomenological and psychological in nature). I consider that each and every individual client and every individual couple requires from their therapist a spaciousness to support them in their work and a variety of skills and approaches to facilitate their therapeutic journey. My style of working supports me to provide an individually tailored integrative therapy for all of my clients. I have the capacity to provide a range of therapeutic styles, from a more short term therapy using counselling and behavioural approaches, to a more in-depth long term psychotherapy approach.

The foundation and structure of my psychotherapeutic practice with my clients is a creative and integrative style grounded in Transactional Analysis, which was developed by Eric Berne in the 1950s and is a widely recognized form of modern humanistic psychology. From my own individual journey, experiences and many years of working with clients, I have found Transactional Analysis to be incredibly effective, supporting clients to understand the complexities of themselves and their human relationships. This understanding helps them to make different life choices and via their therapeutic journey moving towards the life they want, rather than a life that - on some level - may have been preordained, due to their unconscious issues.

I work collaboratively with my clients, supporting them to resolve their issues and reach their desired life goals in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. My Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy training and the other valuable additional trainings that I have undertaken over the years - together with my own vast life experience - is encompassed within my working approach.

I provide a space for clients that is safe, confidential and non-judgemental. I work collaboratively with them, supporting them to resolve their issues and reach their desired life goals.

About Me

I am a Psychotherapist and a Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA) with many other additional trainings under my belt. Transactional Analysis (developed by Dr Eric Berne in the 1950s) is an extremely versatile and widely recognised form of modern humanistic psychology. The name I am most known by is Jay. To gain a broader picture of how I work, please see my website - I work with individuals, couples and groups. My client work is now offered mainly online via an online platform such as ZOOM or face to face in Surrey.

To share a little back ground with you, in my earlier years I worked in commerce and industry within high stress environments before entering into the nursing profession, where I qualified as a Registered General Nurse, initially specializing in critical care for adults. These valuable experiences provided insights that continue to support me in developing and maintaining my curiosity and interest in working with the complexities of our common humanity and individual natures. As such, I have worked with a diverse range of people of differing ages and from all walks of life.

I have been working therapeutically with clients since 2004, offering them my extensive experience and a grounded approach through an ethical framework to support them with the issues that they bring. To give a few examples of these, clients may come into therapy because they are feeling overwhelmed by anger, stress or depression, or they are feeling challenged by difficult life-changing events and/or experiencing relationship difficulties with a partner, family member, friend or a colleague at work.
