About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes you might feel that life is difficult, distressing or challenging, maybe not working out as you had hoped it would, or that you are stuck in a way of living that is causing you stress and unhappiness. Talking to friends, family or colleagues can often help. Maybe you don’t want to burden them, don’t have anyone to talk to, or maybe they’re part of the problem. Sometimes we need someone who is outside of the situation, who will really listen to us and our concerns and work with us to help us sort things out, so that we can feel better.

If you’re struggling with things in your life, past, present or future, or you’re not even sure what the problem is, counselling might be the help and support you need.

I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor. That means that rather than just sticking to just one counselling model (such as Psychodynamic or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) I use different ideas and techniques to suit you. Sessions can be just a few in number, or on a longer-term basis.

I work with individuals, whether adults, children or young people. I also work with couples.

I offer a friendly, secure and confidential space in the counselling room where you can be understood and valued.

I work with clients in person, by telephone and via video call software.

Please get in touch either with me by telephone or e-mail if you are interested in learning more or to arrange an initial appointment.

About me and my therapy practice

Regular clinical supervision is a requirement for registered members of most professional counselling bodies (such as the BACP, NCS or UKCP).

Clinical supervision is regular scheduled time to review client work, to consider the client/counsellor relationship and to sustain good practice as safely and as ethically as possible. The supervisor and counsellor work together to ensure the client is kept at the heart of the work. It gives safe space to explore and navigate as best as possible any ethical issues that may arise for both client and counsellor. Part of the work may involve considering areas for personal and professional development, as well as to ensure skills and knowledge are kept up to date. Supervision also enables the counsellor to safely consider their own personal resources to sustain their work and their client load.

How I Work:

I am a qualified Integrative Clinical Supervisor. 

Using an Integrative supervision model enables us to have a thorough exploration during our work together. My model supports us to form a collaborative and congruent relationship, which I believe is vital as we review and explore your clients and work.

I use the 7 Tasks of Supervision (Carroll) as a framework, and integrate 3 supervision models: the 7 Eyed Model (Hawkins & Shohet) , The Cyclical Model (Page & Wosket) and the Functional Model (Proctor).

Supervision Qualifications and Training:

  • OCN Accredited Certificate in Counselling Supervision.
  • CPCAB Level 6 Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Supervision.

Fees:

Supervision is offered on a fortnightly or monthly basis and fees are:

  • £45 per 1 hour session
  • £60 per 1.5 hour session
  • £70 per 2 hour session.

I do offer concessionary supervision rate for counselling students currently in training on recognised counselling courses, so please do ask if this applies to you.
