My Approach

The core of my practice model is taken from Systemic Therapy (also known as Family Therapy). I chose this model because the core ideas have roots in postmodern thinking which is informed by social anthropology, sociology, language and general philosophy. The richness of systemic therapy stems from its breadth of interests and ethos of inclusion of both ideas and the central value of all human beings. The core may be systemic therapy but I also bring to my practice the scientific rigour, model and practice of DBT, and CAT as well as ideas and methods of thinkings from; – Freudian and Jungian psychoanalysis, the philosophy of science & language, physics, chemistry, biology, critical thinking, evolutionary psychology, clinical psychology, biochemistry and pharmacology and neurology. As a psychotherapist seeking to help and support individuals and families with a wide range of challenges and problems, I subscribe to the principles and practices of science and the significant contributions made to psychotherapy by science, medicine, social constructionism, language philosophy and communication theory.

I am very experienced in working with both family groups, couples and individuals. Most of my work is with individual clients. The key idea in my model of work is that the thoughts, feelings and behaviour of a person are powerfully related to the relational dynamics of the system in which the individual lives and or works. As well as working in private practice I work within the NHS in two inpatient units. Obe is low secure and the other is a general adolescent unit that specialises in eating disorders and related conditions.

About Me

My counselling and mediation practice is built upon the central notion that I will act in the client's best interests and adhere to the following ideas and principles:
To be compassionate, honest, respectful and empathic;
To treat my clients in a collaborative way while respecting their autonomy;
To provide counselling sessions created to fit with the uniquely individual client need;
To keep in mind that individuals experience life within cultural, religious, economic, sexual, gender, social, political and physical environments;
To respect the rich cultural, religious, economic, social, sexual, gender, political and physical differences of people;
As a rationalist I subscribe to the principles and practices of medical and psychiatric research, psychological and mainstream science, critical thinking and the significant contributions made to counselling and psychotherapeutic treatment by social constructionism and the philosophy of language and communication;
To be rigorous in maintaining continuing learning and be open to new ideas, models and thinking in counselling practice;
To be rigorous in being aware of and maintaining my awareness of both child and adult protection and safety;
To maintain the privacy and confidentiality of the counselling and psychotherapeutic relationship within agreed and comprehensive ethical guidelines;
Being committed to the UKCP’s and FMA’s, ethical principles and codes of professional conduct;
To act in accordance with any legal requirements, practice and policies
