I am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and have been in Clinical Practice since 2002. I am down to earth and friendly and passionate that therapy is a collaborative process - my job is to enable clients to find their own individual, specific answers to their problems. I am experienced enough to know that theory is helpful but what happens in successful therapy is not purely dictated by it. No one size fits all and no specific therapeutic model has all the answers. Therapy should reflect the diversity of the cultures within society now and what may work for one person will therefore not necessarily fit someone else. The way in which I work also reflects today's lifestyles so as well as working in person with clients, I also offer online therapy using Skype, Facetime & Whatsapp.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder
Stress management and reduction
This is probably one of the most important aspects of successful therapy. Even though many therapists have similar skills how a client and therapist relate is equally important. Although most of my clients come through referral or recommendation, finding someone on Google can be a step into the unknown.
I work with clients how I would like a therapist to work with me: approachable, supportive, empathic, human, non-shaming, kindly challenging and always with an eye on helping you achieve the results you want and helping to reduce psychological pain and negative symptoms.
Helping YOU is my primary goal. It is for this reason that I always suggest we first talk on the phone so we can assess what you need. Then when we meet for your first session if after the first 30 minutes we check that we are both happy to continue. If this isn't the case I would offer some alternative ideas or therapists you could talk to and would not charge for that time.
