About me and my therapy practice

I have used formal therapy techniques to assist people since the 1970s, beginning private counselling practice in 2009 following a career in HR/training, management and consultancy. I am qualified as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with additional training in relationship counselling, supporting young people, bereavement counselling, trauma and recovery from abuse. Since 2013 I have also worked as a Supervisor. 

In addition to general counselling work, with over 30 years experience in management and consultancy, I am able to support clients who are experiencing work-related difficulties, or who may simply benefit from the opportunity to reflect on career issues, in confidence. I have experience of working with armed forces and emergency services personnel. More details (including fee rates) can be found on my web page.

Practice description

My work is essentially person-centred and integrative. With a broad range of training and experience, I use methods which are most appropriate for each individual client, with my client's needs and priorities at the focus of the work. 

My first session

The first session is generally free of charge. The effectiveness of counselling work depends largely on the relationship between therapist and client; this first session provides a new client with an opportunity to assess whether I am the right counsellor without obligation. Details such as confidentiality and the reasons for coming to counselling are usually covered. Sometimes however, a new client will simply need to unload what is most bothering them first. That's OK!
