About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified BACP Accredited Counsellor and Eating Disorder Practitioner endorsed by the National Centre for Eating Disorders. I currently work in private practice and hold CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Counselling Studies and an Advanced Specialist Diploma in Clinical Supervision.

Since qualifying, I have attended various CPD events and courses. From these short courses, I have adopted various interventions which I may use from time to time if I feel they would help and with my clients' permission. 

I have past experience as a CPCAB tutor facilitating courses for those wanting to undertake training as a counsellor.

I hold the status of accreditation with the BACP have a level 6 Diploma in Clinical Supervision.

My specialism as a practitioner is eating disorders and obesity and I hold Master Practitioner status with National Centre for Eating Disorders in order to work efficiently and safely with this client group.

My first session

Your first session with me would be in the form of an introduction and this would be a reduced fee of £20.  This session can last up to one hour.  During this time, we will focus on any previous experience you may have had with counselling, how counselling can help (if no previous experience), an explanation of how I work and an exploration of what you require from counselling.  This introduction is an opportunity for us to get a feel of one another in order to ascertain whether we could form a good therapeutic relationship.

About me and my therapy practice

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Clinical Supervision.

For me, supervision is the lynchpin of my own counselling practice.  It provides an insight into the relationship between supervisee and client and, with appropriate challenge, helps recognition of how our own processes can get intertwined with our client work, thus helping us to move forward and improve the quality of our work.  I offer support, encouragement and advice when dealing with difficult situations, ethical dilemmas and practice concerns with an open mind.  I see the supervisee/supervisor relationship as an important part of the work and something to be nurtured and reviewed regularly.  I believe a good relationship is based on trust, honesty and a mutual congruence and is something I would aim to take forward in my work with you.

A particular area of interest for me as a practitioner is eating disorders and obesity and I am consistently enhancing my knowledge through training in order to work efficiently and safely with this client group.
