About me and my therapy practice

I have over 16 years' experience of counselling children, young people and adults in private practice as well as with the voluntary sector. I am an accredited Counsellor and Play Therapist. I completed a Post-Graduate Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling in 2004 and later in 2013 obtained my Diploma in Play Therapy. In 2017 I completed training in Filial Therapy and 2020 became a Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy-informed Practitioner. In 2019 I obtained a Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy Supervision Practise.

I undertake regular training and CPD, which recently has included TraumaPlaySM; a non-directive model of play therapy working specifically with traumatised children, attachment and neuroscience, sensory integration difficulties and trauma, mindfulness and breathwork for trauma recovery, polyvagal theory, relational trauma, working with shame and somantic experiencing. 


Practice description

My aim is to help to empower you; to enable you to enjoy secure relating and relationships that last, building self-esteem and confidence.  In a confidential and non-judgmental space, we can gain new understandings together and discover your own strengths and resources to heal and grow.

With children, the therapy involves lots of play and creativity. The child feels safe and able to express themselves as they choose. I help them express and make sense of difficult feelings and experiences. 


My first session

The first session is about getting to know each other. We'll talk about your concerns and what has brought you or your child to therapy, and what you hope to get out of it. I'll explain in more detail how I work. There's no obligation for you to decide if you want to go ahead. We can make an appointment for the following week or you can take some time to decide if I'm the right therapist for you or your child.

About me and my therapy practice

I aim to offer a safe confidential space within which to explore clinical, organisational or professional issues. I work as a person-centred non-directive practitioner. For me, supervision is a collaborative process focusing on the development of the therapist within a trusting, open and authentic relationship. As I am a qualified play therapist as well as counsellor, I am comfortable offering creative means to enhance exploration of issues. 

My first session

In the first session we will talk about what your needs are in a supervisor, details of your practice and how we both work. We look at what our expectations might be and if we each feel those can be reasonably met.
