About me and my therapy practice

I'm an experienced counsellor trainer and supervisor. Naturally and professionally I am a person centred counsellor but offer a range of therapies including CBT,solution focused and relational models. My practice is client centred working at your pace in a safe, calm and non-judgmental environment. I offer in depth understanding in the role of a 'carer' exploring all issues related to this work. With particular interest in individuals and all their experiences in this role from isolation and stress to changes in lifestyle and health. I have particular experience in dementia, lung conditions and heart disease. I am informed and have experience with Aspergers Syndrome, diagnosed and undiagnosed, in individuals and the affect on the family. I have undertaken a variety of workshops exploring bereavement and have worked extensively with individual clients experiencing bereavement and loss. I also work with clients going through loss as a consequence of separation and divorce, coping with loss of status, friends, family, finances etc. This is a brief summary of my practice so please feel free to contact me by phone or email and I will answer any questions you may have. All sessions are 1 hour long. First session as an introduction is 1 and a half hours. I look forward to hearing from you.
