About me and my therapy practice

I use a range of interventions, depending on your needs. I hope to create a safe, empathic and non-judgemental environment in which you can explore and better understand yourself. I believe appropriate humour is important and yes, it's OK to swear!

Working integratively means that I offer a range of interventions in my work with clients... it's like having a toolbox; depending on the issue, I use different tools to address the problem. Having said that, therapy is not about me 'fixing you', or giving you advice and opinions. I will however, help you to gain insight and make better sense of your thoughts and feeling. 

The counselling world is full of jargon which can be daunting when you have made an important step in considering seeking support. I will endeavour to answer your queries and put your mind at ease. Change is possible whatever issues you are facing in your life.

I have a foundation degree in counselling and psychotherapy and a diploma in Understanding Autism.

I'm an NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Practitioner and believe my background in people development and coaching further enhances my counselling practice.

I therefore also offer Personal Consultancy which is a framework for integrating coaching with counselling. This approach gives us the flexibility to address external issues as well as explore internal thoughts and feelings. 

I’ve also been the Managing Director of a learning and development company, so understand the pressures and challenges of the working environment, including leading and managing people.

I am passionate about the outdoors and how nature can have a positive effect on our mental wellbeing so offer walk and talk Nature Therapy also.

As a member of the BACP I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Counselling and Psychotherapy and have professional indemnity insurance and I also have regular clinical supervision.

Practice description

I offer online, face-to-face and phone sessions.

Online sessions are via Zoom, WhatsApp or FaceTime.

Face-to-face sessions are from my private practice in East Haddon.

Walk and Talk sessions are also available, depending on suitability and location.

My first session

It is important to find the right counsellor for you where you are able to build a trusting and safe relationship, so that you can feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings.

Therefore, I offer a complementary initial half hour session to discuss how we might work together, what you may want to work on and answer any questions you may have. We can then decide whether I am the right counsellor for you and there is no obligation to return.

Should you decide you want to work with me, then subsequent sessions are typically 50 minutes in duration typically on a weekly basis, but we can discuss frequency when we speak. It is impossible to know how many sessions you may want/need as everyone is different and we can review this on an ongoing basis. 

You are not obliged to sign up for a set number of sessions; some clients decide after a couple of sessions they are not ready yet and others may continue therapy for months and sometimes years, it's entirely up to you.

We will also agree a therapeutic contract for working together.

About me and my therapy practice

I work with trainees, newly qualified and experienced supervisees, working with clients with diverse presenting issues. I also work with school pastoral and safeguarding teams.

My supervision style has been called ‘nurturing’; holding a safe space for both you and your clients. I also bring humour to our work! I use coaching questions so that you can grow and develop and I'm always learning from my supervisees too!

I find many supervisees focus on what they could have done differently so I like to give space for recognising the positive client work you’re doing also!

My purpose is to help individuals realise their potential so I love my supervision work.

I'm a practising Counsellor; I believe it is important for me to working with my own clients as this keeps me relevant and up to date on current practices.

My background in business and having my own private practice means I can also support you in setting up and running yours too!

I'm person-centred trained, but consider myself to be more integrative and supervise many different modalities.

I have an OCN Certificate in Counselling Supervision which is a recognised certificate by educational institutions, so along with my experience this means I meet the criteria required to supervise trainees.

I also have experience of representing under 18s at Child Protection Conferences.

I’m an NLP Practitioner and have been the Managing Director of a learning and development company, so understand the pressures and challenges of the working environment.

I also offer nature therapy.

I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework, have professional indemnity insurance and I have regular supervision. 

Practice description

I currently offer face to face and online supervision.

Supervision is a investment in your own development and I hope that when we meet you will see my fees reflect the service I provide. I continue to invest heavily in my own ongoing development and my background in learning and development means I bring additional insight and opportunity for growth. I bring an holistic approach to our work, which I sincerely hope will benefit you in many ways, both personally and professionally.
