free psychotherapy for people on low incomes and benefits
I value respect and collaboration in my work with clients. I believe that problems with living, relationships, painful experiences, disturbing thoughts and emotions are common to all of us, regardless of age, gender, ability and social background and can come from many sources. Certain conditions, such has having a long term illness, disability or learning and cognitive problems can make things even harder to cope with.
I share with my clients many of the life challenges and I hope that I can approach each situation not only with professional understanding, skills and knowledge but also with true human compassion, integrity and caring.
In Psychotherapy and Counselling I not only use the different therapeutic approaches but I also rely on my training and experience in Psychology. I believe that combining psychology with psychotherapy makes it possible for me to work with clients who traditionally, due to their functional or psychological departures from the ‘norm’, might not be considered suitable for psychotherapy. I personally prefer to see all human functions on a continuum of a variety of developments rather than these being ‘normal’ or ‘abnormal’. I also see these influenced by societal values and expectations. For far too long we have ‘scapegoated’ individuals for failures of economic and political systems which come and go but too frequently refuse to be accountable for human wellbeing on a global scale.
My combined training helps me to arrive at an idividual range of solutions for all my clients, which includes psychological interventions where necessary and allows me to adapt the psychotherapeutic approaches to your psychological needs.
I provide a flexible Psychology, Psychotherapy and Counselling Service for individuals, couples and families and I bring together a range of therapeutic approaches and techniques, depending on what is necessary in any given session. I believe that each problem presents a unique challenge and drawing on the different approaches will lead to best outcomes.
I also offer Professional Supervision and Consultation for qualified practitioners, students and care providers.
I am a Chartered member and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and BPS registered professional supervisor. I am also an accredited member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) having worked for 2Gether NHS Trust for many years before moving on to private practice.
