About me and my therapy practice

I have a Diploma in Counselling and also an MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Having worked as a counsellor for over 20 years in various settings I have worked with a diverse range of clients in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, sexuality and disability and helped people deal with a wide range of issues. I provide counselling and supervision from an office at my home in Heaton Mersey which is easily accessible by car or public transport for workers and residents of South Manchester and Stockport. I offer weekday, evening and weekend appointments. I will reply to any phone or email messages promptly and can usually arrange an initial appointment within a week. The purpose of this meeting, which is at a reduced fee, is for us to decide together whether the type of counselling I offer is likely to help you. Counselling can help you to explore and express your thoughts and feelings about your life. These might relate to past events as well as to current issues. I help clients come to their own understanding about themselves, rather than providing them with advice.  Counselling can be an opportunity to get things off your chest, sometimes things you have never spoken to anybody about before.

About me and my therapy practice


I offer supervision for trained counsellors and mental health workers as well as those in training. As with my counselling practice I work from a Person Centred perspective, integrating other theoretical perspectives and approaches.

Experience

Having worked as a counsellor for over 20 years in various settings including a GP Practice, Manchester University and Stockport College, I have worked with a diverse range of clients in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, sexuality and disability and helped people deal with a wide range of issues.

For ten years I worked as the team leader for a team of counsellors and mental health practitioners in a large further education college.

Theoretical approach

I integrate a variety of theoretical approaches into my core approach which is Person Centred. By providing a supportive relationship promoting an atmosphere of trust my aim is that supervisees can feel safe to explore concerns they may have about individual clients or their practice in general.

I aim to provide an experience of mutuality in supervision sessions, encouraging each supervisee to develop their own goals for supervision, including goals for each individual session. To help with this process I keep in mind Hawkins and Shohet’s Seven Eyed Model as well as the three main functions of supervision, normative, formative and supportive (first described as such by Inskipp and Proctor).
