About me and my therapy practice

Are you feeling overwhelmed with life's challenges?  As a qualified counsellor, I'm here to listen and help you make positive steps forward.  Please call to set up an initial free session, to discuss what you want from counselling and how I can help.

Few of us are able to work well when we are worried about something or unhappy. I believe talking helps us understand our present and past difficulties, so we can make better sense of our lives.

I provide a safe space so you can explore your thoughts, feelings, experiences and any issues concerning you. I aim to listen to you without judgement, so we can think about your feelings and try to understand how they may be affecting your life. We can discuss your preferred way of working and find ways that make it easier for you to express your feelings, such as: talking or using creative materials. The counselling sessions are led by you, so it is up to you what you want to talk about in sessions. I ask questions, to help you explore any experiences or issues you have chosen to tell me about.

Over time, I believe counselling can help you understand yourself better, therefore increase your happiness and confidence. Feeling heard and understood can improve the way you feel about yourself, your relationships and your quality of life.

About me and my therapy practice

Working together

I offer a safe space to help you reflect on your work with clients, including work with children and young people. I aim to develop a collaborative working relationship with you, so you feel safe enough to openly explore any thoughts, feelings and experiences about your work, without judgement. In supervision we explore your client work together to help us understand your clients better and improve your work with them. This includes exploring any issues arising from sessions, celebrating progress and success, discussing any difficulties, blindspots or ethical dilemmas, increasing your self-awareness and resilience, and thinking about ways to facilitate positive changes in your clients and improve their wellbeing.

How I Work

I provide purposeful supervision to counsellors, teachers and those in helping professions. My relational, integrative and creative approach to supervision enables flexibility in my thinking, helping me adapt to individual learning styles and different therapeutic orientations. My integrative approach to counselling underpins my supervisory practice. This includes person centred values, alongside relational and systemic thinking. I work within the guidelines of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework and negotiate a working contract before embarking on our journey together.
