About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced counsellor, counselling supervisor and reflective practice facilitator who values working ethically and compassionately.  I value Continuing Professional Development and enjoy learning,  and this includes learning from my clients.  I am a culturally-sensitive practitioner, and have worked with issues around diversity and inclusion, racism and bias. My work with clients has included trauma, relationships, self-esteem, loss, depression and anxiety. I aim to establish a good working rapport from the beginning, offering warmth and curiosity without judgement. I believe that being in a genuine engaged relationship with  clients creates a safe environment for them to process the painful and difficult and compassionately find resolution, management strategies or ways of healing.  

I work within the BACP Ethical framework and have worked with issues of self-harm and suicidal ideation within safeguarding boundaries. 

As a supervisor and reflective practice facilitator, I bring a holistic view to the work and have worked with individuals and groups involved in family, immigration and criminal law, public enquiries and child protection, in addition to counsellors and psychotherapists and psychologists.
