About me and my therapy practice

Hello and a warm welcome to my profile which I hope you will find useful. I am an integrative counsellor offering a warm non-judgemental approach.   I can offer you a warm and professional approach to work in the way that best suits your needs. I have experience of working on range of life challenges including anxiety, depression, self imagine, loss, relationships issues as well as work related issues such as bullying, harassment.

I use an integrative approach to counselling having studied a variety of therapy approaches including person centred therapy, CBT, crisis counselling, mindfulness, loss and bereavement and solution focused training. This allows me to listen and respond to the needs of my clients in a way that suits their individual needs ensuring that you will be at the heart of the process right from the beginning.

I have worked within a work place setting for the NHS for many years providing support to all levels of NHS staff on a full range of issues as well as my own private practice for some years. I can provide support to individuals, EAPs or organisations and have experience of working with a range of issues. One of my areas of keen interest is stress management and I am a Fellow Member of the International Stress Management Association and have developed many individual and group stress management programmes. I am also a Critical Incident Stress Management trained responder enabling me to support people following distressing events.

I have experience in offering group sessions for personal awareness and other wellbeing topics including transactional analysis, CBT and a range of self awareness methods. I also have experience of working on wellbeing issues and integrating these into counselling including mindfulness, meditation, relaxation and psycho-education awareness.
