About me and my therapy practice

With over 21 years of work experience, I can help you develop an understanding of yourself and others, and provide you with the support to work on the problems you face, facilitating positive change. It is a way of reducing confusion and enabling choice; it is not about forcing you to take a particular course of action. During the counselling session, I aim to provide a safe place where you can share your thoughts, feelings and concerns in as much detail as you wish. You will neither be judged nor have ideas or opinions imposed upon you. I believe that each person has the resources within, to grow and empower themselves. As such, professionalism is a given – confidentiality, discretion and respect are of paramount importance to me and my approach is friendly and down-to-earth. The first appointment will be an opportunity to discuss whether continued counselling would be appropriate to your needs and therefore it is without obligation on either side to continue.

About me and my therapy practice

I bring over 22 years of work experience as a Therapist in private practice. Also gaining a broad knowledge of other work settings : Educational setting, HMP Service setting, Borough Council setting, EAP setting, NHS setting.

I see the role of Supervisor as providing a ‘third’ perspective to the relationship of the Counsellor and client.  I enjoy working collaboratively with a range of Supervisees and their different needs, clients, settings and roles.  My aim is to build on your existing strengths and to keep your skills and knowledge up to date.

I am particularly interested in helping practitioners explore the dynamics, especially those hidden, between themselves and their client(s) and I pay particular attention to the influence the setting has on the work and how the individual practitioner is able to take up their role.  I also thoroughly enjoy working with groups and their dynamics.

My first session

Choosing a Supervisor is an important decision for you and I recognize the importance of discussing your needs, course requirements and outcomes, prior to any arrangement. To that end, I provide a free 30 minutes session to discuss options and your needs, without obligation.
