I am counselling nationally, online, at this time also available for telephone counselling.   I would be happy to talk you through the options, no obligation.

About me and my therapy practice

You are considering counselling and wondering how to choose - let me help you by telling you about our first session. We will briefly discuss our counselling agreement, this includes confidentiality and GDPR and, as we discuss this, it will give time to relax. 

 Then, we will broadly outline the reasons for your visit. It is important to me that you feel comfortable, when we are working together, whether face to face, telephone or online counselling, the chemistry between us is important. After 20 minutes, I will ask you if you wish to continue?

If you don't wish to continue, no problem, no further questions - such as why not, the session stops and a full refund is given. I really do understand it's hard to sit in the counselling chair and it's best to do it when ready.

If you say yes, you wish to continue, our therapeutic journey together will begin.

I work with individuals as they explore, reconnect or re-discover themselves and with couples, who then either reconnect in a more positive framework or disconnect but in a more constructive way than previously.

Counselling young people to encourage and enable them to develop a more resilient attitude to life by recognising their strengths and being able to express themselves.

I also offer Single Session Therapy - one session, up to 100 minutes, to work on one issue (not suitable for addictions). To explore an issue in-depth and the possible resolutions, maybe look at all the achievable solutions and then create an action plan moving forward.


Practice description

I have accrued considerable counselling experience from over fifteen years in private practice and from my time in secondary schools, Children’s Centres, work settings and, in couples work, gained from over ten years working with the Relate organisation, as a relationship and young person's counsellor.

I am an integrative counsellor. Integrative, which in my case, means using a mix of several counselling theories, depending on your needs.

This means I can work with you on issues from the past, present or fears for the future. I believe the more therapeutic tools I have, the more options this gives me when working with you.

I also have qualifications in and experience working with NLP and Mindfulness.

All this training and experience means I have the flexibility to tailor my service to you, as an individual, couple, young person, EAP or group, to better meet your needs.

I have worked on issues from anxiety, bereavement, depression to low self esteem and trauma. Some people have a difficult decision to make and some have had a recent loss – this isn’t always a death, but it’s an unwanted ending of some kind.

Everyone is welcome and no problem is too small – if it’s an issue to you, with my experience, I hope to help.

Being an older counsellor probably helps too as I have a lot of life experience and have gained insights into many areas.

I aspire for our counselling time together to become a safe place and for our therapy to provide you with the time and space you need to explore your thoughts, feelings and beliefs, fully supported, as you heal and then YOU decide on your future path.

My first session

I offer online and telephone counselling at the moment (but I will include face to face in the hope that it won't be too long before it's an option again).

I send you our counselling agreement once we have agreed a day and time.  This outlines confidentiality and GDPR and helps keep admin on the day to a minimum.

My dedicated counselling room (f you come to me) is up a flight of stairs into a comfortable room with two easy chairs and a two seater sofa.

I offer all my adult clients a twenty minutes window to see if they can feel comfortable (I think chemistry between client and counsellor is so important, even online or via the phone).   We will then discuss the counselling agreement we will be working within, confidentiality and any initial queries you have.  We will then broadly outline your reasons for this session and then, after twenty minutes - I will ask if you wish to continue and if you do not feel comfortable at this point, the session can end and you will receive a full refund, same day.  

Hopefully, this will give you the confidence to proceed - the first step can be hard enough without worrying you will waste your money too!

Young People go through a one hour assessment process so sadly I cannot offer them the same twenty minute option, at this time.

Emails are usually answered same day and messages left with a number on the answer machine will returned as soon as possible but sometimes this will be the next day - if any longer there is usually a message left on the machine to say when I am back.

About me and my therapy practice

April 21, I've just got my PG Supervision Certificate and I am ready to start supervising individuals & soon I will offer online group supervision - both at discounted prices for the first six sessions.

I use the Seven Eyed Supervision Model - this was developed by Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet in 1985, who integrated the relational and systematic aspects of supervision in a single theoretical model.  The model is relational because it focuses on the relationship between the client, therapist and supervisor and systemic because it focuses on the interplay between each relationship and their context within the wider system.

I am offering one to one supervision to therapeutic and non therapeutic supervisees needing support in one or one and a half hour options.  

If there is sufficient interest, I will be offering monthly, small group supervision for 4 up to 6 attendees for one hour, one and a half hours up to two hours depending on the wishes of most attendees 

Practice description

Now I have my Post Graduation Supervision Certificate I am open for supervisees from the therapeutic and non therapeutic environments and, if there is any interest, would like to develop a small supervision group - four up to six for online supervision - as I am not as experienced in the supervision area, I am offering discounted fees (33%) for both individual and group supervision for the first six sessions.

I am an experienced integrative counsellor and I work with individuals, young people (11+) and relationships / couples

I am experienced working with groups - Separated Parents Information Programme and now Male Perpetrators of Domestic Abuse for many years, most of these attendees do not want to be there at first, so it has been challenging in one way that I am sure group supervision wont be!

If you are interested, please contact me for more information and let me know if you would prefer individual or group (or both) supervision and whether you would prefer 60, 90 minutes or if group up to  120 minutes monthly.

I am offering a discounted rate for each of six individual sessions at £30 per hour and each of six group sessions at £10 per attendee if for one hour or £15 per attendee if for 90 minutes and £20 if for 120 minutes.

Please contact me to discussion / check if we are a good fit - no obligation

My first session

This would depend in if one to one supervision or group but a copy of the supervision contract will be emailed to you prior to the first session and a few minutes will be taken to review as issues / concerns and then the supervision will begin (as will the process of deciding if we are a good fit (hopefully) or not)
