Counselling

What sort of therapist are you?

I am a trained psychodynamic counsellor, which means my main theoretical orientation is based of the works of Freud, Klein, Winnicott and Bowlby. I do draw inspiration from other models, especially Assagioli's work on psychosynthesis and transpersonal development.

Is what I say confidential?

What is said in a counselling session is kept confidential, and any notes that are taken are kept securely, to comply with the Data Protection Act. To make sure that I am working ethically I do have supervision, where I discuss my work anonymously.

How long will long term/ongoing counselling take?

If we decide to work on a long term or ongoing basis, we can do this for as long as you feel you would like to come. If you are thinking of leaving at anytime we can discuss this within your therapy and work towards an ending. If ongoing work is not right for you we can discuss working short term instead.

Why choose private counselling?

Some types of psychological help are provided free at the point of need for some clients with specific issues. Most counselling in this context, if you are able to access it, is time limited, and you may not be able to choose the type of counselling you want at a time and place that suits you. It can also provide a high level of confidentiality where your attendance does not form part of your work, school or health record. With 1 in 4 people experiencing a mental health problem at some point in their lives private counselling practioners such as myself, make a valuable contribution to the prevention and intervention in psychological distress such as bereavement, self harm, addiction, anxiety and depression. http://bacppp.org.uk.-click to enter your text here.

Although meditation can be a spiritual experience and we sometimes use spiritual terminology like higher-self, spirit and connectedness; classes and one to ones at Infinite Dimensions are not aligned to any particular faith and are inclusive of everyone's beliefs.


How many sessions will I need?

I usually recommend once weekly sessions for 4-5 weeks to get into the habit of a regular practice, and to troubleshoot any issues you may have. After this most clients come once every 4 -6 weeks to develop and deepen their practice.
