My qualifications are as follows :
MSC Psychotherapy (UKCP accredited)
Advanced Diploma in Counselling
Accredited in Pesso Boyden
I also teach counselling, am a supervisor and run workshops for therapists and coaches. I co-founded and was a Director of the Banbury Counselling Academy which trains people in becoming counsellors, wrote most of the course material there and was a Programme Director and course tutor on the Diploma course.
I have recently completed and qualified in a 3 year course in Pesso Boyden, a new approach to therapy which is extremely effective. I'm now one of only 8 accredited therapists in the UK using this powerful method, and I use it with individual clients and in workshops.
I see people with a variety of issues they would like to explore. I am experienced in working with loss in all its forms, mid life difficulties, relationship problems, anxiety and depression, work-based stress, repeating patterns in life, past traumas that affect them in present life.
I am trained in gestalt psychotherapy, which means listening to and responding to someone's, thoughts, feelings, body and soul. I try to see the whole of someone, rather than focus on reducing symptoms - our difficult feelings usually mean that something is wrong, and rather than try to make them go away I aim to uncover what is underneath, to find what is unfolding in someone's life. When the underlying things are explored, symptoms usually fade.
I am also trained in Pesso Boyden, which is a powerful new body-focused method which is great for resolving childhood issues and trauma. This usually has a large impact quickly.
Finally I like to be creative in my work if I can, and if the client is comfortable with that.
