THERAPIST

I currently run my own private practice with adults and young people of any gender, ethnic and cultural background.

As a Counselling Psychologist I have a diversity of skills that can adapt to the clients individual, and at times, complex needs. Each contract is negotiated individually, offering both brief and open-ended therapy. I have trained in Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural therapy and can apply tools from each of these approaches as deemed appropriate and are integrated within each session. However my natural approach is Psychodynamic, looking at past history to make sense of current behaviours. I also like to focus on the relationship between myself and the client in order to make sense of any relational difficulties they may be experiencing.

My professional career has spanned 14 years of working with young people in a variety of capacities;

  • Nanny

  • Children with autism in a residential school

  • Family assessment centre

  • Supported living service with leaving care young people in an administration role.

Therefore it was a natural progression to start my career as a Psychologist with young people. Following my training I was employed by Relate Mid-Wiltshire as a Young persons Counsellor. With them I received extensive training that utilises all of my skills as a Counselling Psychologist, an artist, and my professional experience stated above.

I provided Young Persons counselling in 3 primary schools  and 1 secondary school in a Wiltshire army town from ages 5yrs to 18yrs. In addition, through Relate, I provided client hours for PCAMHS in Marlborough offering me the opportunity to learn about processes and procedures with the NHS and Social services, liaising at different levels in order to ensure the safety and care for each client. I recently provided some time to Relate Swindon to help set up the Young Survivors project funded by Comic Relief.
