About me and my therapy practice

I provide therapy in the East Midlands using an integrative humanistic approach and work with clients both in the short and long term. I have 20 years experience working in NHS, Police, Educational and Charitable sectors.  I always aim to see you within a few days of your initial contact, Give me a call or send me an email if you would like a free no obligation chat at a time convenient for you.

Practice description

My theoretical approach reflects my own morals and values. This is one of a Humanistic approach. I offer a pluralistic model of techniques. The nature of my counselling is based upon the belief that each person is a unique individual and equal irrespective of age, race, colour, nationality, religion, ethnic or national origin, disability, sexual orientation, marital status or gender. I hold a deep respect for the significance and worth of each unique individual. Each person has an equal worth and dignity in his/her own right and has a capacity and right for self-direction. I believe that a person’s life is organic and we all have a self-actualisation process and continually strive for personal growth. I believe in the capacity of the individual to manage constructively all aspects of their own life. It is my aim to provide an opportunity for the client to work towards living in a way s/he experiences as more satisfying and resourceful.

My first session

A person will be greeted by myself in a warm, safe building.  I will begin the introduction and describe further the counselling I can offer with regards to boundaries, confidentiality, record keeping and answer any questions a person may have about the counselling process.  I will then ask a person to complete a short wellbeing form which takes a couple of minutes.  From there-on a person can direct where we go from there.  This is your time to use how you want and we will progress at your pace.
