About me and my therapy practice
I am a BACP Accredited counsellor, with over 20 years of experience counselling clients in a variety of settings and organisations. I hold a MA in counselling which I obtained from Chester University.
I initially trained as a person-centred counsellor and these humanistic values still underpin how I work. I hold the belief that given the right conditions, we are all capable of creating more of what we want and becoming more of the person we want to be. I feel passionate about helping the clients I work with fulfil their potential and move towards a life that is aligned with their true desires.
Over the years my experience and training have led me to adopt a more integrative/pluralistic style of practice. This means I will work collaboratively with the client to decide on the method and tools that are best suited to their individual needs, along with the issues they present with.
For instance, some clients will want to work in-depth, this may involve working in a way that explores how issues from childhood impact the client's ability to function in the now. Other clients may want to focus more on a specific problem, such as difficulty in a relationship, not being able to succeed in certain areas of their lives, addiction or behavioural problems. Here the client might require a more planned, goal-oriented approach, or a mixture of both. Some clients may just want the space to grieve for a loved one, or to come to terms with a difficult life event.
I am also trained in couples counselling and can help couples who are experiencing issues in their relationship gain a deeper understanding of their problems. Giving them an opportunity to move towards more transparent open communication and the possibility of deeper intimacy in their relationship.
I am committed to offering the clients I work with a safe, confidential and warm space in which we can collectively work in pursuit of their well-being.
I offer a free 20 mins consultation over the phone in which you can ask me any questions you would like to ask about the therapy.
Please contact me for an informal discussion to see if I would be the right counsellor for you.
