My training is based on Petruska Clarkson’s Integrative Model that comprises teachings based on psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive behaviour approaches. It offers broad academic foundation that can be moduled according to each individual's needs.
This approach emphasises the importance of our mutual relationship; relationship that is based not only on practical aspects such as contract and presenting issues but also on a real emotional connection. This is very different to a professional relationship you might have with your doctor or dentist.
This relationship will often be influenced by our past experiences, where we will remind each other of someone else from our respective pasts. And that is OK, we will explore this together.
I will aim to provide a relationship that is reparative and corrective if the original parental relationship was abusive of deficient. I can offer you a space that is safe and non-judgemental where you can start exploring and making sense of your issues. By looking both in the past to understand your patterns, reasons behind them and by looking forward to see how you can change them.
I am experienced in helping clients who have difficulties with:
• Suicide and Self-harm
I work with individual adults and young people on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period (or short-term).
My practice is based on two locations:
One in Wimbledon, 5 min walk from the main train station, within St Mark's Church, St Mark's Place.
The second one is based within Surrey Centre for Natural Health in Chessington, Surrey. This is within easy reach of Chessington North and South Train Stations, Chessington Community College and Chessington World of Adventures. There are free parking spaces available.
