can read above that I have experience of working with many different issues and
within many different contexts, but I guess I am used to working with general
client counselling issues like anxiety, unhappiness and stress, right through
to complex, severe and enduring Mental Health clients, groups, supervision of
other therapists individually and in groups and training other therapists,
counselling volunteers and interpreters for counselling sessions.
interests and experience include change, working with complex cases, OCD, brief
therapy, anxiety and depression, abuse and domestic violence, the effects of
our past on our present - cause and effect rather than blame and judgement -
working with Existential issues (er.. simply, that we are all going to die one
day, and the effect that has on our existence.. sorry!) CBT and loads more.
offer a detailed initial assessment session and am delighted to discuss your
needs, wants and fears about therapy, and to take all the time needed to fully
explain what is on offer and whether or not it is what you want. In some
cases of course, counselling is not immediately appropriate, and an onward
referral might be discussed and made.
am used to working with complex cases sometimes over brief periods (6 - 20
weeks) and also offer longer term therapy if needs be, but rarely work with
someone for more than a year.
work that you do with me will be led by you; do not hesitate to call me for
advice and a chat about what might be available or helpful for you.
am rubbish at answerphones so if I do not pick up, please leave a brief text
with your name and number, and I will call you back as soon as I can – or
for taking the time to read about me!
