About me and my therapy practice

I have worked in supportive roles with the government for over 10 years.  My earlier career focused on helping homeless people gain stability and focus to help them move towards a life of greater fulfilment and happiness.

I am passionate about helping people learn about themselves, understand themselves and reach their potential.  My training and development has always been about helping me develop my skills so I am better equipped to help others.

I primarily work on a one to one basis and am available to run group work as well.  I meet with client's either face to face, over the phone or using online video conferencing.

Practice description

I am experienced in supporting people struggling with substance misuse and addiction difficulties.  I have worked in this area for over 15 years and have a vast knowledge of the workings of addiction and the pain that addictive behaviours can cause an individual and those that they love. 

I have specifically worked with young people (under 25) for roughly 10 years and have a good understanding of how to work with this age group.

I am a fully qualified counsellor, registered with BACP.  I am also a fully qualified Wellbeing Practitioner with a post graduate certificate in this area.  I have also completed a post graduate certificate in Philosophy.

Fundamentally I work in a  Person-Centred way.  What this means is that I will take the time to understand the difficulty you are experiencing whilst working with you to help develop your understanding of this difficulty.  With time and insight I have felt how understanding creates peace and acceptance in my clients which ultimately leads to a happier life.

Through my training and experience I have learnt many tools and techniques which I share with my clients as and when I feel they will benefit from them.   

My first session

You can expect our first session to be relaxed.  I know it takes courage to make contact with a therapist, I treat this contact with respect and I will approach our work with care.  During our first session I will take the time to find out more about the difficulty you are experiencing, I will also ensure that I am qualified and trained to support you.  If not I will recommend the support that I feel is right for you.

During our first session I will also work with you to develop a contract of how we will work together and what you can expect from our work.
