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. including anxiety and depression.  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


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).

Practice description

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.

My first session

I am happy to have an initial chat over the phone, for 15 to 30 minutes, at no charge.

 Following this I usually suggest we have a full one hour consultation session prior to making our decision about working together, to give us a substantial opportunity to establish whether we are a 'good fit'. 

I am also very happy to answer any questions via email.
