About me and my therapy practice

I have over 15 years of experience as a therapist working with individuals and couples providing both time limited and open ended counselling, in addition to providing group therapies. As well as my private practice, I have worked within various organisations, specialising in supporting people dealing with trauma, childhood sexual abuse, sexuality, addictions, shame/guilt, and bereavement. I am also a qualified clinical supervisor, supporting private practitioners and counsellors across local agencies.

At the forefront of my practice, is the knowledge that as humans, it is a given that we are all vulnerable to feeling painful emotions. However, for many, the thought of engaging in counselling and sharing your problems, fears and difficulties can be intimidating. We may prefer to not burden loved ones, avoid/supress or artificially escape our pain and often traumatic experiences in the hope we can find temporary relief. This strategy can leave people feeling isolated, confused and overwhelmed.

My approach:

I work from an integrative and relational perspective, meaning I draw from many theories to help shed light on a client’s unique needs, with a focus on valuing respect and diversity at the heart of my work.

I believe unresolved emotional pain, whether it stems from long standing issues born from our past, current life difficulties, or a blend of the two, can manifest itself in many detrimental health issues, including stress, anxiety and depression.

Once a foundation of trust is established I aim to help clients gain insights and increased understanding into patterns of relating to self and others, explore inner resources for personal development, identify/remove obstacles to growth and explore holistic methods to assist healing/wellbeing. In doing so, I hope to support clients in finding deeper levels of understanding, meaning and new ways to take their life into a more fulfilled direction.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified integrative relational supervisor from the Metanoia Institute.

Since 2015 I have enjoyed providing both group and individual supervision for the counsellors at the Kingston Women's Centre and Kingston Bereavement Service.

For over 10 years I provided clinical supervision to counsellors specialising in addictions and domestic violence at the EACH Counselling & Support service.

Alongside my agency work, I also provide private individual and group supervision to trainee's and qualified professionals. 

I use the ‘Seven-eyed Model’ of supervision, which takes a personal and social systems perspective and provides me with a valuable framework for examining the process of supervision. This approach is useful in providing a map that explores many dynamics from the range of finer/precise details to the impact of the wider context on our work. Meaning, whichever ‘eye’ we look through we will see a different facet of the whole.

In summary, my philosophy of supervision is a collaborative process of trust, open communication, playfulness (giving volume to our hunches and creativity), where professionals can create enhanced meaning and understanding to the clients world.
