About me and my therapy practice

If you are reading this you may well be in crisis or are being challenged by a life issue and are asking what can Heather do to help me?

I have been a counsellor for many years and have helped many people with all types of different challenges and losses. I would describe myself as an integrative counsellor with a person centred heart, which means that I use techniques from different modes of counselling that will best suit you and your needs and I am happy to work creatively with you if this is what you would like. The counselling would be a collaborative process where you are met in a relationship which is warm, accepting, non-judgemental and empathic. By having me 'in your corner', together we can help you find the answers to the questions you seek. My hope is that you would feel supported and held by me.

Being a lady of mature years I have a lot of life experience that I bring to my counselling practice.

I am an accredited registered member of BACP and work according to their code of practice and ethics.

About me and my therapy practice

"Amazing things can happen when we listen to one another" Hunt (1986) My supervision practice is based on the seven eyed model of supervision by R Shohet and P Hawkins see "Supervision in the Helping Professions" which gives both the supervisor and counsellor a map to work from within each supervision session.I am warmly relational and when working together I would encourage you to bring the client into focus in the room as a unique human being, looking at the work from their perspective through their own lens. My aim would be not to have a fixed idea of how the counselling / psychotherapy work should proceed but rather listen to you the counsellor and how you approach the work, taking account of the context in which the work is taking place. I would also hold an awareness of how parallel processing maybe presenting itself in the room.The type of supervisor relationship I would try and build with you the counsellor would be a relationship of mutual trust and understanding, empathy and congruence taking account of what is happening in the here and now and in the there and then. My aim would be to provide a safe, reflective space in which supervision takes place so that the counsellor feels held and has what they need in order to do the work with the client. In supervision as in counselling I believe it is the relationship that determines whether counselling or supervision is successful.In the past I have been a Group and Individual supervisor for Cruse and have supervised counsellors who are training on Diploma courses / Foundation degree courses as well as qualified counsellors in private practice. Qualifications. Cruse Bereavement Care certificate in supervision 2014 Ascentis level 3 certificate in supervision 2015 Advanced diploma in Relational Supervision 2019 Fees.  I have a reduced rate for students - please enquire.
