Welcome to Warwick Psychotherapy
I work in private practice. I also worked in an NHS Psychotherapy Service for several years. I am a Jungian Analytical Psychotherapist. I am a member of the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy (WMIP). I am also a registered member of the British Psychoanalytic Council and of the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis College in the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). This list of issues I work with is inexhaustible: depression, bereavement, physical pain, anxiety, social adjustment, psychosis, feelings of lostness, emotional instability or borderline personality issues, addictions ( alcohol, eating disorders, sexual, etc.), emotional numbness, self-harm, sexual abuse.
Why come into therapy
As a therapist I don’t know everything. I do however, provide an analytical commentary or view on the issues that you bring to therapy so that you can develop a deeper knowing of yourself. This means that you will understand more about your relationships(family, friends, sexual, work etc.) and your role in them. We could explore dreams or imagery. I also provide a commentary on our relationship as this enables us to look at your patterns of relating in the immediacy of our encounter and hope to gain a deeper awareness. This is about making meaning together.
I also offer therapy or supervision to training or qualified counselors, psychotherapists, social workers, doctors, nurses, teachers or others in the helping professions.
Therapy length, frequency
I offer in-depth exploratory psychotherapy on a short or long term basis depending on your circumstances and the particular issues you bring to psychotherapy. We would both decide a time that is convenient for your therapy sessions. I offer therapy at a minimum frequency of once a week. This is the minimum frequency at which a therapeutic gain can be achieved. Depending on issues you bring to therapy I may recommend that you come more frequently.
I would offer you an initial consultation for an hour and a quarter . This would be to think about your journey so far and to see if we can embark on your analysis. You may decide in this session that I am not the therapist for you. If we both decide to go ahead with the therapy we would then agree a convenient time for regular therapy sessions.
My fee is £60 per hour. The therapeutic hour is 50 minutes. I keep a few reduced fee spaces for people on low income.
