About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative counsellor and supervisor. I have been in practice as a counsellor since 2009. previously, I was a special needs teacher and lecturer.

I work with adults, children, couples, and, sometimes, families, helping my clients to address complex and contradictory issues in their lives, helping my clients to feel self-empowered, accepted and affirmed through offering a safe, healing space, creation and innovation, and a pro-active and relationally based practice. I use talking therapy above all, but also arts therapy, play therapy, the use of diagrams and maps, and an emphasis on a person-centred, humanistic, existential practice, looking at ways to help my clients integrate and accept the parts of themselves, and their fragmentary lives.

I believe that many people are traumatised and this is an area of therapy which I prioritise, as is attachment and safe relationship.

Practice description

I work from my home in private practice. I also work for a GP surgery and for Employer Assisted programmes. I have worked as a counsellor in schools, rape crisis centres, womens centres and in child counselling organisations.

 

My first session

The first session is a chance for my clients to ask questions about my practice, and for discussion about how the therapy is to proceeed. We set up a contract and a working alliance, discussing the possible issues which the client would like to address, and.,if appropriate, how many counselling sessions would be beneficial.
