People seek psychological and psychotherapeutic help for a range of reasons. They may need to get through difficulties such as anxiety or depression, to overcome life crises including separations and losses, or to resolve conflicts. They may wish to improve relationships with others, to grow and to experience greater wellbeing through increased self-awareness, or to find meaning in life. My practice involves working with the full range of these issues.
I work with individuals, couples and groups.
As well as working directly with people seeking help, I also offer clinical supervision to others doing this work, and supervision to practitioners in other fields.
A third strand to my practice involves working as a consultant, trainer and researcher.
Background and experience
Because I have the benefit of a background in both psychology (the academic and applied discipline which aims to understand the mind, behaviour and experience) and psychotherapy (the practice discipline of the art and science of addressing difficulties of behaviour and experience), as well as many years of working in different settings, I have a lot of resources to draw on.
I have a range of ways of working with individual adults, from brief employee-assistance contracts (typically three sessions), through structured brief therapy contracts (from a few to around forty sessions), to longer-term exploratory psychotherapy.
Please contact me if I may be able to help you with any of the above.
Please note : My services are available without charge to eligible workers (and/or eligible members of their families) whose employers subscribe to the Benestar Employee Assistance Programme. Re-imbursement may be available for some of the cost of seeing me if you have cover under a health insurance policy for 'clinical psychology'.
