A safe space
 

My approach is to offer a safe, confidential space where you can explore who you have been and who you are becoming. I am a member of BACP and adhere to their code of ethics. I am also committed to the Karuna Institute’s code of practice, they are affiliated with the UKCP. I am in regular supervision with a UKCP registered supervisor. I have Professional Liability Insurance cover and am also registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). This means your personal information is confidential and treated securely as such at all times.

Confidentiality
 

Everything that happens in the therapy room is confidential. Nothing would be shared with a third party without your permission. My code of ethics do require me to breach confidentiality however, if I believe you are at risk of harming yourself or others or if harm has been done to children. I am in supervision, all therapists are, and I talk with my supervisor about my work on a regular basis. My supervisor is bound by the same ethical codes on confidentiality. 

Session Length
 

Core Process Psychotherapy is a weekly practice where you have your allotted hour at the same time every week. This provides an emotional ‘holding’ and continuity that is useful for deep work. Sessions last 60 minutes.

How long does it take?
 

Therapy can be short, a few months, if there is a particular issue that needs some quality attention. Or, if you want to change the deeper patterning of your thinking and behaviour, address personality traits that no longer serve you, then the process will be longer. I see therapy as a journey to being your best self. It usually requires getting behind the masks we wear and digging around in the shadows – digging for the gold as well as the muck!  

Fees
 

My fee is £40 per session.

What next?
 

If you think you would benefit from therapy, the first step is to get in touch. If I think I can help you, I’ll invite you to come to the therapy space and we can talk more about you and what you need. This first session is free of charge and is for you to decide whether you want to come into therapy with me. We can consider whether time-limited or on-going therapy would be better for you. It’s common practice at the beginning of therapy to have six sessions together to make sure that this work is right for you.
