How I work...

My Psychotherapy training was in constructivist psychology which is based on the work of George Kelly. Kelly felt that no one need feel “painted into a corner” and it was the job of the therapist to help the client to build bridges and become “unstuck”. In addition he thought that the client knew more about their own difficulties than anyone else and it was the task of therapy to help facilitate and support the client to create a more fruitful life for themselves.

Perhaps the most well known exponent of Kelly’s work today in the UK is Dorothy Rowe. In her popular book on Depression she wrote convincingly of how we can create our own world of unhappiness (depression) but importantly also, how we can learn to leave it behind us.

For many reasons our lives can lead us into suffering through no fault of our own. However we can often make things worse by the way we see and interpret our situation. But just as we can construct our worlds of unhappiness we can de-construct them by seeing things differently.

Kelly created a language which enables us to explain our life in a positive and constructive way and it will be my task to share these ideas thoughts and techniques with you to help you to build a better world for yourself and others.

Should you decide you would want to work with me, following the first initial session I would agree to see you for six one hour sessions. On the 6th session we would review the progress to date and plan the future direction of therapy.
