In order to keep you safe I continue to follow the Government and BACP guidance regarding Corona Virus, this means I offer face to face sessions as well as telephone and online sessions to clients 

About me and my therapy practice

Therapy gives you the opportunity to take time out, see things from a new perspective and discover the strengths you already have. I will support you in developing new ways of increasing your emotional resilience, creating a robust approach to challenges.

Understanding why we feel the way we do is critical to a successful resolution. I share practical ways of reducing stress, depression, anxiety, anger, whatever the cause and help you build skills and flexibility  to deal with the things that life throws your way. Leaving you free to enjoy a happier and more fulfilled life. 

This is not just a 'talking shop'. In engaging with these sessions you will have the opportunity and support to build experiences which will empower you to view things differently and to understand your emotional responses. This will enable you to regain control of these response,  get back on track and achieve your goals. 

I work with individuals, couples, and groups, including; work based teams, young people and school groups, (enhanced DBS held) and am a qualified supervising counsellor.

I use a range of approaches including Person Centred Counselling, CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, Critical Incident Debriefing, Life Coaching, stress/anxiety reduction, anger management and mindfulness, depending on the needs of the client and the current situation. 

Although 97% of my clients have around six sessions, we will work at a pace which suits you and enables you to develop the self-knowledge and resources to face your current situation and the challenges of the future. 

Practice description

I work from home and usually see clients weekly.  I offer face to face, and online sessions and work with clients across the country and globally.

I work holistically, looking at your situation and at the wider context,  research shows that this approach enables clients to take control of their lives and build their self esteem.

Working together we would assess the current situation and agree how best to move things forward. Counselling can be both a thoughtful, and a practical process so practising new skills is an integral part of the journey. 

We will build a confidential relationship, creating a safe space for you to express your concerns and be supported to find the solutions which suit you best.

My first session

Towards the end of our first session, we would decide if we are comfortable working together and, in line with B.A.C.P. guidance we would establish an agreement which sets out the boundaries of our working relationship, in particular the rules around confidentiality.

This is to ensure that you get an excellent service and that your information is protected, in line with current legal requirements.

There is no requirement to book a series of sessions, indeed most clients book from week to week.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified level 6 supervisor providing support for therapists and counsellors working with clients in workplace, school and private settings. I support them in;

Restorative interventions; looking after themselves, seeing the counsellor as key and supporting them to enable good practise  

Professional Development: Discussions around managing their practise or working environment. Working ethically and sharing knowledge and experience. 

Casework; dealing with clients, case notes,  interventions and relationships within the counselling setting,  both inside sessions and in the wider context. 

Practice description

I take a holistic approach to my work as supervisor and counsellor. I trained in person centred therapy qualifying in 1996 and have built a practise since by training in CBT,  Critical Incident Support, Transactional Analysis and Solution Focused therapy. I have worked with Children and young people for 14 years as well as adults; individuals, groups and Employee Assistance Schemes. 

I teach Mindfulness and have a particular interest in resolving stress, anxiety and depression.

I work with special needs groups, children and adults, OCD, ADHD, ADD and with substance misuse and family/ relationship issues.

My first session

At the first session,we would spend time building a relationship, discovering if we can work well together and then agreeing a contract. This would include what we can expect of each other, how we can fulfil those expectations and when to review the supervision process, to ensure that it meets the changing needs of the counsellor being supervised.
