About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced counsellor having worked with Adults, young people, and couples.  I have worked in both a school and university setting.  I am also an accredited Mindfulness teacher with Breathworks.  

I offer both short and longer term therapy.  I believe that the relationship between the counsellor and the client is of paramount importance.  I believe I offer a trusting and safe environment for clients to explore whatever issues they come with.

I have extensive experience working with young people from 16yrs old, and offer various coping strategies.  I am a passionate mindfulness trainer, and have an ongoing meditation practice.

Practice description

Due to the COVID situation my work is online or over the telephone.  I am able to offer as and when the weather allows some sessions at a distance in the garden.

I review this situation regularly.  

My first session

I offer sixty minutes for an initial assessment.  I feel this allows time for both myself and the prospective client to assess whether the way I work will be of support.  

For couple counselling I offer sixty minutes for every counselling session.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified supervisor trained in the Seven Eyed Model in Supervision Peter Hawkins and Robin Shoet. I enjoy working alongside supervisees encouraging a deeper understanding of the relationship between the supervisee, and their clients, and the supervisory relationship. I believe I am able to provide a trusting and safe environment for the supervisee to explore their individual style of counselling, and how to take care of themselves.  

Practice description

I have experience of being a group supervisor for a Surrey charity.  I also have experience of supervising counsellors within both a university and private practice setting.

My first session

It is important for the supervisor to provide a safe and trusting containing space to explore their supervisee’s work with their clients. In the first session I encourage a collaborative approach where we can exchange our philosophy of our counselling work and to assess whether we will work alongside each other.  

I encourage regular reflections on the supervisory relationship and these reflections are shared in a respectful manner.
