I have training and experience in clinical psychology, systemic family therapy and group analysis, so I have a number of different psychological models to draw on to find the best fit for you. Initially we will meet individually think together about what you hope for from the therapy. Once we agree to do some work together, we will arrange a regular weekly 50 minute session. We will check back in as we go to see whether the therapy is giving you what you need. The length of time we work together will be decided between us and will depend upon your needs and circumstances.
If you are interested in joining a psychotherapy group, we will discuss this together. The psychotherapy groups I hold are usually around 4-7 people, and meet once a week at the same time. I have held groups in person and online. During the continued uncertainty of the pandemic, we may need to do some negotiating around this.
I have worked in the NHS and the third sector since 2002. I combine a background in Clinical Psychology with my Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy training. This has given me experience of working therapeutically with people from a wide range of backgrounds. I value the conversations I have with people about the things that matter most to them. As well as therapy work, in recent years I have also held groups for health care professionals who are interested in exploring the impact of this ‘caring’ work upon themselves.
I meet people face to face in therapy rooms in Redruth and Penzance (Cornwall) as well as online.
