Many years experience working with people with alcohol and drug problems and also with others with the more general problems associated with therapy: depression, anxiety, relational problems, work problems, poor self image, stress, existential problems of identity and meaninglessness etc. Have worked extensively as a counsellor at the Priory Roehampton, Sharp London Day Care Project, the Capio Psychiatric Hospital, The Recovery Centre Knightsbridge, and Promis Counselling Centre in Kent. I've also had a private practice for many years.
In some senses time (experience) is the greatest teacher for a therapist. The capacity to create the environment in which the client can be listened to, `and begins to see the possibilities within their problem that contain the solutions. There are techniques and behavioural changes that help, but once started, change develops it own momentum and goes on.
Time, patience, trust, confidentiality, the capacity to listen and hear, and a non judgemental quality are the seed beds for therapy.
