About the Therapist
In therapy we will address both the conscious element of personality to assist appropriate behavioural changes and the unconscious, to understand the reasons for feelings, thoughts and behaviours. In that way you will be able to contemplate change or growth in a balanced and appropriate way for you.It is of vital importance for you to be listened to in a strictly confidential, secure and safe setting so that issues can be analysed, understood and then appropriate solutions identified as quickly and appropriately as possible. In order to ensure that there is maximum confidentiality I always put in place safeguards some of which are outlined on my website www.psychotherapy121.com (the pages called "Dual Relationship" and the "Contract" give an outline of those procedures). If additional safeguards are needed then these can be discussed at our first meeting.
My aim is to assist in enabling you to make informed decisions about issues you face whilst providing tools for you to use so that the problems associated with those issues may be managed or reduced. In this way you should then be free to choose the course you take in life without being “pushed” in any particular direction. I firmly believe that awareness of why and how we behave or make decisions enables us to have choices so that we are then able to take decisions and modify our behaviour in our best interests when it is appropriate for us to do so.

Experience: In addition to my private practice as a psychotherapist I have worked with the NHS in a secure mental health unit in south London facilitating group work for patients.
In the past I have worked as a volunteer with various mental health, sexual health and minority organisations providing both long and short term psychotherapy and counselling. In addition I am a trustee and director of a small community interest company which provides low cost psychotherapy for those unable to afford the cost of private treatment. Prior to qualification as a psychotherapist I was a partner of and departmental head to a firm of Solicitors in the City of London and so have personal experience of working in pressured and stressful environments.
