I trained in;
Integrated Counselling, this is a combined approach using different elements of therapies to suit the individual.
CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), this aims to improve your mental health whereby developing coping mechanisms and emotional regulation, changing the way you look at situations.
Transactional Analysis, this is where social transactions are analysed to see which ego state you are in; child like state, adult like or parent like. It teaches you to understand your behaviour and to use the ego state which suits your situation the best.
I started my training in 2006 at the Northern Guild in Newcastle and at Leeds Met. Since then I have attended many counselling workshops to improve my knowledge. And had work placements at GPS surgeries and charities. I work as a Volunteer with RDA, Macmillan Cancer and British Heart Foundation.
I combine my time between London and Yorkshire. At the moment my practice is online due to COVID. This has worked well and my clients find it more flexible as it cuts out travel.
In Yorkshire you can drive to the door of my counselling room which is set in a garden and is a light, secure environment.
In London you can catch a tube to New Bond Street.
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.
