About me and my therapy practice

I've been working as a counsellor for over 17 years and as a qualified supervisor for 8 years. Over this time I have worked in schools (primary and secondary), Hospices, Refuges, YMCA's, Charities, Mediation Services and Private Practice.

My youngest client was 6 years old and my oldest 70.

Having trained as a Humanistic Integrative counsellor I focus on working with my clients, emotional, mental and physical health. When possible, when clients are open to it, I like to work creatively, often using sand-tray, drawing, role play and more, I find this is often a wonderful eye opener for clients and can help move the work along, enabling us to find the unspoken and speak it, helping clients to not feel stuck.


Practice description

At present sessions are offered via video call, telephone or walk and talk. 

It's always best to start with an informal discussion over the phone so that you can ask any questions and find out if I am the right counsellor for you.

My first session

Before we begin working together I'd like us to have a half an hour chat so that we can be clear about what you are looking for and an opportunity for you to ask any questions you have, no matter how weird you think they are, I promise you they won't be.

Following this, should you wish to begin our first session will be arranged.  The session will be 50 minutes long (as are all subsequent sessions), in the first session I will ask a lot more questions but we take our time, no pressure.  Then I sit back a little and let you take the lead from there.

What I can help with

Abuse, AIDS/HIV, Anxiety, Bereavement, Cancer, Child related issues, Chronic fatigue syndrome / ME, Cultural issues, Depression, Health related issues, Identity issues, Infertility, Loss, Men's issues, Personal development, Pregnancy related issues, Redundancy, Self esteem, Self-harm, Sexual identity, Sexuality, Spirituality, Stress, Women's issues, Work related issues

About me and my therapy practice

I've been working as a counsellor for over 17 years and as a qualified supervisor for 8 years. Over this time I have worked in schools (primary and secondary), Hospices, Refuges, YMCA's, Charities, Mediation Services and Private Practice.

In 2010 I took on a counselling project and found myself supervising volunteer counsellors. Some experienced, some novices and all from different therapeutic approaches, psychodynamic, integrative, play therapy, art therapy and more. I loved the work but was keen to support my new role with training. In 2012 I qualified with a Diploma in Individual and Group Supervision, from Cascade.

I have loved the work I have carried out in both 1-1 and group supervision, the process of reflection and understanding is wonderful to experience collaboratively and when possible I enjoy working creatively. Toys, stones and pencils really do help get to the heart of our responses and processes so much quicker.

I believe supervision should be enjoyable and exciting most of the time, allowing for the difficult challenges when necessary as that's where we develop and grow the most.

Practice description

At the moment I offer online, telephone and walk and talk supervision. If you have any questions or would like an informal introductory chat, please get in touch. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Having trained as a Humanistic Integrative counsellor I bring this into my supervision.  When supervisees are open to it, I like to work creatively, often using sand-tray, drawing, role play and more, I find this is offers wonderful insight into our clients and our response to them, and can help move the work along, enabling us to find the unspoken and speak it, helping clients to not feel stuck.
