About me and my therapy practice

I started my training in Humanistic counselling, then concentrated on Psychodynamic work for my Masters.  I now work in an Integrative way, also incorporating elements of CBT, Mindfulness and NLP, so that I can tailor work to fit the specific needs of the client.

I have been counselling for over 10 years, getting an M.A. in Counselling from Goldsmith’s College, University of London.  

I’ve worked in many different settings, with people of all ages, interests and abilities, in a variety of situations including a women’s refuge, college, school etc.  I am also a dyslexia specialist teacher/assessor, so very aware of the strengths and difficulties of having an SpLD (Specific Learning Difficulty) - which is often relevant to counselling.

In counselling it is important to be aware of different beliefs and traditions – to admit where there is lack of knowledge and to strive to increase awareness, be open to new ideas, whilst valuing each individual. No one should be at a disadvantage because of any perceived ‘difference’ - difference and diversity should be celebrated.  

I also believe that when listened to, without value judgement, everyone can be empowered to work towards overcoming their difficulties.  To feel respected and valued is an essential part of someone’s appreciation of their own self worth.
