About me and my therapy practice

Welcome. You must be looking for some support and understanding at a difficult or anxious time for you, maybe a time when you want to make some changes and feel better. I hope my skills and experience can assist you. 

I offer Person Centred therapy, CBT and Transactional Analysis.  Or, depending on your needs the best combination of these: I am an Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor. 

I am committed to building a strong therapeutic relationship with absolute trust and respect; to allow you to talk openly with assured confidentiality, compassion and confidence. 

I also offer coaching for personal or professional development. I have experienced first hand, as coach and coachee, how coaching helps you to take key steps to make powerful changes and turn your potential into your reality. Coaching can literally change your life.

Since 1995 I  have dedicated my working life to Secondary School Education as an English Teacher,  Assistant and Deputy Headteacher and Educational Consultant.  I am still focused on helping people under and over 18 to grow and thrive. This is still my vocation, in a therapeutic context.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and therefore accountable to their standards for the safety of the public and the profession. I aim to uphold the standards of the BACP Ethical Framework in my practice.

Practice description

My practice is online using  Zoom or Vsee. 

I  offer walking and talking therapy should you prefer to take your sessions outdoors and into natural surroundings. These sessions are weather dependent to some extent and feasible in the hours of daylight only.

I also offer telephone sessions.

Face to face practice has been suspended temporarily due to the Corona Virus Pandemic.

My first session

Before the first session you can feel all kinds of emotions -apprehensive, afraid of what you're starting, relieved...

This is why I offer a free telephone consultation which takes between fifteen and thirty minutes. So you can start putting your mind at rest about how counselling works and if I am the right person for you. I will gather key information and you can ask questions. 

A working agreement will be signed by both parties, ahead of the first session, to give a transparent and shared understanding of the agreed expectations and commitment involved.

So, feel free to have that initial phonecall and make the best decision for you. I look forward to working with you!
