Working With Me

The opposite of addiction is not sobriety, but connection

Initial Consultation

The Garden Practice offers a free 15-minute consultation to prospective clients. During this initial session, I aim to understand what brings you to therapy and address any questions you may have. It serves as a touching point to determine if we are a good fit for your needs. If necessary, I can refer you to another professional. Finally, we will set up an appointment, discuss the fee, and take it from there.

Therapeutic Approaches

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy, tailored just for you, is at the heart of The Garden Practice. I believe that each individual is unique and deserves a personalised approach to therapy. Drawing upon a range of therapeutic approaches, we will work together to meet your specific goals and unlock your full potential.

By integrating various therapeutic techniques, we can address the complexities of your experiences, emotions, and challenges. This allows us to create a customised treatment plan that suits your individual needs. Whether it's cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness-based techniques, or other evidence-based modalities, we will explore and utilise the approaches that resonate with you.

With integrative therapy, the focus is on empowering you to take an active role in your healing journey. Together, we will uncover the underlying causes of your struggles, develop effective coping strategies, and foster personal growth. This holistic approach enables you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, enhance self-awareness, and cultivate the tools needed to navigate life's challenges with resilience and confidence.

At The Garden Practice, integrative therapy is all about honouring your unique story and aspirations. Let's work together to discover the path that leads you to a life of fulfilment and the realisation of your true potential.

Art Psychotherapy

Art psychotherapy is a therapeutic approach that focuses on using art and creative expression as a medium for healing and self-exploration. This form of therapy is particularly beneficial for children, young people, and their families. By engaging in art, such as drawing, painting, or mark making, individuals can communicate and process their thoughts, emotions, and experiences in a non-verbal and symbolic manner. This is especially helpful for young clients who may find it challenging to express their feelings verbally. Through the use of a third medium, arts psychotherapists can uncover underlying emotions, gain insights, and facilitate growth and healing. Moreover, arts therapy is commonly used in the treatment of addiction and complex trauma, making it a versatile and effective therapeutic modality.

Group Supervision

Fostering Collective Learning and Therapist Development

In our group supervision sessions at The Garden Practice, you will have the opportunity to engage in a collaborative and supportive learning environment with your fellow therapists. As your group supervisor, I am here to facilitate this collective growth and development.

Group supervision offers a unique space where you can learn from one another's experiences, perspectives, and challenges. By sharing insights, discussing cases, and exchanging knowledge, you will gain valuable perspectives that broaden your therapeutic horizons. The diverse backgrounds and expertise within the group create a rich learning environment that fosters personal and professional growth.

Through group supervision, you will have the chance to deepen your understanding of various therapeutic approaches, interventions, and techniques. By exploring different perspectives and hearing diverse viewpoints, you will expand your therapeutic toolkit, allowing you to tailor your approaches to better meet your clients' needs.

Ethical considerations are also an integral part of our group supervision. By engaging in ethical discussions, you will develop a greater awareness of ethical dilemmas and best practices. This shared exploration of ethics ensures that all group members uphold the highest ethical standards in their practice, fostering a culture of integrity and client-centred care.

Moreover, group supervision offers a supportive network where you can seek guidance, feedback, and validation from your peers. By sharing your challenges, successes, and uncertainties, you will gain valuable support and validation, enhancing your confidence as a therapist. The bonds formed within the group can provide a sense of community and professional camaraderie, creating a space where you feel understood and supported.

In our group supervision sessions, I will facilitate the discussions, provide guidance, and ensure that everyone's voice is heard and valued. Together, we will nurture a collaborative and safe space where you can grow as a therapist, refine your skills, and gain insights that enhance your practice.

Group supervision is an invaluable opportunity to learn, connect, and evolve as a therapist. Embrace this journey of collective learning and professional development, knowing that you have a network of peers and a dedicated group supervisor to support you every step of the way.
