Psychotherapist Liverpool

Hello and welcome to the Liverpool Psychotherapy and Counselling website.

Making  a decision to commence psychotherapy involves some important  considerations, such as, what you would like to get out of therapy and  who you would like to work with. It is therefore essential that  information is available to assist you in making your choice. In the  pages on this website I have aimed to give you an overview of my  practice and therapeutic approach and have endeavoured to make it as  clear as possible, however, if you require any further information or if  you would like to arrange an appointment for an initial consultation,  please do feel free to contact me.

I offer brief and long-term  psychotherapy to individuals, couples and groups within a safe and  comfortable environment. I also offer supervision of therapeutic work and I facilitate Gestalt therapy workshops. Due to the present Covid-19 Pandemic, I am currently only offering Online and Telephone Sessions. The Online platform that I use is Zoom, as this adheres to the GDPR confidentiality regulations.

I  have 17 years experience of working in a variety of clinical settings  within the NHS. The last 12 years of this was on a part-time basis and  it was alongside my psychotherapy work in private practice. Due to an  expanding intake of private referrals, I now work in full-time private  practice. I became a UKCP registered psychotherapist in 2004. I am also a Supervising Member of GPTI and a UKCP Recognised Training Supervisor.

My therapeutic orientation is in Gestalt therapy, which  is suitable for working with a wide range of personal difficulties. I  have experience of working with people who struggle with low self-esteem and confidence  issues; anxiety; stress; depression; anger-related issues; relationship  difficulties; loss; issues relating to sexual orientation and gender identification; issues relating to different forms of racism and white privilege; cultural conflicts; life-transition struggles and the effects of trauma,  including sexual abuse.

I abide by the Code of Ethics and  Professional Practice of the Gestalt Psychotherapy & Training Institute (GPTI) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). This  includes keeping up to date with continuing professional development and  engaging in a process of re-accreditation with GPTI / UKCP every five years.
