About me and my therapy practice

Hi Thank you for looking at my profile. I am a qualified and experienced Person-Centred counsellor with over 10 years in practice. My belief is that the relationship formed within the therapeutic setting is key for the client to feel heard, respected and empowered. Finding someone to hear what you want to say, or often, what you need to say, is the first step in moving forward and processing experiences that might have been kept under wraps for a long time. I can provide a safe and non-judgemental space for you to do that. I am happy to work with clients for long or short timeframes. Sometimes in life we all need a little support and acceptance. Taking the first step in finding a counsellor is often quite difficult, but taking that step can also lead to changes that make a huge difference to an individual's life. If you would like to talk to me, please contact me by phone or email. I generally work face to face, but currently I am only working on line as I am moving from Sussex to Cambridgeshire. 

Practice description

I love my work! I believe in what I do, and I believe in my client's ability to find their own way forward, while I walk along side them. Currently I am only offering online services, but I hope to be reintroducing face to face sessions but the end of the summer. I charge £45 per session, although concessions are available. I can work flexibly, and at a pace the suits the individual. If you would like to work with me, you decide how often you would like to come and for how long. There is no obligation for you to come for a set amount of sessions. I work with adults and young people. I have an enhanced DBS and I have worked in schools as a counsellor and as a teacher. I am also a counselling supervisor, and I work with both counsellors in training and qualified counsellors to support them in their work and development.

I will ask you to fill in the client information on the first page, and either print it off and bring it to your first session or return it to me by email.If, for safety or any other reasons, you prefer not to receive information to your home, we can fill it in during our first session.All of my records and information are stored safely and within GDPR and I am registered with the Information Commissioner's Office which sets standards and guidelines for the storage of personal information.

Supervisor - Stone Cross

Stone Cross BN24
07395076589
Sessions from £45.00

Features

  • Flexible hours available
  • Concessionary rates

Availability

Generally I work all day Monday and Thursday and Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings. I can also do early morning sessions from 6.30 am.Due to an imminent move from Sussex to Cambridgeshire I am only taking on supervisees who are happy to work via zoom.

I hope to be working face to face in Cambridgeshire by the end of the summer.

About me and my therapy practice

I have been a qualified Person Centred counsellor for over 10 years and I qualified as a supervisor just over a year ago. I currently work with qualified counsellors and counsellors in training. I am familiar with 4 way agreements with places of learning and also 3 way agreements between agencies, charities and other organisations.

I offer a concessionary rate to counsellors in training or those who are on a low income. My experience of working as a counsellor has meant that I have valued my own supervision and supervisor enormously, and I know how important having a safe space to share concerns, experiences and development is.

If you would like to talk to me about supervision, please do get in touch.

Practice description

I love what I do and becoming a supervisor has added a whole new dimension to my work, and my development. Because I work with counsellors in training, I have had to be approved by local training providers, and I currently work with student counsellors from 3 different colleges and one university.

I am non - judgemental and open, and I hope that if you work with me, we will form a relationship where you feel safe to explore any aspect of your work or anything that can impact on that work.

I am currently only working online, but despite being resistant to 'technology', I have found that this works well and enables me to work outside of the area I live in.I am registered with the ICO and all of my notes and records are GDPR compliant and I have DBS clearance.

As counsellors working within the BACP ethical framework, we are expected to commit to specific hours of supervision. I also offer my supervisees someone to call should some thing crop up outside of our regular sessions. This is all outlined in my working agreement, which I would send to you prior to our first session.If you would like to speak to me about availability and working together, please do get in touch, without any obligation to proceed.

My first session

Prior to our first session, I will send out a working agreement. We will discuss this during our first session and if you are agreeable, that will form the framework of our work together. If you would like to proceed, we will meet online either fortnightly for an hour or every four weeks for 1 1/2 hours.I ask that you pay before your session by bank transfer.

I will send out your zoom link invite at least 2 hours before we are due to meet.

I like to do a review after 3 sessions to see how we both feel about the supervisee/supervisor relationship and ensure that we are both working in a way that is useful, ethical and trusting.
