About me and my therapy practice

Counselling can be the start of a better, calmer, happier way of life and it is my privilege to witness this in the clients I work with.  The decision to undertake therapy isn't an easy one to make and I understand there are often doubts and hesitations. My aim is to create a safe, comfortable space where we can work at your pace and with your aims and feelings are at the centre of the process.

My particular areas of expertise are in anxiety, depression and self esteem issues. I encourage clients to become aware of how they feel and to understand the origin of their difficulties in order to manage the changes they wish to see in their lives.

As a counsellor I work integratively. This means that, rather than using a single approach, the therapy I offer uses different theories and methods, tailored towards individual issues, needs and requirements. This allows me to focus on my clients and work flexibly towards the outcomes they wish to achieve. At the heart of this approach is building a strong effective therapeutic relationship to offer the best possible outcomes.

I am a fully qualified, professional therapist, accredited and registered by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have undertaken extensive training in counselling and have accumulated many years of experience in client work. In addition to private practice, I have worked and continue to work, as a counsellor in a range of settings including a London university (seeing students and staff), a Hospice and Bereavement Counselling service and a leading UK mental health charity. As a member of the BACP I am committed to meeting ongoing requirements for training and supervision the maintain the standards of my practice.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer supervision to counsellors working with adults or children, as well as others in helping professions, who may benefit from reflecting on their work and clients in a confidential and supportive environment.

I am a fully trained integrative therapist and have been supervising fellow counsellors for a number of years. In addition I have completed additional training in supervision (Level 6 CPCAB Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling Supervision). I have worked with counsellors from a wide range of theoretical orientations and as I myself practice integratively am able to be flexible and tailored in my approach. My own background and ongoing work is with adults, young people and children.

My approach within supervision is that we are always learning, whether things are going well or we are encountering difficulties with our clients. I believe that by offer fellow therapists and others in people centred environments, an effective, non judgemental professional relationship and a safe confidential space to reflect on practice, we can grow and develop in our work.
