About me and my therapy practice

Would you like to feel calmer, more confident, resilient or less anxious? 

Whatever you might be struggling with, I offer you the opportunity to work it through. I am an experienced counsellor offering you warmth and understanding, without judgement. I believe that everyone can resolve their own difficulties and find their own answers and I offer you my full commitment and dedication in this endeavor.

At the outset you may know exactly what you want or what is troubling you; or you may feel anxious, distressed or confused or angry and want to work out why, the reasons may emerge through our work together.

I believe counselling is an investment in yourself, your relationships and your future.

I have over 30 years of experience of working in roles supporting and facilitating others including; teaching, training, coaching, human resources, disability and parent support.

You are very welcome to contact me by phone or email, I am very happy to answer any questions you may have.

Practice description

I offer you warmth and understanding, without judgement. I may be able to help you to:

  • make sense of your situation
  • understand yourself, your experiences and behaviour patterns more fully
  • manage anxiety, low mood, motivation or self esteem
  • identify more rewarding ways of doing things and build resilience
  • work through relationship difficulties and identify recurring patterns
  • find your own answers, solutions and support you to develop a new perspective on your life
  • identify any changes you may want to make and be supported to make them
  • develop what you need to live your life more fully and fulfil your potential

You can develop a greater understanding of yourself and your experiences by exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. We may uncover important beliefs that underpin the way in which you deal with your life situation. This understanding can enable you to feel empowered, approach things differently and thus manage your situation. I enjoy my work as a counsellor and am passionate about the benefits of Counselling to enable you to find your own path and as a powerful healing process. It is both a responsibility and a privilege to be an active part of your exploration and new understanding. I offer you my full commitment and dedication.

About me and my therapy practice

I strive to offer supervision in a supervisee-centred way, respecting your process and unique way of working with your clients, what ever approach that might be.

Over time my practice has broadened, and in line with client/supervisees needs or requests I have integrated other ways of working whilst remaining fundamentally routed in a humanistic and relational approach. I believe that my way of working is orientated towards an experiential approach.

I see supervision as a space to:

  • offload and express emotion or concerns.

  • work through difficulties, challenges and ethical dilemmas.

  • reflect on theory and it's application,

  • explore your relationship with your client, removing any barriers to openness and presence,

  • explore and symbolise your own process as well as your client's,

I believe that supervision is an integral part of our self care as therapists and strive to offer a restorative experience. I operate from the perspective that we are colleagues and thus we work collaboratively together.

Practice description

I believe that the supervisory relationship is fundamental and strive to offer warmth, understanding, openness and safety to facilitate full exploration of your work.

As part of my commitment to equalising the balance of power, I pay particular attention to the contracting process to enable us to explore our expectations, needs and boundaries. I am committed to ongoing review of the effectiveness of our work and invite your feedback.

I see my role is primarily about facilitating growth and development of your therapeutic practice. I strive to offer a space, free from external judgement, to enable you to fully explore what you might find demanding or challenging. I believe this exploration accompanied with appropriate respectful challenge is key to promoting development.

I have been trained to an Advanced Professional Level, at the University of Strathclyde and have been practicing as supervisor since 2012.

I have a number of years of experience in managing a counselling service with 20+ counsellors, responsibilities included recruitment, development of policy and procedures, day to day management, training development and introduction of a mentoring system for Counsellors in training.

My first session

I suggest we meet for an initial free half hour to explore working together.

I believe relationship is the foundation of effective supervision work.  Working out if there is a resonance between us feels very important to me, we can only get a sense of this by spending some time together.

I feel it's important to explore if there is a good match between what you are looking for and what I can offer.

If we decide to work together, my standard rate is £55 per hour and £50 for those on low incomes. £60 corporate rate.
