My approach is interactive and relational. We will be collaborating together to find answers and acquire the desired results. I aim for you to experience changes and improvements within the early sessions (1-3) - learn strategies and gain insights. I am down to earth and open, and it is important to me that clients feel rapport and trust.
Hi, I am a senior Integrative psychotherapist, in clinical practice for 25 years. My work is based on best practice and clinical evidence. Previous experience has been within the NHS, public and private sector, psychiatric care, Director and Professor of Psychotherapy at Regents University and in the field of addictions. I combine psychotherapy with coaching as I find this gets the best results - we look at the root causes and also employ effective strategies that can be used from the outset. I also include CBT, Mindfulness and Psychoeducation alongside key humanistic and psychodynamic theories. I work both short and long term (see my website for 'how long therapy takes?'; and I offer weekly and fortnightly options, as well as early morning and lunch time sessions, to suit busy schedules.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
