About me and my therapy practice

I believe in a holistic approach to overcoming the difficulties we can often face in life and I offer safe, non-judgmental and confidential support in helping you find ways to regain a sense of emotional well-being. People seek counselling for a number of reasons; for reassurance and support and coping with mental health difficulties. Counselling can help people who are unsure how they are feeling and is also helpful if a traumatic event has been encountered. I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and a registered and accredited member of BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy). I began my counselling studies after the sudden death of my father in 2001. I wanted to understand more about the grieving process and how to help others with emotional and personal difficulties. Since qualifying I have worked as a counsellor within Education, in the Public and Voluntary Sectors and I have a wealth of experience working with a number of issues.  I offer face to face, video and telephone counselling. I am ASIST (suicide first aid & prevention) trained and a Trauma Informed counsellor (member of the Complex Trauma Therapist Network UK). I work as an integrative counsellor, which means I use a range of theoretical models to facilitate profound and positive change. My work is client led, so we work on the issues you bring. I am trained in the Person Centred Approach, Solution Focussed Therapy, low intensity CBT, Mindfulness, Life Coaching and Neuro Linguistic Programming. I am an Expressive Art therapist & facilitator and I trained in the lineage of Natalie Rogers, the founder of The Creative Connection. As a Mindfulness Practitioner I incorporate mindful approaches into the Walk & Talk therapy I offer. See more about this on my website.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified Supervisor offering supervision to trainee and qualified Counsellors.

My training for supervision is informed by the model of Hawkins & Shohet Seven eyed process model and Holloway's systems approach.

"A working alliance between the supervisor and counsellor in which the counsellor can offer an account or recording of their work; reflect on it; receive feedback and where appropriate guidance. The object of this alliance is to enable the counsellor to gain in ethical competence, confidence and creativity in order to give their best possible service to the client." (Inskipp & Proctor)

For a supervisory relationship to be effective it is important that we work collaboratively in a understanding and open way. A supervisee should feel safe to explore their work without being judged or feeling there is no balance of power. By us both being honest and open we can build a relationship that is both beneficial to you and to your clients.

You can telephone or e-mail me to arrange an initial meeting to explore how we might work together. I am passionate about supporting and encouraging other counsellors, both trainee and qualified, in their professional development. Should you decide that we can work together, then I will strive to build and maintain your trust, honour and value your beliefs and identify and build on your strengths. Supervision is a vital part of our work, to give us the chance to offload and prevent burnout.

Please contact me if you would like any more information or to arrange a meeting.
