About me and my therapy practiceThank you for visiting my Profile page.
I provide face-to-face, Skype and telephone counselling for individual adults, from a new therapy room at my home in the Leckhampton area of Cheltenham.
I can offer you a safe space where you can speak freely in confidence and without being judged.
My training was in an integrative way of working, bringing together Person-Centred and Psychodynamic approaches, to which I have added short-term Solution-Focus.
What this means in practice is essentially, establishing a relationship of trust with each client, reflecting on their situation and what it means for them at the present time. We may also talk about the background – how patterns from the past may be affecting what is happening now. We will look at the possibilities for change in the future, and my goal will be to enable the client to discover the resources and practical techniques needed to make those changes.
My experience over the past 10 years includes bereavement support, general counselling and supervision in the IAPT service of the NHS, and workplace counselling for an Employee Assistance Programme. My clients bring a wide range of concerns, causing worry, frustration, hurt, sadness, anger, or distress. Most people really do find it’s good to talk. I look forward to talking with you.
